On Saturday, October 14, a loving and celebratory, 200-guest Station Hall audience at Jorma Kaukonen’s famous eastern Ohio guitar camp, Fur Peace Ranch, cheered on the guitar legend and his Hot Tuna bandmates Jack Casady and Justin Guip through a passionate, late-afternoon concert of electric blues, ballads and tougher stuff.

One excitable guest in the audience at this special weekend show – which came one week past the last date of the original end-date for the Electric Hot Tuna’s career-capping, 2023 Going Fishing tour – was not exactly a heckler. But still, from the back of the hall, he had burst out during a quiet moment midway through the nearly three-hour concert with a spontaneous, head-turning song suggestion.
