It's an understatement to say improvisational guitar icon Steve Kimock has been keeping busy. He’s approaching an East Coast tour with his newest band KIMOCK featuring his son John Morgan Kimock on drums and frequent collaborator Leslie Mendelson on guitar and vocals. He just wrapped up a successful yet unprecedented mini-tour of Japan.
Come out to support Art & Soul on Friday, May 12th at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. Steve Kimock & Friends, featuring Steve Kimock, Jeff Chimenti, Bobby Vega, John Morgan Kimock, Leslie Mendelson, plus special guests, will take the stage to benefit Dave Hunter, visionary poster artist and designer and longtime friend of ZERO and Steve Kimock. There will be a silent auction, raffle and a poster art show by the Rock Poster Society and Wavy Gravy will be hosting the evenings festivities.
Steve Kimock, the protean improvisational guitarist whom Jorma Kaukonen (Jefferson Airplane, Hot Tuna) recently tabbed “arguably one of the greatest guitarists alive,” is pleased to announce a new series of concerts in June that will celebrate the release of two singles (the complete album will be released in the fall). This current phase of songwriting comes in the aftermath of his acoustic explorations in the album Last Danger of Frost. In the wake of Frost, he and the members of the band that toured behind it found themselves creatively ins

Bob Weir was quite literally born and bred in music. The adopted son of loving parents Frederic Utter and Eleanor Cramer Weir, his identity would deepen and develop in his youth. Though his parents did their best (Mama Tried) Weir’s nature was rebellious and questioning. His dyslexia didn’t help matters. In his teens, Weir was shipped off from his birthplace of San Francisco to Fountain Valley School in Colorado Springs, Colorado where hopes were that he would straighten out.
“Never trust a prankster,” a motto of the Acid Test-producing Merry Pranksters back in the 1960s, was apropos on Friday, at Bob Weir’s inaugural Campfire Tour show in San Rafael, California. In support of Weir’s new countrified, ballad-heavy album, “Blue Mountain,” all signs pointed to a live show in which Weir’s new band would mosey on through a series of sparse, slow-paced odes.
Steve will be joining Bob Weir's Campfire Tour on guitar and lapsteel (he may even dust off some pedal steel for this special occasion). After being a part of the recording session for Blue Mountain and also appearing on the new record, it's an honor for Steve to also participate in the tour.
See you on the road!
