For Your Information: NYC, Close to Sold Out!

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 to Play Filmore for SEVA Benefit

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.

The year-end Hot Tuna shows at the Fur Peace Ranch have been sold out for months, but that doesn’t mean you have to wait for 2014 to see them again. A new set of dates have just been announced. So just after a beautiful fall in Southern Ohio at Fur Peace Ranch Workshops, and a quick trip to Finland, Hot Tuna is unofficially on “The Holidays Tour.” It starts on with two shows in NYC and then swings through New England ending in the Midwest in Chicago.

Hot Tuna’s Annual New York City Celebration Features both An Acoustic and An Electric Night The legendary Hot Tuna returns to New York City for two unforgettable evenings of hard driving blues and soulful Americana. This year, the band will kick off with an intimate acoustic evening at The Concert Hall at New York Society for Ethical Culture on Friday, November 22 followed by a rockin’ roaring electric show at the Beacon Theatre on Saturday, November 23rd. Tuna’s Beacon shows have become an annual holiday tradition – a spontaneous, innovative musical journey not to be missed! Tickets: BeaconTheatre.com or 866-858-0008

Jorma’s 70th Birthday Bash at the Beacon Theater in NYC on December 3 & 4, 2010 was a very special night, if not a historic one. Electric Hot Tuna and Friends lit up both nights with straight on rock and roll. It was a celebration of Jorma’s Birthday for sure, but it was also a celebration of a lifetime of friendships and musical camaraderie.  The night was captured on video by a small crew with hand held cameras. Shot in standard definition, the video was strictly meant for personal archival footage. But the concert was so good and music so great that everyone decided it needed to be released. So here you go! The DVD is a collection of selected songs from both nights of Jorma’s Birthday at the Beacon Theatre in NYC, December 3 & 4, 2010.
Enjoy!

Thanks Everyone for your support in this project. Special Thanks to Jorma, Jack and Vanessa for making it happen! And to you our fans, with all our love!

Thanks to everyone at Jamband News, especially Bill Whiting, for selecting Steady As She Goes as on the of the Top 10 Albums of 2011. We greatly appreciate all the love and respect. Right Back at You! And Thanks to all our friends, fans and supporters for making 2011 a fantastic year! See you in 2012!

Here are the Jamband News Top Ten Albums of 2011

10. Warren Haynes, Man in Motion Stax- I listened to this one on several road trips, going from festival to concert, and it never got old. Rock, gospel, jam, soul and blues combine for a top notch combination as done by the hardest working man in the business, Warren Haynes.
9. Hot Tuna, Steady As She Goes, Red House- Hot Tuna gets back to basics with winning results. Kaukonen and Casady at their very best make this one a must own.
8. Amos Lee, Mission Bell Blue Note Records- Amos Lee opens up his songwriting talent on radio friendly tracks like “Windows Are Rolled Down” and “El Camino.” A Keeper.
7. Lucinda Williams, Blessed Lost Highway- Lucinda Williams sets the standard once again with brilliant compositional depth on rewarding numbers such as “Buttercup,” “Born to Be Loved,” and “Kiss Like Your Kiss.” One of the best albums of this and/or any year.
6. Preservation Hall Jazz Band and The Del McCoury Band, American Legacies MCCOURY Music- This is a once in a lifetime collaboration hybrid that is simply stunning to sit and listen to. Highly recommended.
5. The Joy Formidable, The Big Roar Atlantic- The sleeper hit of the year, it gets better over time. Pounding big rock melodies and hooks that grab and take hold of the imagination. Songs like “Whirring,” “A Heavy Abacus” and “Austere” foretell a bright future for this young band.
4. Tedeschi Trucks Band, Revelator Sony Legacy- Soul, Gospel and Blues collide into one big happy family on “Midnight in Harlem” and “Love Has Something Else To Say.” And, the rest of the world is better because of it.
3. My Morning Jacket, Circuital ATO Records/Red- Louisville, KY’s finest serve up tasty helpings of the year’s finest ear candy on the memorable rock and rhythm laced monsters “Victory Dance,” “Wonderful” and “Holdin’ On to Black Metal.” ‘Nuff Said.
2. Wilco, The Whole Love Anti- Probably the most efficient statement Jeff Tweedy has produced in some time, and likely the most accessible and universal. A true high point for the group and an uncommonly influential disc for aspiring composers and musicians alike.
1. Over The Rhine, The Long Surrender Great Speckled Dog- The masterpiece of the year. Elegant, sleek and sensual, this recording is pieced together with great care and brings out the best performances of the year from Karin Bergquist and Linford Detweiler on the shining gems, “Undamned (with Lucinda Williams),” “Rave On,” and “All My Favorite People.” 2011′s crown jewel.

Thanks  to Kevin Morgan at KMS for the outstanding cover art! He’s the best!
