    It looks like a tiger, and I want to hear it roars like one. So pretty, I hope there are many many years to come you’ll enjoy it. As always God bless Hot Tuna which is easier to say than to list all families / individuals involved. See you at the show.

    @Cyndy Consentino
    Brunswick was a tremendous show . Anyone that missed that one i feel bad for. I hear that Patchogue was just as intense and i would bet that tonite in Ocean City will be as well. I love Hot Tuna and as long as you guys can get out there and play for us i will be there as often as i can !

    Hey Jorma, tell us some road stories. The heat, the truckers, buses and what it is all about doing what you do up on the stage playing music to the crowds out there.

    I saw that him last night on long island – really close – 2nd row and I saw that, but I could not make it out either. Jack with a tattoo? BTW – the show was intense – blew me away. By the end of show I was in the 20th row!

    Just caught your show in Ocean City,NJ. Jack seemed to come alive tonight.Was hoping to see Jorma play his new guitar. Would love to see a remake of a Palladium late show,with the staff trying to get you guys off stage.
    Are you guys going to Jamaica again?

    Jorma, My friend Dave told me that guitar had two Single coil pick ups. They look really large, unlike Strat pick ups, are there other properties built into the pick ups to give it more bite? I’m guessing you would have a Hybrid Gibson/Strat custom built pick up, just a guess.
