Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 for three incredible years, reigning as the Queen of Rock 'n' Roll. The unmistakable voice filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort made her a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN is a musical journey celebrating the inspirations of one of rock 'n' roll's greatest legends.

“A rockin' good time...impassioned, thrilling talent."

“Hyper-energized tribute to one of American music's great icons, it's a joyful explosion."
