Better Late Than Never

February 29th, 2012 Jorma Leave a comment Go to comments

Night before last, we played the Ram’s Head in Annapolis. Why did it take so long to get this set list post up? I’ll tell you why. My son Zach goes to school in Arlington, Virginia and I had a day of meetings yesterday with him and his teachers. We didn’t get back to the hotel until late and well… first things first. It’s all well and good though… he’s doing fine… and, he’s taller than me now. Good grief. Anyway, here is our set list from the wondrous Ram’s Head the other night:

    Zach taller than you? Wow! You’ve never been exactly short of stature.

    Were any of those teachers excited to be conferencing with a psychedelic rock and roll legend, and a dad?

    Must definitely adjourn that blessing of a photo! You have grown beyond the commensurable i have grown smaller and Zach pops out of the frame by the hour. Zach’s roaarin’ lough!!
    Strong & staunch set list, as they report Jorma’s Capital Music pours over the scene Tuna Tunes like never before making of Hot Tuna the leading band ever, way in front. Mind you: over 200 gigs per year, stellar Concertos, every day it is Jorma’s Steady Rock in the air, round and off the clock. Can’t reasonably beat that, the most beautiful music created since the man, playing now live, a good thousand of different wonderful songs altogether masterfully played , sang and written by Captain Kaukonen all around the ole globe the year round. If numbers count, and gee if they do count, these are numbers.
    I hate to be square, when You are here I’ll be squire.
    Great darting music in North America brought around by Jorma and Jack and Barry in these accelerated days, squeeze in, venues are up to the brim.

    Hot Tuna is the best bet for all generations!

    Safe Journey

    Always Thanks Jorma!

    Jorma,
    I really want to thank you for playing Embryonic Journey. I am not old enough to have seen you play with Jefferson Airplane but that song is part of the sound track of my life. I saw Keith Emerson and Greg Lake at Ram’s Head. One of the comments Greg made it is really difficult when you have such a large catalog to put a show together because you are always leaving out some one’s favorite. Anyway thanks again – listening to the CD is no comparison to hearing it live! Thanks again.
