Breaking all previous attendance records The Tedeschi-Trucks Band's third Wheels of Soul summer run has become more than just a fan favorite; it has become a highlight for the artists as well.

“Tedeschi Trucks is arguably one of the greatest band in the world today. It is an honor for me and my Hot Tuna brothers to be part of this great tour.” - Jorma Kaukonen.

Every show Hot Tuna (Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady and drummer Justin Guip) performs a different set, always unprecedented in mood and expressive in melody and rhythm ... excitement comes from never quite knowing what’s coming next.

Jack Casady is one of the most influential bassists of his generation.  He ranks among the Top 25 Bassists of all time says Bass Player Magazine and today his signature bass can be heard on tour with Paul McCartney, Jack White, the Stone Roses, and of course, Hot Tuna.
 

Hot Tuna, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, perform with a well-honed and solid power – always in the groove from their years of experience and mutual inspiration.  From their days playing together as teenagers in the Washington, DC area, through years of inventive Psychedelic rock in San Francisco (1996 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees, 2016 GRAMMY Lifetime Achievement Award Recipients), to their acoustic and electric blues sound, no one has more consistently led American music for the last 50 years than Jorma Ka

Hot Tuna, Jack Casady and Jorma Kaukonen perform with a well-honed and solid power, always in the groove from their years of experience and mutual inspiration. Much comes from their subtle sense of feeling, the nuances that make their playing continually dynamic whether as an acoustic duo or a vibrant electric band, adding drummer, Justin Guip.

For more than four decades, Hot Tuna, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, have played, toured, and recorded some of the best and most memorable acoustic and electric music ever.

Tedeschi Trucks Band has announced the third installment of their wildly popular Wheels of Soul Summer Tour. The 12-piece ensemble led by husband and wife Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks will be supported on all dates by longtime friends and collaborators Hot Tuna (Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady and drummer Justin Guip) and masters of soulful folk, The Wood Brothers. The tour is scheduled to hit many of the country’s premier outdoor venues on the most ambitious Wheels of Soul tour to date July 1 through 30, 2017.

They are heading west for the winter.

While art will always be a progressive process and reflect the changes of the people in our evolving world, some things are best kept preserved. Music is the perfect example of this. Progressive Rock, Jazz Fusion, Post Punk, New Wave, an echo of the culture and climate that influenced these musicians.
