Rock N Roll Hall of Fame alumnus, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady have been performing together for the past 50 years. Originating from Jefferson Airplane, the duo formed the iconic blues-roots band Hot Tuna.

While in Jefferson Airplane, putting together the soundtrack of the 60s, the pair remained loyal to the blues, jazz, bluegrass, and folk influences of the small clubs and larger venues they had learned from years before. San Francisco down time…hotel rooms on the road…just about anywhere they could manage some off time, they would play together and worked up a set of songs that mirrored their love of roots music. They would often play ‘their’ music at clubs in the Bay Area and while on the road, often after having played a set with the Airplane. In an era in which volume often overtrumped musicianship, Hot Tuna provided both. Fans also discovered that Jack and Jorma really loved to play, sometimes 3-6 hour long sets…which only energized the crowds, and in turn energized their performances.

Jorma and Jack certainly could not have imagined, let alone predicted, where playing would take them. It’s been a long and fascinating road to numerous exciting destinations. After two decades of acoustic and electric concerts and albums, the 1990s brought a new focus on acoustic music to Hot Tuna. More intimate venues with a more individual connection to the audience became increasingly frequent stops. Soon, the loud electric sound (and the semi trailer load of equipment) disappeared entirely from Hot Tuna tours. Two things have never changed: They still love to play as much as they did as kids, and there are still many, many exciting miles yet to travel on their musical odyssey.

Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams

Larry Campbell recently performed, and some say stole the show, to a full house at the Shalin Liu Performance Center alongside David Bromberg and David Hidalgo. Larry is well known in musical circles, initially as the instrumental wizard behind Bob Dylan’s Never Ending Tour and later as the musical director and three-time Grammy-winning producer for Levon Helm. Campbell’s musical dexterity is legendary and won him a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Americana Music Association. Larry stays busy producing albums for Garland Jefferies, the Steep Canyon Rangers, David Bromberg and Hot Tuna. Campbell is married to Teresa Williams and the pair often perform together. The two of them also performed on Jorma Kaukonen’s newest album, Ain’t In No Hurry.

M.E. Productions Presents ‎LEON RUSSELL w/ guest Allen Estes May 30th 8pm @ The Larcom Theatre

leon russel promo

 

Rock and roll Renaissance man. That best describes this Music Legend. Leon Russell’s long and storied career includes collaborations with a virtual who’s who of music icons spanning from Jerry Lee Lewis to Phil Spector to the Rolling Stones. A similar eclecticism and scope also surfaced in his solo work, which couched his charmingly gravelly voice in a rustic yet rich swamp pop fusion of country, blues, and gospel.

Between his solo work, contributions to high-profile albums by other artists, and screen exposure in the Bangla Desh and Mad Dogs & Englishmen documentaries, Russell became a veritable superstar in the Seventies. Russell has won two Grammy awards, chart-topping hits and was inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011. Don’t miss this Intimate Show with a Music Legend.

Jefferson Starship lands in Beverly next weekend @ The Larcom Theatre on Saturday, March 21st at 8pm

Jefferson_Starship_high res

Beverly, MA.  M.E. Productions is excited to present psychedelic rock icons Jefferson Starship at the Larcom Theatre on Saturday, March 21st at 8pm .  Rising from the ashes of Jefferson Airplane, their music helped define a generation focused on civil rights, environmental awareness and anti-war activism. This special show celebrates all the music of Jefferson Airplane on it’s 50TH anniversaryTickets for Jefferson Starship start at $35.

Beginning in 1974 as a break-off of Jefferson Airplane, Jefferson Starship is arguably one of the most well-known bands to come out of that decade. Their first album Blows Against the Empire was the first ever rock music recording nominated for literary science fiction’s prestigious Hugo Award. Their music helped define a generation focused on civil rights, environmental awareness and anti-war activism.

Currently the band is fronted by Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Jefferson Airplane founder Paul Kantner, David Freiberg, also a former Jefferson Airplane member and co-founder of the legendary Quicksilver Messenger Service, and newest member Cathy Richardson, anchoring (and some say channeling) the historic role made famous by Grace Slick. They continue to perform their iconic repertoire of hits spanning all eras of their existence, including “Jane,” “Somebody To Love,” “Miracles,” “White Rabbit,” “Volunteers,” “Count On Me” and many more.

“This is one of the most exciting classic rock shows touring today,” says Seth McNally of M.E. Productions.  “The members haven’t lost a step, if anything they are playing with more energy than ever since the addition of the show stopping Cathy Richardson…and this show is especially exciting as they are celebrating the 50th anniversary of Jefferson Airplane.”

 

Tickets to see Jefferson Starship are $35, $45, and $55 for premier seating.  For tickets and more information visit www.larcomtheater.com or call  978-525-9093.

John Hammond Weaves the Fabric of American Rock N’ Blues

 

Rockport, MA – Profoundly influential blues artist John Hammond will perform at The Shalin Liu Performance Center on Friday, December 12th. Hammond has been a blues fixture for decades and recently joined hallowed company as an inductee into the Blues Hall of Fame. The soulful Grammy winner is known as a consummate triple threat musician (on vocals, guitar, and harmonica), who’s gutsy blues vocals evoke gritty roadhouse memories.   Boston’s rising star Amy Black will open the show. Tickets for this concert start at $29.

Mr. Hammond, a blues legend with a voice like Robert Johnson’s and a demeanor that belies his tear-it-up might before an audience, has a history of being on hand during significant cultural moments.

John has so many stories to tell, including putting the band together for the young Jimi Hendrix that launched his international career.  In fact, Hammond is famously the only person who ever had both Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix in his band at the same time, during a five-night stint at the Gaslight Café in New York City in 1966. It was also John’s recording session with Robbie Robertson, Garth Hudson and Levon Helm which led to Bob Dylan hiring those same players, later to become known as The Band.   Bob Dylan reputedly asked John’s advice on some guitarists. John invited Bob to his session with the Hawks and as they say, “the rest is history.”

John Hammond has become a legend in his own right. He’s garnered 8 Grammy nominations, including a Grammy win, multiple blues music awards, acoustic artist of the year, and blues hall of fame inductee.  Hammond’s history is a who’s who of Blues, and includes performances or recordings with Eric Clapton, Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Duane Allman, Mike Bloomfield, JJ Cale, Tom Waits, The Band, John Lee Hooker, Dr. John and many, many more. He is known as the embodiment of the quintessential acoustic Blues troubadour, always serving tradition by pouring his heart and soul into full-bodied interpretations of the classics through the simple combination of brilliant guitar, rack harmonica, and intensely expressive vocals.

“John’s sound is so compelling, complete, symmetrical and soulful with just his voice, guitar and harmonica, it is at first impossible to imagine improving it,” says Tom Waits.  “He’s a great force of nature. John sounds like a big train coming. He chops them all down.”
