About Hot Tuna
They've been making music together for the better part of 50 years, but don't tell Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady that they're still flying under the radar. Fans around the world have known them as (and still can't get enough of) Hot Tuna.
The aforementioned duo began playing together while growing up in the Washington D.C. area. It led to the boys penciling in gigs before Jack was even old enough to drive. He showcased his skills as lead guitarist while Jorma played rhythm guitar. Though the pair went their separate ways, they would reconnect in the mid 1960s. That's when Jorma was asked to audition for a new band forming in San Francisco. He summoned his old friend Jack and the rest, as they say, was history.
Jorma and Jack became part of a group called Jefferson Airplane, but worked on sets of songs they would often play at clubs and other venues. Those cuts were loyal to the blues, jazz, bluegrass and folk influences felt by both men, and this led to a separate record deal for a band they decided to name Hot Tuna.
Now in its 45th year, the 'Jefferson Airplane spinoff' continues to play acoustic and electric versions of original and traditional blues songs. Hot Tuna has seen many musicians come and go over the year, but has essentially always been known for Jack and Jorma. In 2010 they recorded their first studio album in 20 years. "Steady as She Goes" was later released by Red House Records on April 5, 2011.
