    Thank you electric Hot Tuna for a super great night of music. Just exactly what the doctor ordered, what a fun time!
    I’m pretty sure you played “Talkin’ Bout You” after “Invitation.”
    I will miss the electric, but I am grateful there will be some acoustic. Safe travels.

    Great show. Great memories dating back to Wolsey Hall ‘68 and the Airplane, and so many dates in between. Amazing bass play from Jack, you both are amazingly dexterous still. Keep on truckin’ guys.

    I saw Tuna with Steve Bernstein at the Basie in red bank new jersey with my daughter and it was one of the best hot tuna electric shows that I had ever been too I’m 64 now and have been going since high school graduated in 77 first shows were at the capitol theater in Jersey. Can’t get to any final electric shows this time but hope you and Jack can find some time to put together another album thanks for all the years you and Jack have given everyone Do not Go Gentle

    Absolutely killed it in New Haven guys. Great show, set list and the playing was tight and clean and Jack’s bass was ever thunderous. Thank you for doing this last electric tour gave me a chance to bring my dad to a show and have a good time. Also thank you Steve for making the trip. Wasn’t sure at first but damn did you kill it. Any plans to release some recordings of shows if you guys are recording any?
