    Jorma simply great to see you guys at Vinoy Park. I have not seen an acoustic show in probably 10 years or more as I am “highly electric” in my old age. It really was a great wee set and I damn sure look forward to seeing you again acoustically in the not to distant future….keep on keepin’ on!!!!

    To desktop Jorma’s liquid backstage is to give us a lot a that. And mildly brushes away the dim off the soul’s windshield. Immediate pics and now the ‘Concert in the vortex’ hot on itunes do the service. What else in this life. We know that a couple of common words make Jorma smile: “Sold out” and “More” and so it happens each day.
    Yes Jorma yes party.
    Steady As She Goes Jorma!

    Just saw that some electric shows have been added. YEAH!!!
    Unfortunately, the Hot Tuna Artist Arena ticket website has NO tickets for ANY performances acoustic or electric. Must be something wrong there. Hoping the problem it can get resolved very soon.

    a little off the subject.. Just downloaded the NYC acoustic show from 11/22/13, which I had the great pleasure of attending. Barroom Crystal Ball is so sweet sounding with Theresa on vocals and Larry on Pedal steel, WOW! I’ve already listened to it five times and gives me lots of goose bumps. The whole show is great! including the crowd noises

    @joe in DC
    so I clicked the link on Jorma’s tour page, and it brought me to the bergen pac web site which says June 21, and there is a box that says on sale soon, when I click that it brings to a ticketmaster page that says 6/21. Also there is an events/calendar link which also says June 21.

    It was so nice to have you down here in so-so sunny FL. Show was great as usual. The off and on chill/sun/sprinkles turned to bright sunshine as the three amigos took the stage, mother nature is surely a Hot Tuna fan. Hope your stay was pleasant and gave you a bit of relief from the weather in the rest of this beautiful country. Please come back soon.

    In Dallas looking forward to show. I’ve been able to make at least one HT or JK solo shows for each of the past 5 or 6 yrs. great to see you guys in the flyover region. Also wanting to get back to fpr this fall. Need to check on that

    Jorma,
    I just received the announcement from the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY for the Electric Hot Tuna show “with Leon Russell” this coming summer. I would suggest to avoid the confusion that the previous person pointed out about whether or not Hot Tuna would play two sets or play together with Leon Russell, there should be some clarification on the website and the illustration marquee advertisement.
    Regards,
    Howard

    Hey Howard… all these shows are considered ‘co-bills,’ regardless of who goes n first or last. Leon and us (Tuna) each get 90 minutes. That’s how it goes…

    I’v always loved TUNA …since the show may 74 providence when a green BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN was a no show as opening act. al stewart did it.
    I Was at the last AIRPLANE SHOW IN 89…CT Lake Compounce?.. only 20 ppl in the audience.
    even i was ashamed at the promoters lack of promotion.
    anyway…hot tuna rolls on!
