The Bull Run and Devens present ‘Devens Rock 4 Warriors‘; a concert to celebrate wounded veterans and their families. This inaugural concert will feature Americas’ first Wounded Warrior band, VETTED, who aim to entertain, comfort, exalt, and help soldiers who are struggling to gain balance and normalcy. They have also enlisted The Persuasions, Hot Tuna (acoustic) , Lo Cash, and GE Smith (SNL, Hall & Oates, Dylan) and his all star band to salute the troops on Sunday, May 17th from 4-8 pm.

They will also be giving away a “GE Smith Signature Fender Telecaster” to a lucky winner. A raffle will be conducted on air, on our websites, on FB and at the doors, to be given to the lucky recipient at the concert. $30 to enter, with all proceeds of this going to Wounded Warrior Project.

Our friend, Jim Clash, at Forbes Magazine has a nice review of Jack’s 70th Birthday show at the Beacon Theater in New York City. Before the show, Jim interviewed Capt.

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!
