The good old Boulder Theater

The good old Boulder Theater

Saturday night the Hot Tuna gang headed out to Boulder to play the Blues And Roots Summit at the Boulder Theater. We were blessed to have our good friend Steve Kimock on board for our whole show. Steve is an honorary Hot Tuna member and he’s welcome to play with us any time he wants to.

Before our set Ben Manilla did a meet and greet for the Bluesmobile Radio Show. He channeled Elwood as he always does, but that’s another story. Anyway, Ben presented Jack and myself with a lively lifetime achievement award for a life in the blues. Good stuff… really!

      Hi Bill… The Big Dog is just about to graduate from basic training… He’s not even going to need a halter. I’ve had many dogs over the years but Mav’ may be the best one yet. Needless to say, he and our seven year old daughter are the very best of friends! Woof…

    Both shows at City Winery are SOLD OUT but you could go anyway for a chance at tics at the door and tell them you will stand……sometimes that works. There also may be some cancellations. The Winery is a great venue and Jorma has played there before.

    I will do that. @Cyndy Consentino

    John B :
    The show on the 31st i know i can’t make because of work, the Saturday night show is a possibility.

    John-I am going on Saturday night, the first, with some tuna club friends.
    Winery is a really nice place! There may be tickets left. Let me know if you decide to go.

    I would rather go to Montclair and avoid the city if i can Cyndy . Are the Winery shows sold out as well ? Do you know anyone going ? I have never been to the Winery. @Cyndy Consentino

    I only had the pleasure to see Alvin and Ten Years After once and that was in Philadelphia many years ago . I remember how blown away we were by their performance. @chuck newman

    John- are you going to any of the City Winery shows?@John B

  11. Comment made on May 22, 2013 by chuck newman

    Yes Alvin Lee is gone and I think never got his due. Listening to his songs on “Pure Blues” was really something. I never doubted his passion and the song “Bluest Blues” is so emotional that it leaves me spent. Beautiful slide work on the first solo by George Harrison to boot.

  12. Comment made on May 22, 2013 by John B

    I just found out that Alvin Lee passed on back in March. Oy Vey .

  13. Comment made on May 22, 2013 by John B

    Jorma sold out for his show in Montclair NJ. I need one ticket . Will meet you at the show. When tix went on sale cash was short . Help!

    Tell Maverick I said “Woof!”….he’ll know what I mean

    ‘typosville’? You guys talk funny in the wherever it is we call the WV-Ohio border country! Loved seeing you and Steve in Bromberg’s house!

    steve: I can only go as far as saying it’s “slightly” humorous

    I fail to see any humor at all Steve. @Steve Levenson

    @doug mlyn
    Yup. And the grammarian in me wishes to tactfully report that “intact” is actually one word. I seem to be doing a good job of amusing myself today. I’m hoping at least one other person thinks this is humorous.

    @Jorma
    I know it was a typo. I’m a fan of bad puns. And like I said, I’m hardly what you’d call misteak free.

    Dear Jorma ,
    Can’t wait for upcoming shows in NY metro area, and my trip to the Ranch on 07/27/13.
    I hope I get to meet that cutie, Maverick!
    RIP, Ray Manzareck.

    Stay well,
    Cyndy

    Jorma…traveled from home in St. Louis to Boulder with my wife to celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary…THE reason for the trip was to see your show. Boulder was great…weather, food and drinks were all great…but the show…was absolutely superb! We had never seen you guys in concert, and after 40 something years listening to your tunes, it was magical to watch you perform live. Thank you for your masterful work and hoping you guys come through our neck of the woods. We have a great intimate venue in St. Louis, The Pageant…that would be perfect.

    Please hire someone to work on your tractor Jorma. Be careful around those things.

    @Steve Levenson
    good catch πŸ™‚ I guess I made a typo in my comment also… should have been right on the “head” instead of had. I guess the reviewer likes Acoustic Hot tuna more than Electric. I like em both and each entity brings something different to the table.

  25. Comment made on May 21, 2013 by Steve Levenson

    It was a nice review, but I’m puzzled by the “…..my favor falls with the ladder.” bit. You guys climbing around out there? πŸ™‚
    To the reviewer: Ok, I’ve never had a mistake free day, either.

  26. Comment made on May 21, 2013 by doug mlyn

    RIP Ray. I’ve always been a huge fan of the Doors.

    On another note, I read the review of the Boulder show on the Grateful Web, and the reviewer hit it right on the had. We are blessed to have Hot Tuna in tact and playing so marvelously. I know I feel blessed. That sounded like some show and I’m sure it was.

    Sadness abounds with the passing of Ray Manzarek, how the ages have passed, we never thought we’d get old and now here we are. I, for one, have watched too many relatives, friends, and so called heros of my youth become a memory. It’s time though to celebrate what we have lived and seen. In your post concerning recovery (25 years and counting for me) you mentioned your ability to type 100 words/minute without mistakes, a part of the evening news a Sunday was about the growing popularity of the resurgence of the typewriter.
    Concerning our pasts and sometimes wanting to privately come to terms of those dark spiraling falls into the dark depths of addiction, as some point prior to that we had a lot of fun living life to it’s fullest and drinking everything that was put infront of us. Those are are the memories we cherish. Most of us fall into the Bruce Springstein song “Glory Days.” A few years back my wife and I attended a Rick Wakeman one man show. He’d stand up and tell a few stories about personnal funny things in his life, then sit down and paly a couple of songs he did with Yes and Cat Stevens amoung others, then get up again and continue with the stories. Not only did we get to see a great pianist but we also left with tears in our eyes from some really hilarious stories he told.

    Glad you had a good time in Boulder with the Hot Tuna gang Jorma. I love those Flat Iron mounntains in Boulder. They are beautiful. Onward to New Jersey!

    Sounds like a time well had. Boulder is without a doubt a premier town. . Arts & Entertainment abound. Not to mention forward minded people. That set list is intense. I’m glad Steve Kimock has become somewhat of a fixture in the Tuna world. I was at the FPR show in Nov. 2010, and it was apparent to me, at least, that the chemistry just works.
    so…onward & upward! Safe travels Jorma.
