It was pointed out to me that I left out our Albuquerque gig… Mea Culpa. Lightning storms changed everything for all of us that night and here is what we did:

Hot Tuna 38, 2017
The Electric Trio
Jorma Kaukonen, Jack Casady
And Justin Guip
With Tedeschi/Trucks
& The Wood Brothers
Sandia Casino
Albuquerque, New Mexico
Thursday, July 27, 2017

Because of the storm warnings in the Albuquerque area Susan and Derek rearranged things thusly. Jack and I sat in on 3/5’s of a mile in 10 seconds and then Justin joined us as a trio and we played Can’t Get Satisfied and Come Back Baby. At the end of the evening we sat in on the encore for The Sky Is Crying…

We made it through the night. It looked dodgy for a while but the storms held off…

Only the strong survive…

    Regarding the AB clip, how did the band pull it off? The vocals are so clear–just like the studio version! And yet there are no mics! Maybe J. Edgar Hoover bugged the stage.

    Just found this article on NPR – good to know that still after all these years, The Airplane is still “news”! Really cool video clip of their American Bandstand performances of White Rabbit and Somebody to Love. Gotta love Jack’s answer to Dick Clark’s money question, but what was that stuff he was wearing around his neck and bass? Good times, m

    Hope you’re sitting back and relaxing after a spectacular tour. Betcha there were many highlights – St Elmos steakhouse in Indianapolis and playing Red Rocks etc etc.

    Thanks for stopping in St. Charles on your way home. Really enjoyed the show at Arcada.

    One of the original session players. Wonderful singer.

    I saw that documentary.
    I think I mentioned here, that his tv show was the first time that I saw Willie Nelson.
    The most sad thing isn’t just the way he passed, but the circumstances.
    (My dad wore out that LP and I dropped the needle on it. One of the very few LPs
    that dad replaced.)

    Jerry G. Gone 22 years today. You’re missed by millions. There’s a hole in my soul. RIP.

    Condolences to Glen and his family.

    There’s a great documentary made about Glen that came out about two years ago chronicling his Alzheimer’s .
    His show always had diverse and welcome talent on , John Hartford was a treat.
    He picked and grinned when Brian Wilson went to the sandbox , before they brought Bruce Johnson in as his permanent replacement.
    He’s still on the line.

    RIP Glen Campbell.
    I gave out good love vibes and wishes to him, here.
    At least one other commenter posted the same.

    Great set lists. Wonderful photos, Drone views from the sky above.
    Just get home safe, Jorma.
    And finish writing your autobiography. It will be the very best.

    Unfortunately can’t make the show in St. Charles tonight, but I do want to say how much I’m totally digging the live Hot Tuna show available on iTuna (iTunes) from the Aladdin Theater from February of this year. Its acoustic Jorma and Jack, sound is impeccable and its filled with great, inspired playing. Looking forward to something from this summer’s tour coming down the pike.
