A living legend in American music, psychedelic blues rock band Hot Tuna will perform live at The Wilma on September 11, 2019.
RSVP to the Facebook event
Guitarist/vocalist Jorma Kaukonen and bassist Jack Casady started Hot Tuna in 1969 as a side project of the influential 60s rock outfit Jefferson Airplane.
They released their self titled album in 1970 and have since recorded more than 10 albums. Hot Tuna has played, toured, and recorded some of the best and most memorable acoustic and electric music ever.
“Hot Tuna is a Psychedelic-Blues Institution” – Rolling Stone Magazine
From their days playing together as teenagers in the Washington, DC area, through years of inventive psychedelic 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 and Jack were honored with Lifetime Achievement Awards.
“For a band that traces its roots back to 1969, Hot Tuna can still bring the heat. Not only did they tackle songs from their wide catalog and long career, but they also showed the audience that they still have fun doing it. Jack Casady stomped around the stage totting a bass that is about the same size as him while Jorma Kaukonen lit a fuse and transformed his guitar into a firework.” – Live For Live Music
