Final Hot Tuna Electric Run
Going Fishing Tour 2023
This will be Electric Hot Tuna’s farewell tour and the last chance to see this iconic blues rock band which was formed in 1969 by former Jefferson Airplane members Jorma Kaukonen (guitarist/vocals) and Jack Casady (bassist). They will be joined by drummer Justin Guip and special guest, renowned trumpeter Steven Bernstein. Although Hot Tuna has always been a fluid aggregation, with musicians coming and going over the years, the band’s center has always been Kaukonen and Casady’s ongoing collaboration. The two are lifelong friends, growing up together in Washington, D.C., and playing in the group the Triumphs. After high school, guitarist Kaukonen and his government-service parents relocated to the Philippines, but he returned to the U.S. in time for the advent of psychedelia, landing in San Francisco and co-founding the Airplane in 1965. Bassist Casady joined not long after, and together they helped lead the group to massive success during the late ’60s and also saw the creation of Hot Tuna. The final electric tour of this iconic band is indeed an historic music event.
