Starship, Walt Disney World, Florida

Starship starring Mickey Thomas was featured as part of Walt Disney World's "Flower Power Concert Series" on April 2, 2011 at Epcot. Beginning as Jefferson Airplane in the 1960s, evolving into Jefferson Starship in the '70s and Starship in the '80s, the band has also included many members over the years. The lineup at this show was (left to right) guitarist Mark Abrahamian, vocalist Stephanie Calvert, drummer Darell Verdusco, vocalist Mickey Thomas, keyboardist Phil Bennett, and bassist Jeff Adams.

Not surprisingly the setlist included the band's biggest hits from the '80s - "Sara," "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now," "Jane," and "We Built This City," but they also dug way back into the files for "White Rabbit." Judging by the first several rows of audience in the American Gardens Theatre, Starship still has a strong fan following.

All in all, it was a very fun show.
