    Hey There! As far as I’m concerned, you have “FREE REIN” over what you want to play. Can’t wait for tonight at Bergan PAC. Get off work at 4pm and 80 miles and a couple craft beers later at a local pub,(any recommendations?), it will be Hot Tuna Time. Blew me away last summer with “Morning Interrupted” in Ocean City, and 2 years ago At Wellmont with “If This Is Love…”. Sometimes you just want to relive the past. Don’t over eat before you play. Your Pal

    If Larry shows up with his violin Saturday in New Jersey I’d sure like to hear String Jet Rock. ‘Nuf said.

    Should be a really great four nights of Electric HT and Leon. See you all at the shows. JK feel free to break out Great Divide or In the Kingdom if the feeling is there. Enjoy….

    Man, those combined set lists are super. A bunch of my favorite songs in a row! The original acoustic Hot Tuna ! What a treat!
    I’m sorry to say that I’ll be missing all of this years summer tour. It truly pains me deeply. My only hope is to leave my dentist apt. today @ 5:00 or so, and get on a train to Port Chester without a ticket. Stranger things have happened. That would be what they call an impulse buy. Along with some other -ahem- things, I am powerless when it comes to Hot Tuna. We shall see.
    Love you guys.
    Safe travels and rock on Jack & Jorma.

    Now I have seen everything. A banner welcoming Hot Tuna to town. In my 30 years of following HT I have never seen a banner advertising your appearance. Really nice Guys – you deserve it.

    Looking forward to these electric dates is what helped me get through this past winter. I recall that Hot Tuna melted the “Polar Vortex” and for these electric shows they are sure to raise the temperature in an already wilting Northeast.

    Hello Jorma , Am looking forward to seeing you and the gang Friday night in Westbury ! Having a Mutual friend ( William W . ) , I am happy to say that I find you to be a power of example to me and I always bring someone that has never witnessed a Hot Tuna show . You have never failed to please my company and myself ! Thank you and your crew for many years of enjoyment . A special hello to Jack ! Saw you guys for the first time in 76 at the NY Academy of Music . Witnessed Jack playing and started playing myself in 77 . Still got a long way to go !! LOL Have a great day !!!!

    Just spent a week up in the Catskills – it was hot during the day and really nice and cool at nite. Saw baby deer and baby turkeys w/ their mothers – so cool. June is that time of the year. Can’t wait to see Tuna this Friday!

    Hey Jorma,
    Just read Jason Newman’s wonderful article, The Untold and Deeply Stoned Story… in this week’s RS about the Mt Tam Festival in Marin. Did you really walk up the hill? How did you not catch a ride? I take that route quite a bit to Stinson and it’s a haul, especially on foot.
    I’m impressed!

    Jorma and Jack…

    Thanks for good work/nice set last night. That was the first show I have seen in over 20 years and it is nice to see you both still have the chops…just better!

    I thought for sure you would leave time to bike up to Laconia…but, alas, no…

    Safe travels for the rest of the tour.
