The State In Ithaca

The late summer weather was still holding as Jack and I walked over to the State Theater. The crowd was a little light last night but they were totally with the program and in my opinion, Hot Tuna did not disappoint. We always bring our A game as best we can… and here it is:

    The wife & I will be heading North to the Beacon Sat. Rain gear will be in use. Then onto the Keswick the 28th. Which is our 38th wedding anniversary.

    Jorma. We drove to my brother’s home in Ithaca from Long Island and arrived at the State Theater and Electric Hot Tuna exceeded our expectations once again! Going to miss you three because although it was a final tour… the Electric Hot Tuna trio sounded better than ever! Thanks for all the memories!

    Great show in Ithaca! Friends with Kyle Siegrist but he lives in Columbus, OH while I live in Ithaca. I don’t get to shows much anymore but last night with Hot Tuna satisfied. Thanks! I really appreciated the guitar and bass work. Drums were right there to. Rock n roll.
