Steve Kimock & Friends :: 8.18.17 :: Sweetwater Music Hall :: Mill Valley, CA

Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley, California hosted a trio of Steve Kimock & Friends shows last week. The middle night of the run featured guitarist Steve Kimock joined by his son John Kimock on drums, Dead & Company’s Jeff Chimenti on keyboards, bassist Andy Hess, percussionist Wally Ingram and keyboardist/vocalist Leslie Mendelson. Bob Dylan’s “Babe, It Ain’t No Lie” opened a first set that also saw takes on the Grateful Dead’s “Crazy Fingers,” a rendition of Toots & The Maytals’ “54-46 (Was My Number)” and Mendelson singing “The Maker” by Daniel Lanois. Set two opened with Neil Young’s “Don’t Let It Bring You Down,” followed by Buddy Holly’s “Well … All Right” which led to a lengthy jam. Jimmy Cliff’s “Many Rivers To Cross” and the Dead’s “Brokedown Palace” helped round out the second set and Holly’s “Not Fade Away” was the evening’s encore.
