Jefferson Airplane’s debut show was on August 13, 1965 at the Matrix nightclub in San Francisco. The first performance featured Marty Balin on vocals, Paul Kantner on vocals/rhythm guitar, and Jorma Kaukonen on lead guitar. Signe Anderson, (who sang on Jefferson Airplane’s first recording “Jefferson Airplane Takes Off”) also performed. The bass player, Jack Casady and drummer Skip Spence, (who was later one of the original members of Moby Grape) joined the band two months later. Spencer Dryden became the drummer in June of 1966 and Grace Slick joined as vocalist in October of 1966. The band performed the first concert for Bill Graham at the legendary Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco in February of 1966. From the Jefferson Airplane website

Oh let me in I wanna be there
You shut your door
Now it ain't there
Without a word to me
Without a look at me
You turned me down without a care
Oh let me in
Hear what I'm, talking about
I gotta get in
But you keep putting me out
Without a call to me
Without a love for me
You don't even know if there is
One gram of doubt
Oh let me in baby
You're driving me crazy
Your playing games in my mind
Oh let me in honey
Don't tell me it's so funny
I didn't know that you could
Be that unkind
Oh let me in
You know I, want only you
I don't want to be told
by you what to do
Without a care for me
Without a love for me
Who's gonna talk for me
Who's gonna speak for me
You walked away for something
That you knew
Thank's for nothing
