The Pasco-Hernando State College (PHSC) Foundation 2014 Performing Arts Series presents Marty Balin on Saturday, February 8 at 8 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center, on West Campus in New Port Richey at 10230 Ridge Road
Balin will perform an acoustical show of hits including “Volunteers,” “Miracles” and “Count on Me.” Balin rose to fame as the co-founder and featured vocalist for both the 1960s super group Jefferson Airplane and the 1970s chart topper Jefferson Starship. He released his first solo album in 1981 producing the Top 40 hits of “Hearts” and “Atlanta Woman.” During the 1990s, Balin continued to work with his Jefferson Airplane partners, including reuniting with Grace Slick and Paul Kantner for a triumphant reunion tour. In 1996, Balin and the other founding members of Jefferson Airplane were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Balin’s performance will include an intimate Question and Answer session during the show. A Meet and Greet appearance for ticket holders will be held at the Rao Musunuru, M.D. Art Gallery, located adjacent to the Performing Arts Center, immediately following Balin’s performance. His Music of My Life art exhibit includes paintings of John Lennon, Mick Jagger, Elton John, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin. Gallery exhibits are free and open to the public and are open before and after Performing Arts Series shows.
