Our friends at Gear Hero HQ in Deerfield Beach, Florida hosted a meet and greet with Hot Tuna last month. A highlight of the evening was when Epiphone artist, and legendary bassist, Jack Casady selected the winner of an Epiphone Jack Casady Signature Bass and personally presented the bass to the winner.
As a founding member of the Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna, Casady's full driving tone and innovative melodic bass work has defined the role of bass guitar in rock and roll for decades. Liberating the bass from its traditional role as part of the rhythm section, Jack's pioneering approach has brought the instrument to the forefront. With sweeping chords and stormy melodic lines, Jack's bass distinguished not only Jefferson Airplane and Hot Tuna but also a variety of side projects and recordings with artists including Jimi Hendrix, David Crosby, Warren Zevon, Country Joe and The Fish, SVT, Rusted Root, and Gov’t Mule.
