along with special guests American Murder Song and Eliza Rickman.

Pioneers in the use of cello as the sole instrument within a rock band, Rasputina has been inspiring young string players to commit a number of musical sins since 1996. The group's concept was written as a manifesto, and manifested accordingly by directress Melora Creager as a wily subterfuge for a plot to open audiences to adventure. The funny, the sad, the heavy, the tender -- it can all exist together.

Presented by The Not Ready for Retirement Players

The Not Ready for Retirement Players are proud to present their third production in The Studio at the Hult, “Funny Money,” by Ray Cooney. The play, directed by Chris Pinto, is a wonderful farce in which the main character, Henry Perkins, has mistakenly picked up the wrong briefcase on the subway. He discovers that instead of his scarf and gloves being in his briefcase, there is a million dollars in British pounds. He immediately goes to a pub to count the money in the men’s bathroom, which makes him late for his birthday party and draws the attention of a police officer who thinks Henry is in the bathroom to solicit men. His wife Jean is frantic, preparing a birthday surprise which includes dinner with their close friends, Vic and Betty Johnson. When Henry doesn’t arrive home at his normal time, Jean starts to drink. The hilarity ensues when Henry comes home and announces they are immediately emigrating to Barcelona, which is a complete surprise to everyone. However, before they can escape, two police officers show up, in addition to the mobster Mr. Big, who is looking for his briefcase.

This non-stop farce is frenetically funny and provides many laughs as Henry ineptly attempts to extricate himself from this impossible position, leading to increasingly hysterical situations. The cast includes well-known Eugene actors Dan Pegoda, Bill Campbell, Paul Rhoden, Scott Machado, Melanie Moser, Chris Pinto, Chris McVay, and newcomer Janna Slack. This cast is sure to delight with their comical flair and superb timing, and this fast-paced whirlwind will not disappoint as it leaves you in stitches.

Hot Tuna, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, perform with a well-honed and solid power – always in the groove from their years of experience and mutual inspiration. Started as a side project during Jefferson Airplane days, the constant, the very definition of Hot Tuna, has always been Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady. The two boyhood pals have never wavered in one of the most enduring friendships in Rock history.

From their days playing together as teenagers in the Washington, DC area, through years of inventive Psylodelic rock in San Francisco (1996 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Inductees), to their current acoustic and electric blues sound, no one has more consistently led American music for the last 50 years than Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, the founders and continuing core members of Hot Tuna. At the 2016 Grammys, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady were honored with Lifetime Achievement Awards.

“Jorma Kaukonen is a force in American music, equally adept at fingerpicked acoustic folk and blues as he is at wailing on an electric.” – Acoustic Guitar
Guitarist and vocalist, Jorma Kaukonen is a highly respected interpreter of roots music, blues, Americana, and popular rock-and-roll. Jorma’s repertoire goes far beyond psychedelic rock; he is a music legend and one of the finest singer-songwriters in music. Jorma tours the world bringing his unique styling to old blues while writing new songs of weight and dimension.

“Jack Casady is virtually unparalleled–and yet he has one of the most truly unique electric-bass voices in rock...he can melt into a supportive role but when opportunity knocks, he bursts forth with creative lines–both simple and ornate–that are unlike any you’ve heard” – Premier Guitar
One of the most unique innovators in the sixty-year history of the bass guitar, Jack Casady made his sweeping melodic mark helping to create the “San Francisco Sound” with legendary rock group Jefferson Airplane. Jack went on to track with Jimi Hendrix, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Warren Zevon, members of the Grateful Dead, John Lee Hooker, and Gov’t Mule. Casady, regarded as one of rock's greatest bassists, is certainly one of its most original.
