Jorma Kaukonen’s 70th Birthday Bash at the Beacon Theater in NYC on December 3 & 4, 2010 was a very special night, if not a historic one. There was electricity in the air and cause for celebration as Hot Tuna and special guests (We are talking about guitarists galore!) tore up the Beacon Theatre. Electric Hot Tuna and Friends lit up both nights with straight on rock and roll. It was a celebration of Jorma’s birthday for sure, and a celebration of a lifetime of friendships and musical camaraderie.
From the opening credits featuring the fans filling the theatre to the final encore; it was a night filled with thanks to Jorma, Jack Casady, and the Hot Tuna family for setting the soundtrack to our lives. A small crew with hand held cameras captured the night on video. Shot in standard definition, the video was strictly meant for personal archival footage. But the concert was so good and music so great that everyone decided it needed to be released.
The project was produced by the Fur Peace Ranch and the Kevin Morgan Studio, directed and edited by Andie Walla, and recorded and mixed by Jason Greenburg.
