Hot Tuna returns to The Beacon Theatre in New York City for their annual electric shows, Friday, November 30th and Saturday, December 1st. Past years performances have been off the hook with the addition of special guests since we celebrated Jorma’s 70th Birthday. This year is shaping up to be a hum-dinger! Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams will be there as they have for the past few years.Bill Kirchen, Steve Kimock and G.E. Smith will also make a return performance to these annual gigs. Cindy Cashdollar, who hasn’t played with Jorma much since the Blue Country Heart days will be on hand for the weekend . . . there are sure to be some command performances from Jorma’s Grammy Nominated album from a decade ago. To round out the weekend, bluesman, Steady Rollin’ Bob Margolin will also be in the house to help you shake away any holiday blues you may have.
Since G.E. has been touring with Roger Waters all year on The Wall tour he wasn’t able to celebrate his 60th birthday (which was January 27th) until August! The show was rocking along and then Roger Waters surprised everyone with a toast to G.E. and then sat in on a song! It brought the evening up to a whole other level. Luckily, Rod Richardson was there to film the excitement and Robert D. Combs was there to photograph every moment!
