Next door to the gig is the Villa Lulu… a superb Italian Restaurant where Jack and Phil and I dined this evening.  I can’t recommend this place too highly. I ate there the last time I was in town. It was great then… it was great tonight.

Anyway.. onward.

    PLEASE record some of these shows for future release! Those of us who can’t make it to any of them will really appreciate it. Awesome setlists and everyone says you guys are really in the zone.

    You brought back some ’70s great memories of the 1st time I saw you at the Calderone Theater
    in Hempstead. 50 years later and new memories when I saw you Monday night.
    Well done. Look forward to maybe another acoustic date at The Narrows Center in Fall River.
    Love me some Tuna!

    Inventive playing indeed! Graceful at times, brawny at times – always provocative. Thanks for the I Don’t Wanna Go! Peace

    Sorry I posted this same comment on an earlier post of yours, but any chance you can squeeze in a Final Electric tour show in Portland Oregon? Portland ❤️ Hot Tuna!
