Hot Tuna - 2015-11-20 Beacon Theatre, New York, NY (Live)

Hot Tuna - 2015-11-20 Beacon Theatre, New York, NY (Live) - 2016

On a pleasant Friday night in the fall, Hot Tuna celebrated Jorma Kaukonen's 75th birthday at the classic 3 - tiered Beacon Theater in New York City. The place was packed and there was a special buzz in the atmosphere. There were rumors floating around that there will be special guests to join Jorma and Jack (Casady) on stage, and they proved to be right on the mark. After an opening solo number by Jorma, classic blues artist John Hammond joined him on harmonica - along with Jack on bass - for a 3 song acoustic mini-set. It was really a nice start to the evening. Now it was time to plug in and pick up the pace, and for this they brought in drummer Justin Guip, who has collaborated extensively in the past with Levon Helm. They worked their way through a dynamic set that riled up the crowd. It eventually became evident that in the floor seats you were going to have to stand! Jorma showed off some really rocking lead solos on his Gibson Firebird guitar. Set two featured special guests Larry Campbell - a seasoned multi-instrumentalist who toured with Bob Dylan for many years - and his wife, singer Teresa Williams. Larry played an arsenal of instruments in the set including mandolin, fiddle, pedal steel, and guitar. Teresa's lovely voice was showcased in great versions of "Wade in the Water", "Big River", and many others. The encore was the classic "Sugaree" from the Grateful Dead songbook. The show sent everyone home satisfied and wishing they had tickets for Saturday night also.
