A Trip To Purchase, New York

We spent the night in New Haven and drove down and back to the gig at SUNY, Purchase. What a simply beautiful theater they had there… and there was laundry too… a complete night. Steve Earle’s set was killer as always and by the time he finished his great set, we were indeed ready to rock. In the dressing room was a gigantic pipe organ, real Phantom Of the Opera stuff. What a scene! Anyway, here is our set list:

Hot Tuna 15, 2010

    You guys were amazing last night at Purchase. SE and HT was a great inspired combination. My wife and I have seen both SE and HT several times over the years (she goes back to Airplane, Fillmore days) and this one was the best for both of you. She and I looked at each other after Steve’s set and just said ‘anything else is gravy’. So thanks (and GE Smith is an inspired addition – hope he sticks around a while).

    Keep rockin’!

    great, great show … everyone in the band was smiling and laughing from the beginning of the show all the way through. guess its more fun to play in an air-conditioned venue as opposed to a hot muggy night at the Stone Pony.
    thanks for a great show …

    We loved the opening show of the Electric tour in Westbury, NY. Been seeing various Tuna / JK incarnations since the 1970s’, but the current 5 piece band may be the hottest! This band should get into a recording studio and cut some tracks! Everyone at Westbury put out a lot of energy. Barry leading the double-time jam on “Rider”, GE and Jack rockin’ on “Eyesight To The Blind” and Skoota is a power house. Excellent feel on Tuna classics from “I See The Light”, to “99 Year” (the most explosive jam to only have 1 chord). Jorma, thanks for the encore of “Come Back Baby”. Everyone at Westbury went home happy (where they still talk about Commack days). In fact, the show was so good; I had to take the ride up to SUNY Purchase the following weekend. Thank goodness my wife “gets its”. Beautiful theatre, loved the variety, from “Water Song” to “Funky #7”. We look forward to the Birthday shows in December!
