For the lovers of classic San Fran rock, echoes of history, and the spirit of giving, December 2nd, 2023 is a date to mark on your calendars. In a stirring tribute to a moment that shaped music history, Jack and Jorma will return to the Fillmore in San Francisco, the very stage where, 58 years prior, they ignited the audience as members of the Jefferson Airplane during Bill Graham's inaugural show.

Under the banner of Electric Hot Tuna, this December, the duo offers a heartfelt farewell to San Francisco with a final performance benefitting the Rex Foundation. The band, fresh from a year of enthralling fans across the nation, is set to deliver an intimate cabaret-style show that promises both nostalgia and the undying magic of live music.

The event will kick off with a lavish VIP reception. Guests can indulge in the culinary delights from the talented chefs at Italian Colors, all the way from Oakland’s Montclair district. Paired with the feast are exquisite wines from Silver Oak, Twomey, and Winery Sixteen 600, accompanied by a handpicked selection of local microbrews.

As the evening unfolds, attendees will be treated to a double-set retrospective of Electric Hot Tuna’s iconic music, with special guests adding to the grandeur of the evening. Furthermore, an auction boasting one-of-a-kind memorabilia awaits, ensuring guests return home with more than just cherished memories.

The Rex Foundation expresses its deepest gratitude to everyone who has shown unwavering support over the years. The foundation's December event is a significant part of its fundraising campaign, and the funds raised are channeled into the numerous grants it bestows. These grants, ever since the first benefit in 1984, resonate with the community's shared values and aspirations. Supporters are encouraged to explore the Rex Foundation website to witness the transformative power of their contributions since 1984.

Join us at the Fillmore on December 2nd, 2023, to be a part of a historic night and support a cause that echoes the spirit of our community. Let's celebrate music, memories, and the promise of a brighter future.
