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. Mark Kelly, Astronaut and former shuttle pilot, at the Explorer’s Club. Jack and Jorma sat in on the interview then invited Mark to the Beacon show.

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!
Arrive early for your chance to meet and have a free professional photograph taken with these legendary musicians!
Make any store purchase of $25+ to get an autograph from Jorma, Jack or the whole band!
Bring your Martin Guitar for a free set of strings!
Epiphone will be on hand with giveaways and will be demoing Jack Casady’s signature bass!
We will be offering $100 off the Jack Casady Bass and while you’re here, get it signed by the man himself! Call to reserve your bass, only a very limited quantity are available!

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 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.
