I just saw Hot Tuna at the Gathering of the Vibes this past weekend, and they played some real cool acoustic blues music HESITATION BLUES, CANDYMAN, KEEP YOUR LAMP TRIMMED AND BURNING. Probably my favorite part of the weekend. And Jorma can sing the blues BETTER than the best of them!!!!

Anyone have memories of good Hot Tuna shows past or present?

They played a real nice set opening for the Brothers at Great Woods in 2000. Jorma and Jack -- a partnership as enduring as it is talented. I'll never get sick of The Water Song.

If you don't know Jorma, you don't know Jack !!

Burgers is one of my favorite all time albums and the Tuna lights up the Beacon every Thanksgiving weekend. I claim they are the most underrated band out there.

I've seen Jorma solo, Hot Tuna electric, and Hot Tuna acoustic. All great, even though I prefer electric Hot Tuna to acoustic.

One memorable Jorma show was in the mid 80's at a small club. I remember that there were some "tie dyed" young folks who came in and sat down on the floor directly in front of the stage before Jorma came out, even though there were tables and chairs available. The stage was only about 3-4 feet above the floor at best.

The owner didn't seem to mind, so my girlfriend and I decided to do the same. We managed to get a spot right in front of Jorma's guitar stool, so for the whole show I had a great view of Jorma's fingers on the fretboard. And it felt more like Jorma was playing in someone's living room for us than in a club. Jorma seemed to like having us there as he kept looking down at us and occasionally smiling as he played.

It was very cool......

One thing I admire most about Jorma is that his exploration acoustic blues goes far beyond the Mississipi Delta, e.g. the Carolinas, Texas, North Mississippi, etc.

Hot Tuna has gotten back into playing loud electric music. Tan Dan and I caught a killer acousttic and a heavy electric set in July at the Variety playhouse.

My friend and I drove up to the Dune Fest in Northern Michigan a few weeks ago. (9 hour drive) and saw Hot Tuna play an Electric set only that lasted 2 1/2 hours. We were blown away at Jack marching, jumping, and getting in Jorma's face will pounding his bass. Jorma has a Epiphone guitar and Wah Wah pedal that sounded killer. The Hot Tuna guys hired a drummer 3 years ago to do the electric sets. WOW did he drive the band hard. I always try to see Hot Tuna a few times a year when they come through the midwest. Always interesting to see these old guys turn up really loud and smile at each other. Jorma is 65 years old and Jack is 62 years old. They have played together almost continually since there High Schools days in DC. There is some fun, nutty chemistry with those 2 folks. They are having the times of ther lives.

First saw Hot Tuna in 72. The loudest show I ever saw was at Town Hall in NYC that year..Saw them a whole lot through the 70's. Best show for me was Stony Brook 5/8/74 acoustic just Jorma and Jack..Started seeing them again from the mid 90's on when they play acoustic music..The electric stuff got a bit too raunchy for my taste at this point...

Hot Tuna is one of my favorite bands, saw them a lot in the seventies at the Palladium & Capitol Theater. One of my great memories, must of been back I believe 1975 maybe 76, it was my birthday, Nov. 22th and I had tickets to the early and late shows at the Palladium, the early show I was on my own and had 2nd row center, the late show I met my friends and we had the first row in the balcony, it was a great night of music and good party at he Palladium, joints going around and I had drop a red tab earlier, Hot Tuna palyed 3 1/2 maybe 4 hr. late show. We walked out of there about 3:30-4:00 am, walking the streets of Manhatten and feeling great, we evenually did find our way home, Great birthday!!!

Been to about a dozen or so Hot Tuna shows since the early 90s, both electric and acoustic. Loved every one. I don't really have a preference, I love both forms. Going to see them at the Beacon on Nov. 25 and their gonna do both electric and acoustic. The best of both worlds in the best venue around. That Beacon Theatre really has a soul of its own. Hope to see you all there!!!!!

Peace !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Atlanta show that Jtuna and I saw earlier this summer.

They played tons of stuff that I didn't know, all the while Charlie is saying "Man, they haven't played this in years!!".

Great show, alas, not a taper in site!
