I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Electric Hot Tuna Tour w/ special guest Steve Kimock

    Electric Hot Tuna's music is unique, an expression of Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady's individual personalities who forge their improvisational sounds with a feeling of significance into a dynamic event. Their electric sound is complete with the addition of drummer Justin Guip,* whose "emphatic yet fluid timekeeping is a true complement." Starting August 25, Steve Kimock, the blazing psychedelic guitarist versatile enough to touch almost all aspects of American music, will join Hot Tuna on tour.

      "With Steve Kimock on board for this Hot Tuna Tour you can count on a multidimensional dialogue between musical friends. There’s never a dull moment when Steve is part of the conversation!" says Jorma.

      Started as a side project during Jefferson Airplane days, the constant, the very definition, of Hot Tuna has always been Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady. From the ‘Sixties Evolution to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the two boyhood pals have never wavered in one of the most enduring friendships in Rock history. (

      "For a band that traces its roots back to 1969, Hot Tuna can still bring the heat... Jack Casady stomped around the stage totting a bass that is about the same size as him while Jorma Kaukonen lit a fuse and transformed his electric guitar into a firework.” – Live For Live Music 

     Dubbed “The Guitar Monk” by Relix magazine, Steve Kimock is driven by the knowledge that there is always more. While one can say that his genre is rock, no one niche has ever confined him. From the 80's Jazz/Rock band Zero (regarded as one of the marquee Bay Area bands and architects of jam band genre), or the 90's KVHW through to his latest Steve Kimock recording Satellite City, he has explored various sounds and styles based on what’s moved him, whether it’s blues or jazz; funk or folk; psychedelic or boogie; gypsy or prog-rock; traditional American or world fusion. (

      "Musicianship, chemistry, history, Jack and Jorma are the real deal on every level. It’s an honor to hang with those guys and play that music," says Steve.

     "There are those who talk about writing books and those who actually do it," Kaukonen says in an official statement. "I guess this is my chance to jump from one camp to the other. My story is my story."  – Relix
     Many of the venues on this tour are offering a VIP Seating and Book Package.
