Thanks Again to All our Fans! You guys are AWESOME!

Electric Hot Tuna is proud to be  a part of Bill Graham’s 81st Birthday Bash which will help raise money for the Bill Graham Memorial Foundation.

The Bill Graham Memorial Foundation, was formed in January of 2008 in memory of the legendary rock impresario, Bill Graham. The foundation is a public charity that is funded through individual and corporate contributions and grants.

The Foundation is guided by a broad-based group which includes Bill’s sons, several former long-time employees of Bill Graham Presents and other community leaders.

A mission of The Bill Graham Memorial Foundation is the giving of grants primarily in the areas of music, the arts and education, while also supporting social work, environmental protection, and spiritual and compassionate projects in our community. In this spirit, The Bill Graham Memorial Foundation seeks to assist those whose needs are oftentimes not served by larger philanthropic organizations. The mission includes education and outreach programs, the establishment of a museum and of an annual community award, the “Bill Graham Awards”. The Foundation holds annual fundraising events in San Francisco and New York.

If you have never heard Bill’s story you should. It is an amazing tale of an American Hero!

Hot Tuna, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, returns to the Beacon Theatre for two nights on December 9 and 10, 2011 to celebrate the music and the fun sparked off by the release of Steady As She Goes, their first studio album in 20 years. Larry Campbell, Teresa Williams, David Bromberg, Charlie Musselwhite, GE Smith and Steve Kimock will join electric Hot Tuna with band members extrordinaire Barry Mitterhoff and Skoota Warner for the 8 p.m. shows. The Beacon is at 2124 Broadway, New York City. For tickets and more information: www.beacon.theatre-

Helping them celebrate at the Beacon will be special guests, Charlie Musselwhite, master of the harmonica, who toured along with Hot Tuna and Jim Lauderdale earlier this year on the Hot Tuna Blues tour will be hanging with the guys for the weekend. Charlie’s talented harmonica playing and history steeped in the blues is a perfect blend to the Hot Tuna being served! So if you missed Charlie with Tuna earlier this year. Now is your chance.

During their more than four decade long career Jorma and Jack have created some of the most significant music of our time and Steady As She Goes shows that they remain one of the most innovative bands in American music. Recorded at Levon Helm’s studio and produced by Grammy-winning producer Larry Campbell, the album captures the energy of their live performances with Barry Mitterhoff on mandolin, drummer Skoota Warner (Cyndi Lauper, Matisyahu, Santana) as well as Campbell joining them on guitar, fiddle, organ and vocals and Theresa Williams on vocals.

David Bromberg, often referred to as the guitarist’s guitarist, will be joining Hot Tuna at the Beacon too! Jorma and David find themselves performing together a few times each year, and their roots run deep. It will be interesting to see if he comes acoustic or electric . . . only one way to find out!

GE Smith has to be one of the most sought after session players around. He has performed and recorded with an exceptionally wide spectrum of influential artists from Bob Dylan, Eddie Van Halen, Keith Richards, Mick Jagger, Rickie Lee Jones, Al Green, Bryan Ferry, David Gilmour, Roger Waters, Lonnie Mack and the list…too long to print.

Steve Kimock, who has earned a living wowing all kinds of audiences with his extraordinary guitar abilities, will also be joining the guys for the weekend. Steve adds a new element to the Tuna stew with his wide range of playing styles that can progress from jazz-influenced rhythms to Roky Erikson (13th Floor Elevators) styled psychedelic leads.

We hope everyone out there had a good summer. Electric Hot Tuna had a nice short tour at the end of August that went through Florida and Kentucky. It was lots of fun and the shows were very well received. Thanks to those who came out to see us. It was greatly appreciated.

During the tour some friends from Dish Magazine got on the bus for some catching up and a conversation of the future. Check it out.

Hopefully Mother Nature will let us play!

October is a great time of the year. The leaves are changing color as the days are getting shorter and kids everywhere are deciding what to be for Halloween. This year, why not dress the kids (or grand kids or even your favorite pet) as your favorite Hot Tuna character! If you do, send us a picture and we’ll post it on the site.

The band caught the early changes in the fall foliage coming off our west coast tour a couple of weeks ago. It was a great run through the upper northwest as we played some of our favorite west coast venues like The Gothic in Englewood, CO, The Aladdin in Portland, OR and of course Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, CA. We tried to figure out how many times Jorma and Jack have played Golden Gate. We estimated it to be a least “couple of dozen” times. If you think you know the answer, be sure to let us know. If you want to see some of the set lists from the West Coast swing, check out Jorma’s blog, Cracks In the Finish.

We are just a few weeks away from playing the season closing show at the Fur Peace Ranch. This year’s show will feature an outstanding guitar player and our very good friend, Steve Kimock. Steve is filling in for GE Smith who is on tour with some guy named Roger Waters. Although the show is sold out, there is one way to get in and see it. There are still some open spots for Jack’s Bass Workshop. It’s always a favorite. Speaking of Jack, there is an interesting interview of the Bass Master over at Blues Revue. In it, Jack talks about the impromptu jam session for Jimi Hendrix’s Electric Ladyland album. It’s a good read.

It looks like the Hot Tuna Birthday Celebration for Jorma at the Beacon Theater is just about SOLD OUT. FPR is sold out of all its tickets and there were only a few remaining tickets at the Beacon. The Beacon has said that some tickets may become available closer to the date of the show. So don’t give up if you are still wanting to go to the show. Keep checking the Beacon Web site.

We know many of you are wondering who will be at Jorma’s 70th Birthday Celebration. Well, let’s just say that most of the special guests have been revealed in your comments. Wink Wink!, Nudge Nudge! However, there is one special artist we want to acknowledge. We are very pleased to have the always exciting Bob Steeler join us Friday night. (12/3) I don’t know what we will be playing, but I’m sure it will be LOUD, FAST and ROCKING! Makes the hair on my neck stand up thinking about it.

What would you like to hear at the show? Some of you have listed your favorite songs, but we want to know more. What are your favorites? What would be your dream set?

More to come!

Peace

And Loving It!!

We are doing s short fall tour through the West Coast and Alaska. With our first stop at the Uptown Theater in beautiful Napa Valley. The 7 Walkers with Bill Kreutzmann will sharing the bill. It should be a rocking affair.

On Saturday we head down to San Francisco, to Golden Gate Park for a gig at the Hardly Bluegrass Festival, which is celebrating it’s Tenth Anniversary. Congratulations Everyone! Hardly Bluegrass is wonderful festival with something for everyone. Just check out the line up for the weekend. And did we mention that it is a free show. Oh yeah, take the family! This the first time Electric Hot Tuna has played the festival. We can’t wait to turn it up and Rock the Park!

Then we move up the coast for shows in Crystal Bay, NV, Portland, OR, Seattle, WA, Anchorage, AK and Englewood, CO

Come out and catch a show! Hope to see you there. More to come.

Word has it that the tickets for the Beacon Shows are moving quickly and that the Saturday night (12/4) show is nearly sold out! Wow! We are blown away! And very Grateful, thank you.

So to help out the cause, the Fur Peace Ranch is releasing the remaining tickets that it had reserved in advance. The bad part is, you will have to sit with all the Fur Peace Fanatics. So be prepared to talk about guitars all night long. :)

Visit the Fur Peace Company Store for more details. More to come.
