Kimock And Friends To Channel Jerry And Merl At Sweetwater

Guitarist Steve Kimock will honor 1970's Bay Area fixtures Jerry Garcia and Merl Saunders at a special run of three shows between December 12 - 14 at Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley, CA. Kimock will perform his own material along with music from Garcia and Saunders' lauded Keystone live recordings at the shows backed by guitarist Dan Lebowitz of ALO, Furthur keyboardist Jeff Chimenti and drummer Bill Vitt, who played with Jerry and Merl at those famous shows.

On bass for the shows will be Kimock's Zero band mate and longtime collaborator Bobby Vega. According to a statement issued about the shows, Vega and Kimock "are also planning an international Kimock and Vega collaboration in the near future." The shows will mark Steve's first time back at Sweetwater since helping to open the venue. A limited allotment of tickets are available via the venue's website and Kimock's site.
