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.

Hot Tuna returns to New York City for one unforgettable evening of hard driving blues and soulful Americana. This year the band will celebrate Jack Casady’s 70th Birthday and promises to pull out all the stops with a roaring electric set.
Joining Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady this year will be very special guest Marty Balin, a fellow Jefferson Airplane founding member. Also on tap are multi-instrumentalists Barry Mitterhoff and Larry Campbell, vocalist Teresa Williams, and drummer Justin Guip. Additional special guests will be announced in the coming months. The Beacon Theatre concerts have become an annual holiday tradition – a spontaneous, innovative, rock and roll extravaganza not to be missed.
Everyone on the Bus! Hot Tuna hits the road for a summer tour through the midwest. The last stop on the tour is Fur Peace Ranch for the Arts and Minds festival. Check out the dates and locations below. Also, a big announcement is coming at the end of the month about Hot Tuna’s annual New York City Beacon Theater Show! Be sure to be there!

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!

Give the Gift of Tuna this holiday season! Hot Tuna starts their winter tour on January 2, 2014 with a show at the Iron Horse Music Hall. What better way to start the new year! Hot Tuna is coming to a town near you! They play 29 shows! The winter tour starts in the northeast and winds its way south through Florida, Texas and Arizona before it shoots up the west coast making stops in California, Oregon and Washington State. That includes 2 shows at McCabe’s Guitar Shop, always a favorite spot to see Hot Tuna. Now that’s a lot of touring!
Special guests Leon Russell and David Lindley help open some of the shows. Be sure to check out the Sunshine Music and Blues Festival where Hot Tuna will share the stage with the Tedeschi Trucks Band and a host of others! Hope to see you at one of the shows.

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!
