Hot Tuna

Electric Hot Tuna's music is unique, an expression of Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady's individual personalities who forge their improvisational sounds with a feeling of significance into a dynamic event. Their electric sound is complete with the addition of drummer Justin Guip,* whose "emphatic yet fluid timekeeping is a true complement." Starting August 25, Steve Kimock, the blazing psychedelic guitarist versatile enough to touch almost all aspects of American music, will join Hot Tuna on tour.

Ask you mothers and wives along to roam the forest, walk the labyrinth, explore the Psylodelic Museum or simply relax in the warm spring air in Southeast Ohio. It’s a beautiful time of year at the Fur Peace Ranch! Or…. send them to a spa and come to the Fur Peace Ranch May 11-14. It’s a musical adventure that includes the whole family or not!

Always in the groove from their years of experience and mutual inspiration. Hot Tuna will be on tour and teaching at the Fur Peace Ranch this Winter and Spring.

Started as a side project during Jefferson Airplane days, the constant, the very definition of Hot Tuna, has always been Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady. From the ‘Sixties Evolution to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the two boyhood pals have never wavered in one of the most enduring friendships in Rock history.

Conceived in 1989 by Jorma & Vanessa Kaukonen, 2018 will bring renowned musicians, who will both teach and perform, to the Fur Peace Ranch. The musical workshops are accentuated by the beautiful grounds of the Fur Peace Ranch, the fresh, delectable meals, and the awesome history museum, the Psylodelic Gallery.
