Hot Tuna, Jack Casady and Jorma Kaukonen (photo above) perform with a well-honed and solid power, always in the groove from their years of experience and mutual inspiration. Much comes from their subtle sense of feeling, the nuances that make their playing continually dynamic whether as an acoustic duo or a vibrant electric band, adding drummer, Justin Guip. They are heading west for the winter.
From their days playing together as teenagers, through their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for Jefferson Airplane, to their current rock and blues sound, 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.
At the 2016 Grammys, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, and all the founding members of Jefferson Airplane, were honored with Lifetime Achievement Grammys.
