Coming Soon: An Evening With Hot Tuna!

Go see Hot Tuna!- for the Grateful Web

Few musicians living or dead have reached the sort of legendary status reached by Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, the founding members and heart and soul of Hot Tuna.  And if they have, they probably don't look so good doing it (think Keith Richards).  Friends and collaborators for over 50 years now, including a little thing in the 60's known as The Jefferson Airplane, Jorma and Jack have built between them the sort of musical symbiosis that most relationships don't last long enough to attain.

Jorma and Jack played music together as children, with Jack on lead guitar and Jorma on rhythm.  Even after being separated by miles and circumstances early in adulthood, Jorma and Jack reunited to play together, each dabbling in new instruments and styles. Jack Casady started playing electric bass at a time when it was unpopular to do so, and Jorma Kaukonen honed his skills with elaborate finger-picking.  In the mid 60's they joined a band forming in San Francisco, and thus was born The Jefferson Airplane.  Jorma and Jack continued to work on their own side project, which became Hot Tuna sometime after their first album was recorded.  Known at one time in their careers for playing three to six hour sets, uninterrupted, Hot Tuna has had huge success as both a large, loud and electric act, and as an acoustic duo.  This side project has been going strong for more than 35 years.

On Thursday, May 8th, Hot Tuna will be stopping by the Fox Theatre in Boulder, Colorado, with shows in Apsen and Denver on the 9th and 10th.  These special acoustic and electric shows are not to be missed, and its only every so often that one gets to find one's self in the presence of living legends.  And it won't even cost an arm or a leg (think Keith Richards again)!  Regarded by many as some of the best guitar and bass players in existence, Jorma and Jack are certain to rock you until your ears hurt, but it might be one of the best hurts you'll ever have.

Oh, and it probably won't last six hours. Probably.

Keller Williams New Album 'Dream,' Coming Soon

Keller Williams- for the Grateful Web

When singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Keller Williams scratched out a long and ambitious wish list of artists he'd like to collaborate with in the studio, he told himself "It can't hurt to dream." Today, with the release of his ninth studio album, Keller's dream comes true. For the release the usually one-man-band is backed by a dream team of musicians including Béla Fleck, Bobby Read, Bob Weir, Charlie Hunter, Derrek Phillips, Fareed Haque, Fleming McWilliams, Jeff Sipe, John Molo, John Scofield, Martin Sexton, Michael Franti, Modereko, Samir Chatterjee, Sanjay Mishra, Steve Kimock, The String Cheese Incident, and Victor Wooten. dream features 16 tracks of unblemished material: a cataract of electrifying musical alliances, and endless entertainment thanks to Keller's rapturous innovations and his earthy, barefoot-in-the-park presentation. Look for dream to be released February 6. 2007 on SCI Fidelity Records.

Keller Williams is a one-man band for the digital age. Using innovative looping technology and innate musical genius, Keller's live solo performances pack more music on one stage than a full fledge rock ensemble might. His inspired live shows sell out from coast to coast.
