Article Contributed by Cash Edwards M… | Published on Tuesday, June 11, 2024

With continual creativity and finesse, Acoustic Hot Tuna sets out touring across the United States this July, August, and September. Masters in their field, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady's joy in playing unfiltered riffs, swapping notes and smiles, has delighted them and thrilled their audiences for seven decades!

Hot Tuna has brought a wealth of emotions to their music through deep perceptions and tremendous talent. Members of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Grammy recipients, they are always injecting fresh energy into their sound with constant improvisation, taking their musical horizons further. Every note is a unique expression of that very moment!

"Jorma Kaukonen's dexterity runs circles around most players … His material stands the test of time in a way that most others will not.” – Billboard

“A forerunner for today’s entire jam band scene and his nimble fingerpicking has equaled and, I dare say, improved upon the template laid down by Rev. Gary Davis. He has a warm expressive voice, like an old friend returning…he’s an American Treasure, singing and playing still at the very top of his game.” - Goldmine

“Focus on the things you love, listen with an open heart, and the music will speak for itself!” - Jorma Kaukonen

"Jack Casady is virtually unparalleled–and yet he has one of the most truly unique electric-bass voices in rock…he can melt into a supportive role but when opportunity knocks, he bursts forth with creative lines–both simple and ornate–that are unlike any you’ve heard” – Premier Guitar

"For about 45 years, Casady has been regarded as one of rock's greatest bassists, certainly one of its most original." – Vintage Guitar

“Playing thrills me now more than ever,” – legendary bass player, Jack Casady.

Hot Tuna, with Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, perform with a well-honed and solid power – always in the groove from their years of experience and friendship.
