Hot Tuna’s founding members, who are also founding members of Jefferson Airplane, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Jack Casady and Jorma Kaukonen, will play their signature acoustic and electric blues at The Ridgefield Playhouse on Tuesday, January 7, at 8 p.m. Their musical odyssey includes the singles “Been So Long”, “Keep on Truckin’”, “Eve of Destruction” and many more iconic hits. Hot Tuna will no doubt include cuts from their latest CD Steady As She Goes, the first new album in twenty years from the legendary group. The band is celebrating more than four decades together, a milestone that demonstrates that Hot Tuna remains one of the most innovative bands in American music. This show is part of the Xfinity Rock Series with media sponsor WFUV 90.7fm.

Starting out in the 1970s with an eponymous live recording, Hot Tuna wowed fans with their volume, musicianship and stamina. They went on to record dozens of studio and live albums with a school of talented musicians including drummers, harmonica players, keyboardists, backup singers, violinists, mandolinists and more, all fitting in to Jorma and Jack’s musical spectrum. They’ve migrated to a focus on acoustic, which plays well in intimate venues like that of The Ridgefield Playhouse.

“Casady is virtually unparalleled–and yet he has one of the most truly unique electric-bass voices in rock…he can melt into a supportive role but when opportunity knocks, he bursts forth with creative lines–both simple and ornate–that are unlike any you’ve heard” – Greg Olwell, Premier Guitar

For tickets ($47.50) call the box office (203) 438-5795, or buy tickets online at ridgefieldplayhouse.org. The Ridgefield Playhouse is a not-for-profit performing arts center located at 80 East Ridge, parallel to Main St., Ridgefield, CT.
