Jessie's Girl is a band of New York City's best rock/pop musicians and singers literally "packing the house" every Saturday night at the Canal Room with a show that brings everybody "Back To The Eighties!"

This marks their debut at Penn's Peak.

With a lineup including four of NYC's best rock and pop vocalists dressing and performing as 80's icons, and a band whose members' performances have been described by the 80's artists themselves as "Spot on" (Debbie Gibson), "Amazing" (Tiffany), "Super tight" (MC Hammer) and "Just like the freakin record!" (Naughty By Nature) - JESSIE'S GIRL is the definitive 80's experience.

Throw on top of that: a load of super-fun choreography, audience participation, props, costumes bubbles, and confetti.

Members of the JESSIE'S GIRL have toured the country and performed onstage with 80's artists Bret Michaels, MC Hammer, Tiffany, Debbie Gibson, Colin Hay (Men At Work), Naughty By Nature, Tone Loc, and many more.

The Marshall Tucker Band got its start in Spartanburg,S.C., borrowing the name "Marshall Tucker" from a piano tuner whose name was found on a key ring in their old rehearsal space.

In 1972, they signed with Capricorn Records, the same label that guided The Allman Brothers Band, Wet Willie, and others to national fame. The MTB opened shows for The Allman Brothers in 1973, and the following year, they began to headline their own shows across America due to the platinum-plus sales of their debut album.

The Marshall Tucker Band would wow critics and influence major country acts like Alabama, The Kentucky Headhunters, Confederate Railroad, and Travis Tritt with its definitive blend of rock, rhythm & blues, jazz, country, and gospel.

Now, thanks to the expanding scope of today's music, a new generation of fans is learning what the rest of their fans have known for so long- that good music knows no boundaries. Along the way, the band has recorded 22 studio albums, three DVDs, three live albums and many compilations.

Paul Kantner along with Marty Balin founded Jefferson Airplane in 1965. The Airplane were the first San Francisco band to sign a major record deal, paving the way for other legends like Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin.

They headlined the original Woodstock Festival in 1969. Though they lasted a mere seven years, their influence and impact on rock music continues well into the 21st century.

In 1974, Kantner created Jefferson Starship with Balin, and again they enjoyed chart-topping success.

In 2007 they headlined "The Summer of Love 40th Anniversary Celebration" and performed at The Monterey Pop commemorative on the exact same stage as the historic landmark rock festival of 1967.

Jefferson Starship, the name created by PAUL for his 1971 solo debut "Blows Against The Empire" recording has endured 37 years as rock music's premier "political science fiction" themed band. That recording was the first and only to ever be nominated for literary science fiction's Hugo Award … a stellar achievement.
