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!

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.
