Hot Tuna To Go On Tour This Summer


Despite their beginning as a mere spin-off of psychedelic 60s band Jefferson Airplane by members Jack Casady and Jorma Kaukonen, the legendary blues rock American group Hot Tuna has worked on-and-off since 1969 to bring fans the best of both worlds in blues: spicy electric renditions and Americana-flavored acoustic versions. With the band’s last studio album, Steady As She Goes, released in 2011, Hot Tuna has been off the public radar for a little while.

Luckily for fans, though, this summer is going to be a blast with a Hot Tuna tour kicking off in June and July. For the second half of June and the first few weeks of July, Hot Tuna will be performing acoustically in Hawaii and the Northeast region and will be performing as Electric Hot Tuna for a few shows as well.

For more than four decades, the adored duo has successfully mixed Americana roots music with eclectic variations on blues and rock and roll. Catch Hot Tuna on tour here at these dates below:
