I guess my first post didn’t make it. What I was trying to say was that my first HT show was in 1976 in Cherry Hill, NJ and that I have seen Jorma and Jack and the JA and Kaukorano and various incarnations at least 25 times, and this J&J show was one of the best. Not sure what the technical difficulties discussion has been all about… didn’t get in the way of the music which was fabulous, and keeps getting better.
Sounds like a great night. One of my all-time faves with a twist was at The Tabernacle in Mt. Tabor, NJ. We not only got really great music from Jorma and Jack – we also got an awesome audience vocal on “White Rabbit.” Pete Seeger had nothing on Jorma.
Jack – Thanks for making the trek to Ohio. You made my day. Seeing Jack and Jorma once again in sunshine and shades was very refreshing. Haven’t seen Hot Tuna live in over 2 years. Great concert last night. See you guys next week and then live in Huntington NY this summer. Can’t wait!
Great to hear HT #1
On the stage out in the sun
Telling stories on the wind
To the bees and buzzards too
And, from a reading on this Fiftieth morning…
“ From a strictly practical point of view, Shavuot was a very good time for the Holy Spirit to come down and inspire the Apostles to preach to all nations because, being a pilgrimage festival, it was an occasion when Jerusalem was filled with pilgrims from many countries.”
Do you guys remember a Hot Tuna show at Choate, a private school in Connecticut, in 1989? I was in the audience there. Almost all of the high schoolers left at the intermission, and you guys ended up playing an epic private second set for 7 or 8 folks sitting crosslegged in front of the stage on the gymnasium floor.
It was awesome–one of my all time favorite concerts.
