Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna bassist to celebrate with friends
Story by Jon Liebman | July 29, 2014
Rock bass legend Jack Casady, who turned 70 back in April, will be honored in a somewhat belated birthday party later this year. Jack’s 70th Birthday Bash will be celebrated December 13 at the Beacon Theatre in New York City.
In true Beacon Theatre tradition, Jack’s party promises to be a true rock & roll extravaganza. Thus far, the list of guests includes fellow Airplane alums Jorma Kaukonen and Marty Balin, along with multi-instrumentalists Barry Mitterhoff and Larry Campbell, vocalist Teresa Williams and drummer Justin Guip. Tickets go on sale August 8.
In the meantime, please enjoy this video of Balin’s “Volunteers,” featuring guitarist Chuck Morrongiello and upright bassist Lloyd Goldstein, along with Casady and Kaukonen. Happy Birthday, Jack!
