Cabinet offered a two-night Thanksgiving Weekend run at Ardmore Music Hall in Ardmore, Pennsylvania near Philadelphia. Friday, November 25 saw the Scranton-born band welcoming guitarist Steve Kimock and drummer John Kimock for their second set at Ardmore.

Cabinet — Pappy Biondo, Mickey Coviello, JP Biondo, Todd Kopec, Dylan Skursky, Jami Novak and Brian “Nugget” Gorby — kicked off the show with “Po’s Reel.” The first frame also included pairings of “Cut Down Tree” and “The Tower” along with “Hit It On The Head” and “Deep River Blues.” Following “Miss Molly,” Cabinet capped the first set with “Treesap.”

The band would bring out guitarist Steve Kimock and his son drummer John Kimock — who joined in on an extra kit alongside Cabinet percussionist Brian “Nugget” Gorby and drummer Jami Novak — for the complete second set, which began with a jam that prefaced “Silver Sun.” The band kept segueing through “Caroline” ahead of a 16-minute “I Know You Rider” and a substantial “Shady Grove.” Cabinet and collaborators finished up “Silver Sun” to seal the seamless sequence.

After “Wheels,” Cabinet and the Kimocks linked up on “Universe” and a cover of the Toots & The Maytals classic “54-46 Was My Number” to close out the set. Steve and John would return to help Cabinet out on the Pigpen-sung Grateful Dead classic “Easy Wind,” helmed by Novak to bring the evening to a close
