Join us for another FREE Friday night concert on the river with Starship featuring Mickey Thomas!

Mickey Thomas is the owner of the soaring voice that propelled Starship through the decade of the 80’s. With his soulful and compelling vocals, Mickey has established himself as one of rock music’s most recognizable stars. Mickey made his mark in 1976 as lead vocalist on the mega-hit “Fooled Around And Fell In Love” with The Elvin Bishop Band. In 1979, Mickey joined Jefferson Starship as the lead vocalist, after the departure of Grace Slick and Marty Balin, and recorded a string of hits including “Jane”, “No Way Out”, “Find Your Way Back”, “Stranger”, and “Layin It On The Line”.   The group was renamed Starship in 1985 and went on to record three #1 hit songs including “We Built This City”, “Sara”, and “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, from the film Mannequin which also was an Academy Award nominee. Their hit “It’s Not Over Til It’s Over” became Major League Baseball’s theme in 1987. Mickey’s stellar voice and video charisma on Starships’s video classics such as “We Built This City” and “Sara” became staples on MTV and VH1. One can expect to hear hits from Starship and Jefferson Starship at Starship’s live performances, as well as a few selections from Jefferson Airplane as a nod to both bands’ beginnings.


The Parachute Brigade consists of six individuals with very different musical backgrounds coming together to create music that they love.

Their style can be described as Indie Rock meets Folk meets Pop Rock with influences from all across the board. Their sound is driven by infectious melodies and haunting vocal harmonies that are accompanied by lush guitars, interesting textures, and commanding drums.

In 2018, they were voted “Best Band in WV” by West Virginia Living Magazine, and in that same year they were honored to perform on Mountain Stage Radio Show, which is distributed by NPR Music. Then, in 2023 they won 2 awards from Born & Bred Magazine – 2023 Artist of the Year and 2023 Rock Artist of the Year.

The band started in the summer of 2012 as an acoustic, harmony driven quartet, but their sound quickly evolved into what it is today. However, they still have the ability to go from smaller, intimate settings to louder concert experiences.
