Just caught Hot Tuna live at the Beacon Theatre in NYC. They are still rockin'!! After playing acoustic for a number of years Jorma and Jack are back to electric. With Barry Mitterhoff on electric mandolins (which have to be heard to be believed) and new drummer Eric Diaz they proved that they still had it. During the electric set the crowd spent most of it's time on their feet After hearing so may older (and some not-so-older) musicians content to rest on their laurels and play watered down versions of their songs it was an incredible pleasure to hear Jorma and Jack still pushing the musical bounds.
For Jorma's take on things you can check out his diary at
