Big Brother & The Holding Company

Date: Sept 29 - Sept 30, 2021
Time: 3:00 PM
Big Brother and the Holding Company is considered one of the original, first wave of great psychedelic bands that came out of San Francisco in the summer of 1965. Founders Peter Albin and Sam Andrew met James Gurley and Dave Getz who joined the band in 1966. And to complete their sound, the legendary Janis Joplin joined as lead singer. The Monterey Pop Festival in the summer of 1967 was the first great international Rock festival and it was the moment when Big Brother and Joplin blew open the collective mind of the audience and rose to the top of the Rock music hierarchy. Fast forward to 1987 when the four original members would re-group to perform again. Since then, Big Brother and the Holding Company has toured continuously in the US, Canada, Europe and Asia. After losing James Gurley in 2009 and Sam Andrew in 2015, Albin and Getz continue to present the music of Big Brother and the Holding Co to the world: “Piece of My Heart,” “Summertime,” “Ball and Chain” and more.

All Court of Honor Stage shows are free with Big E admission and seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. The stage is located in front of the iconic Coliseum.
