Members of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Grammy recipients Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, were at the forefront of popular rock and roll, founders of the San Francisco sound and progenitors of Psychedelic Rock. For over 50 years they have continued to play dynamic original music as Hot Tuna! The dynamics of their music feels alive in the present and alive on a continuum from the moment the music percolates in their minds to the time it explodes into the theatre. When Acoustic, the duo seems to speak a language of their own at once  both intimate and forthright. When joined by the dynamic, three-time Grammy winner, drummer Justin Guip, Electric Hot Tuna is major force. Imagine something bigger and and more dynamic than the obvious, Hot Tuna in concert!

“It’s unfathomable how Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady make each show its own experience, but they do … and effortlessly! Guitarist Jorma Kaukonen and bassist Jack Casady are without question among the greatest musicians ever; each has distinguished himself by developing a style that is easy to pick out and that others often try to imitate.”

“Jorma Kaukonen is a force in American music, equally adept at fingerpicked acoustic folk and blues as he is at wailing on an electric.” – Acoustic Guitar 

Jorma Kaukonen is a music legend and one of the finest singer-songwriters in his field. He tours the world bringing his unique styling to old blues tunes while presenting new songs of weight and dimension. His secret is in playing spontaneous and unfiltered music, with an individual expression of personality.

“The main issue is: I love to play the bass guitar,” says Jack Casady. “The craftwork in really learning the subtleties of the instrument is a lifelong project.”

Jack Casady’s full driving tone and innovative melodic bass work has defined the role of bass guitar in Rock and Roll for decades. With sweeping chords and stormy melodic lines Jack’s bass distinguished not only Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna but also a variety of side projects and recordings.
