If You Build It, They Will Come…

if you build it

Indeed, Saturday night after sound check we came out of the Fur Peace Station and as we wandered down to the Beatrice Love Kitchen for a little dinner, as we looked up the road… this is what we saw. We hadn’t done an Acoustic Evening With Hot Tuna for some months, the CAMI tour notwithstanding, and at moments like this one always tends to think, ‘Will I remember all of this stuff?’ Well, remember it we did, and here is our set list:

Now I don’t know if it’s just like riding a bicycle… that you never forget, but lots of cool musical stuff evolved in the course of the evening. In short… we had a blast.

The classes at the ranch were no less exciting… Jack Casady, Myself, Barry Mitterhoff and David Wolff… the brains behind Breakdown Way… all of us had full classes with great students. Good stuff indeed!

All in all, a very fulfilling weekend.

I’m getting ready to go down to Florida for Wanee but more on that later. It’s time to catch up on a little sleep.

    I am so enjoying reading Jorma’s blog. Such thoughful and insightful words from one of my very favorite musicians. I feel like I know him more now, and in a more personal way than just listening to and enjoying his music. He writes like a college professor! Very articulate and a pleasure to read. Can’t wait to see him in Boulder this summer!
