Big Brother and the Holding Company: ft. Original Members Peter Albin & Dave Getz + special guest Sam Cole (of Marshall House Project) are bringing their talents to HopMonk Novato!
Big Brother and the Holding Company– along with bands like The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Quicksilver Messenger Service – is considered one of the original, first wave of great psychedelic bands that came out of San Francisco in the summer of 1965.
Sam and Peter began jamming together in the basement/ballroom of an old Victorian mansion in the Haight –Ashbury district. With the help of their friend, future manager and concert promoter Chet Helms (The Family Dog, Avalon Ballroom), Big Brother and The Holding Company was born.
The band launched the career of Janis Joplin and recorded the hit album “Cheap Thrills,” cementing them as a part of rock music history. Their legacy as one of the great bands of the 1960s is secure. In their current live shows they perform original material as well as all of their legendary songs; “Piece of My Heart”, “Summertime”, “Ball and Chain”, “Bye Bye Baby” and more, as only the original creators of this music can.
Doors open at 7pm and the show beings at 8pm. Show is for 21+. Buy Tickets here
