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.

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.

Hot Tuna and Fur Peace Ranch are raffling off artwork, donated by Jorma Kaukonen from his own Grace Slick Collection, to help support the Appalachian Community Hospice & Visiting Nurses Association . Appalachian Community is a much needed and greatly underfunded healthcare resource for home bound individuals in Southeast Ohio. It is Southeast Ohio’s primary source of quality home care, striving to identify and fulfill the healthcare needs of our Appalachian community.

The artwork depicts Grace’s classic White Rabbit. The White Rabbit is emblematic of Grace Slick’s signature piece of music. It is approx 12 ‘’ x 17’’.  The Glossy Calendered Vinyl on canvas was processed on February 22, 2011. It is signed by Grace Slick

The band just wrapped up a long anticipated debut show in Israel.  It was a great gig. The Reading 3 Club, in Tel Aviv, is an intimate and cozy venue which makes it feel just like the Fur Peace Station. The crowd was great and everyone treated us with kindness. They even presented Jorma with a birthday cake! It was delicious! Thanks to all the people who helped put this gig together. It was very special.

Here’s what one reviewer had to say..

“When the band dove into the sublime classic instrumental “Water Song,” the club was transformed into a spiritual house of secular worship.”

You can check out the entire review here.

You can also read Jorma’s blog, Cracks In The Finish, for the set list and his trip to the Ancient City.

Check out this video from the show.

You can also check out some photos of the show here.

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.

WOW, what a great East Coast Tour this has been. The crowds have been large and enthusiastic. We love our fans, They have been there for us through good and bad, through thick and thin and we really appreciate that. Thanks to all of you who came out to see us and to the others who weren’t able to make it but support us in many other ways, we are very grateful. Thanks for the love.

We would also like to thank Steve Earle and his management. It has also been a wonderful experience sharing this tour with Steve and his band. Steve is an outstanding songwriter and musician, a true poet and social commentator in this world! We have had so much fun with Steve and his crew that we hope we can do this again sometime soon! Let us know what you think.

Still time to catch the last shows of the tour:

7/29/10 The Bears Den @ Seneca Niagara Niagara Falls, NY Electric Hot Tuna With GE Smith.

7/30/10 The Egg Albany, NY Electric Hot Tuna With GE Smith. Also Steve Earle.

7/31/10 House of Blues Boston, MA Electric Hot Tuna With GE Smith. Also Steve Earle.

Many of you have asked about getting downloads of these shows. Our archivist (Jason) has been on the road with us and hasn’t had time to organize or upload any shows lately. He promises he will start to roll them out as soon as possible when the tour is over. We will keep you posted as to the his progress. You can also go to iTunes and checkout some of the past shows

If you would like a copy of our Electric Hot Tuna Poster, you can go to the “Press” section of this page and download the PDF of the poster. Put it on a CD and take it to your nearest copy center and have them print you one! Don’t forget to mention it was done by our good friend Kevin Morgan.
