Hot Tuna

Symphonic finesse and elegance was the theme on December 30 when Acoustic Hot Tuna, aka Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, concluded a three-night residency at the intimate Freight & Salvage Coffee House in Berkeley, California. The enduring duo entertained the crowd with two sets of acoustic blues, roots, and spiritual music – much of it dating to pre-World War II – that was both complex and easy on the ears.

Hot Tuna at the Capitol Theatre, December 4th, 2021, this is the second rescheduled date for a performance that was originally set to be played in July 2020. Now it's a year and a half later and that's a lot of time for anticipation. Almost like my first concert, I still get the pre-show jitters. We've seen this band dozens of times, add in the fifty plus free Quarantine Concerts live from the Fur Peace Ranch and there has been a lot of great music to enjoy.

It turns out that Feat Fans were as excited about the return of Little Feat as the band members.  After the warm reception they gave the “By Request Tour” in November, we added more shows in the South in January, leading to Feat Camp in Jamaica.  Then we announced the “Waiting for Columbus Tour,” which will start March 4th in Columbus, Ohio.  And that was clearly not enough.

So put on your dancing shoes, because Feat is adding more shows.

In the coming months Hot Tuna will be joined by David Bromberg Quintet, Steve Kimock & Friends, The Midnight Ramble Band and Little Feat! Check out the schedule below!
