Ocean City Music Pier serves up some Hot Tuna

Who Are They: One of the great blues guitarists in rock 'n' roll history shows off his stuff tonight in Ocean City. Jorma Kaukonen, the longtime frontman for Hot Tuna, brings the band - featuring his old-time high-school buddy and longtime bass player, Jack Casady - to the Music Pier for a night of bluesy music.

What To Expect: Hot Tuna comes in two distinct flavors - acoustic and electric. Tonight's show is billed as Hot Tuna Electric, so you can expect it to be loud and rocking. But Kaukonen, right, and Casady have played together for so long they're always a completely tight unit.
