Rock and Roll Hall of Famers Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady have been playing and performing together for over 30 years.

Now, with an all acoustic tour, these two, musical virtuosos celebrate the compelling mixture of rock, blues, folk, and country influences that have always distinguished both Jefferson Airplane and the many incarnations of Hot Tuna.

Featuring Jorma's brilliant finger-picked fretwork and songwriting and Jack's expert melodic bass work, these shows are an opportunity to witness two lifelong friends coming together once again to make extraordinary music.
Barry Mitterhoff on mandolin will join them at The Regent. 8PM, $27 (Regent Theatre)
