Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady reconvened their seminal psychedelic offshoot Hot Tuna on Wednesday to open a fall tour in Boston. The show at The Cabot Theatre arrived as the former Jefferson Airplane bandmates’ first in a run of ten Northeastern concerts.

This tour comes amidst a flurry of activity for Casady and Kaukonen. Hot off a run of dates opening for Little Feat and Tedeschi Trucks Band, Jorma and Jack appeared alongside their former Airplane bandmate Grace Slick on October 13th to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

“We’ve been in the busi­ness for a long time and we’ve got­ten some ac­co­lades along the way,” Kaukonen told The Hudson Independent in an interview last week. “You don’t start out think­ing about that stuff—it would have never crossed my mind. For ex­am­ple, I did­n’t even know the Air­plane got a Grammy nom­i­na­tion around the time of Sur­re­al­is­tic Pil­low [1967, Best New Artist]. It did­n’t con­cern me. I did­n’t re­al­ize it un­til the Life­time Grammy thing and I was like, ‘You’re kid­ding me!’”

Since emerging from pandemic livestreams at Jorma’s Fur Peace Ranch in southeast Ohio, Hot Tuna has taken a renewed approach to its expansive catalog. Recent performances have seen the revival of gems like “Highway Song” and “Song From The Stainless Cymbal”  alongside classics like “Ode To Billy Dean”, “Sea Child”, “Water Song”, and many other longtime live favorites.

“Dur­ing our [vir­tual] quar­an­tine con­certs, I started to bring back a lot of old songs that had sort of fallen by the way­side from a reper­toire point of view,” Kaukonen told The Hudson Independent. “And so Jack and I now have a lot of new/​old songs and a cou­ple of new songs, too, but many that we are re­sus­ci­tat­ing. The au­di­ence will hear a wide spec­trum of tunes that they haven’t heard in a while, but some old chest­nuts, too—what would a night be with­out ‘Hes­i­ta­tion Blues?’”
