July 21st $30 GA Seating/$35 Reserved Seating From their days playing together as teenagers to their current acoustic and electric blues, probably no one has more consistently led American music for the last 50 years — yes! — than Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, the founders and continuing core members of Hot Tuna. The pair began playing together while growing up in the Washington D.C. area, where Jack’s father was a dentist and Jorma’s father a State Department official. Four years younger, Jack continued in junior high, then high school — while playing professional gigs as lead guitarist at night before he was old enough to drive — while Jorma (who had played rhythm guitar to Jack’s lead) started college in Ohio, accompanied his family overseas, then returned to college, this time in California. Along the way, Jorma became enamored of, then committed to, the finger-picking guitar style exemplified by the now-legendary Rev. Gary Davis. Jack, meanwhile, had taken an interest in the electric bass, at the time a controversial instrument in blues, jazz, and folk circles. ****Hot Tuna Special W/ Phat Thai **** Dinner for $22 Pre Fix Menu *MUST Make RESERVATIONS (970-963-7001 for Reservations) for this special prix fixe menu = any soup, snack, salad or small plate + any curry, noodle or large plate + a coupon for $7.00 off your your ticket to Hot Tuna!
