Hot Tuna returns to New York City for one unforgettable evening of hard driving blues and soulful Americana. This year the band will celebrate Jack Casady’s 70th Birthday and promises to pull out all the stops with a roaring electric set.

Joining Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady this year will be very special guest Marty Balin, a fellow Jefferson Airplane founding member. Also on tap are multi-instrumentalists Barry Mitterhoff and Larry Campbell, vocalist Teresa Williams, and drummer Justin Guip. Additional special guests will be announced in the coming months. The Beacon Theatre concerts have become an annual holiday tradition – a spontaneous, innovative, rock and roll extravaganza not to be missed.

Rave reviews from the road! Check out what Pat Moran, from the CLog, says about about Hot Tuna during their recent stop at the Neighborhood Theater in Charlotte, NC.

We particularly like this description of “Good Shepard”:

Kaukonen and Casady revisited their Jefferson Airplane Alma Mater with “Good Shepard,” transforming the psychedelic pedal-work of the original into plaintive finger-picking, growling liquid bass, gypsy Django Reinhardt excursions and acoustic, prog flights of fancy before snapping back like a rubber band to a hill country stomp.

Whoa, doesn’t get any better than that!

Meet and Greet with Jack and Jorma

Give the Gift of Tuna

Give the Gift of Tuna this holiday season! Hot Tuna starts their winter tour on January 2, 2014 with a show at the Iron Horse Music Hall. What better way to start the new year! Hot Tuna is coming to a town near you! They play 29 shows! The winter tour starts in the northeast and winds its way south through Florida, Texas and Arizona before it shoots up the west coast making stops in California, Oregon and Washington State. That includes 2 shows at McCabe’s Guitar Shop, always a favorite spot to see Hot Tuna. Now that’s a lot of touring!

Special guests Leon Russell and David Lindley help open some of the shows. Be sure to check out the Sunshine Music and Blues Festival where Hot Tuna will share the stage with the Tedeschi Trucks Band and a host of others! Hope to see you at one of the shows.

For Your Information: NYC, Close to Sold Out!

Attention Hot Tuna Fans! If you were thinking of going to the Hot Tuna shows in New York City this fall, you better act quick! Word is that there are less than 200 tickets left for the Friday, November 22, 2013 show at the Concert Hall@NYSEC. And the Saturday November 23, 2013 show at the Beacon Theater is over 50% sold. So we are estimating that the Concert Hall will sell out in the next couple of weeks and The Beacon sometime in October, a good month before the show.

So, just a heads up to all you procrastinators out there (you know who you are), buy your tickets soon or you might not have a chance. Good Luck!

And to all those fans who have already bought tickets, Thank You! and we’ll see in November!

Hot Tuna to Play Filmore for SEVA Benefit

Hot Tuna is set to join The Blind Boys of Alabama and Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk on Saturday, November 2,2013 for a benefit show for SEVA. The “Sing Out for Seva” concert will be hosted by Wavy Gravy.

The Seva Foundation started as a small group with a big idea, and the idea was this: To be fully human, we must translate our compassion and concern into useful service.

That simple statement conveys something about the nature of compassion that is expressed in most spiritual traditions around the world — that compassion is not just about helping those less fortunate than ourselves, it’s about the realization that we are all connected as one human family.

If you buy VIP Tickets you get to meet and greet with Jorma and Jack and the other artists. Come on out to support a great cause!

VIP Tickets are only available through the Seva Foundation web site. These include: A post show meet and greet reception with the artists, a limited edition event poster signed by Wavy Gray and a collectors laminate pass.

The year-end Hot Tuna shows at the Fur Peace Ranch have been sold out for months, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait for 2014 to see them again. A new set of dates have just been announced. So just after a beautiful fall in Southern Ohio at Fur Peace Ranch Workshops, and a quick trip to Finland, Hot Tuna is unofficially on “The Holidays Tour.” It starts on with two shows in NYC and then swings through New England ending in the Midwest in Chicago.

Hot Tuna’s Annual New York City Celebration Features both An Acoustic and An Electric Night The legendary Hot Tuna returns to New York City for two unforgettable evenings of hard driving blues and soulful Americana. This year, the band will kick off with an intimate acoustic evening at The Concert Hall at New York Society for Ethical Culture on Friday, November 22 followed by a rockin’ roaring electric show at the Beacon Theatre on Saturday, November 23rd. Tuna’s Beacon shows have become an annual holiday tradition – a spontaneous, innovative musical journey not to be missed! Tickets: BeaconTheatre.com or 866-858-0008
