Hot Tuna @ Garde Arts Center Tickets
Dec 7 @ 8:00 pm
Hot Tuna @ Garde Arts Center | New London | Connecticut | United States

No one has more consistently led American music for the last 50 years than Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, the founders and continuing core members of Hot Tuna. Now these living legends, joined by Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams, will bring their bluesy fusion of rock and free rhythmic techniques to our stage.

Hot Tuna – Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady – started as a side project during their Jefferson Airplane days. The two boyhood pals have never wavered in one of the most enduring friendships in rock history.

From their days playing together as teenagers in the Washington, DC area, through years of inventive rock in San Francisco (1996 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees), to their current acoustic and electric blues sound, no one has more consistently led American music for the last 50 years than Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady. At the 2016 Grammys, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady were honored with Lifetime Achievement Awards.

Guitarist and vocalist, Jorma Kaukonen is a highly respected interpreter of roots music, blues, Americana, and popular rock-and-roll. Jorma’s repertoire goes far beyond psychedelic rock; he is a music legend and one of the finest singer-songwriters in music. Jorma tours the world bringing his unique styling to old blues while writing new songs of weight and dimension.

One of the most unique innovators in the sixty-year history of the bass guitar, Jack Casady made his sweeping melodic mark helping to create the “San Francisco Sound” with legendary rock group Jefferson Airplane. Jack went on to track with Jimi Hendrix, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Warren Zevon, members of the Grateful Dead, John Lee Hooker, and Gov’t Mule. Casady, regarded as one of rock’s greatest bassists, is certainly one of its most original.
