Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady's blues band Hot Tuna spend a lot of the time on the road every year, and 2017 will be no exception. They've currently got dates booked from February through late July, with likely more on the way. They're doing a run of acoustic shows in February, and doing an electric tour in July with the Tedeschi Trucks Band.

In between those two runs, they'll be in NYC for two Electric Hot Tuna shows. First they play on April 14 at The Grand Prospect Park Hall in Park Slope (which is a benefit for the Guild For Exceptional Children), and then on April 15 at St. George Theatre in Staten Island. Tickets for Brooklyn and Staten Island for both shows go on sale Friday (2/3). All dates are listed with the flyer for the Brooklyn show, below.

Jorma and Jack's band Jefferson Airplane celebrate the 50th anniversary of their psych-rock classic Surrealistic Pillow tomorrow (February 1). Watch them play "3/5 of a Mile In 10 Seconds" off that album at the Beacon (with Marty Balin on vocals) in 2014:
