Quarantine Concert #12 - Hot Tuna! Jack Casady has driven safely across the country and will join in the fun as Jorma Kaukonen holds his 12th FREE Quarantine Concert from the Fur Peace Ranch this coming Saturday, July 4 at 8 p.m. EDT. Due to the high-quality video setup at the Fur Peace Station concert hall and the excellent sound system these live-stream concerts are a delight to watch and a pleasure to hear!
Thanks to the coronavirus, concerts are on hold until further notice. We get it; but we don’t like it.
Artists and fans have been making the best of it, with bands using internet outposts to broadcast archival performances or set up live streams without audiences in attendance and with allowances for social distancing among the musicians.
The music is flowing, but the experience is suffering.
Hot Tuna continued their 50th-anniversary tour, which they began last year with a stop at the historic Lobero Theatre in Santa Barbara. The midweek show on February 19th featured an opening set by the iconic David Bromberg and his quartet. Both bands have made numerous appearances at the Lobero over the years, including past shows together, so it was no surprise that the event was a sellout.
Members of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Grammy recipients Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, were at the forefront of popular rock and roll, founders of the San Francisco sound and progenitors of Psychedelic Rock. For over 50 years they have continued to play dynamic original music as Hot Tuna! The dynamics of their music feels alive in the present and alive on a continuum from the moment the music percolates in their minds to the time it explodes into the theatre.
