Here's the blurb from the latest Fur Peace Ranch newsletter:
Looking down the road a fur peace….I’d like to take this opportunity to invite all of our Alumni and future students to celebrate Jorma’s 70th Birthday with us and Hot Tuna. Last year Hot Tuna decided to throw the ultimate party for Jorma’s 70th birthday, one that will mark over 50 years of performing for Jorma. On Dec. 3 and 4, 2010, Jorma will take the stage with his celebrated band Hot Tuna for an electric show at the Beacon Theatre.
You should prepare to be astounded, as a star-studded line-up of musicians and friends of Jorma’s have committed to help him commemorate the evening. In a career that has spanned over half a century, Jorma has played and collaborated with the best musicians around. For his 70th birthday celebration, these performers will join him on stage to help embrace the occasion, blend their camaraderie, and most importantly their music. Now here's were you come in.... as Alumni, we will be calling on you at some point in the night’s festivities to help us with a special surprise.
Hot Tuna is ecstatic to play with this “A-list” of special guests and you too would be foolish not to take in one or both nights. The guest appearances are quite different for each night but all Jack and Jorma are willing to say is that the music will cover their early years to the present with musicians from the folk, blues, songwriter, psychedelic, southern rock and contemporary world of music. Don’t miss these amazing 2 nights. Tickets go on sale September 11th at The Beacon Theatre website. See you there…..be ready to be called upon!
