Following yesterday’s announcement that Tedeschi Trucks Band will curate a Joe Coker Mad Dogs & Englishmen performance at Lockn’ Music Festival, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady will celebrate 50 Years of JEFFERSON AIRPLANE with special guest performances on Friday, September 11th at the Lockn’ Music Festival.
It was 50 years ago this summer that Jefferson Airplane formed and quickly established themselves as the progenitors of the infamous San Francisco psychedelic rock sound. With historic performances at Woodstock, Monterey Pop Festival, Altamont and other theaters, arenas and stadiums throughout the world, Jefferson Airplane had many Top 10 hits, including “Somebody To Love” and “White Rabbit”, sold millions of albums in the late 60’s and early 70’s, and influenced generations of rock music fans.
In 1972, Jorma and Jack left the band for creative reasons and have toured as Hot Tuna ever since. In an exclusive Lockn’ Festival engagement, they will be joined by Rachael Price (Lake Street Dive), G.E. Smith (formerly of SNL), Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams (Bob Dylan, Levon Helm Band) Jeff Pehrson (Furthur), Justin Guip (Hot Tuna), and very special guest Bill Kreutzmann of Grateful Dead on drums.
