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.

Now that Labor Day has passed Summer is moving along quickly. Soon the leaves will turn and we will be back on the road and back in the studio! We can’t wait. More on that at a later date though. In the meantime we wanted to share some bits of news and other announcements.

LATE BREAKING NEWS!!!

Tickets for the Electric Hot Tuna show at the Beacon Theater December 3-4, 2010 GO ON SALE FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 10, 2010!!

The Venue moved it up a day to a normal business day to accommodate customers. Spread the word.

We would like to thank Kevin Morgan Studio for helping us develop our new site. We really like the new format. We love the response from our fans too. We especially like the stories they share . Many of the comments bring back some great memories and really provide a nice perspective on the history of Hot Tuna, the places, the people, the venues, the songs and the love shared. Thanks for being there with us, It’s just incredible. Keep the stories coming.

The response to the NYC Beacon show has been overwhelming. All of your suggestions have been great and they are all under consideration. Of course getting any these artists together in one place is a Herculean task, especially since some have unfortunately passed away, but we will make some phone calls, emails or airmail and see if we can’t accommodate your requests. Just be sure to be there so you don’t miss a thing!

If you want to show your support for Jorma now, you can order the Official Jorma 70th Birthday T-shirt

The Rex Foundation has posted a nice follow up interview with Jorma. It is a nice lengthy article covering Jorma’s early years, the development of Fur Peace Ranch and the longstanding partnership between him and Jack Casady.

Here is an excerpt:

“People go, what are you going to do when the bubble bursts? I’ve kept in touch with a lot of my friends from school; Jack and I have had the same job longer than anybody we know. Everybody else has reinvented themselves more than once as times have changed, but we’re still doing the same thing we were doing in 1958. How ’bout that?”
