Steve Kimock: Free Live EP


Following Steve Kimock‘s widely welcomed re-emergence to the stage on his 23-date East Coast tour with Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famer (and Parliament-Funkadelic co-founder) Bernie Worrell, Kimock brings his new band back home to the West for a Bay Area run prior to his headlining gig at the Fuji Rock Festival in Japan.

Today Kimock released a free live EP featuring songs culled from his first run with the new band this spring. A sonic snapshot of serious grooves, stirring improvisations, heavy funk and tight-as-a-drum rock and roll, the EP includes several Kimock originals, including the classic “One For Brother Mike” (Cleveland, OH), “Thing One” (Nashville, TN), and a new tune, “Hey Man” (Raleigh, NC); as well as choice covers including the mash-up of The Beatles’ “Come Together” into BB King’s “The Thrill is Gone” (Baltimore, MD), and Worrell singing Funkadelic’s “Super Stupid” (5/25/12 – Tampa, FL). The free live EP is available for download here.

With an all-star lineup that also features Wally Ingram (Sheryl Crow, David Lindley) on drums and bassist Andy Hess (Gov’t Mule, Black Crowes), the band plays new material as well as freshly showcasing works from Kimock’s extensive 30-year catalog, along with dynamic covers.

Following the West Coast run, the band will continue on the East Coast beginning with a co-bill with 7 Walkers in New York City, headlining at Flood City Fest, and winding up at the World Café in Philadelphia. John Morgan Kimock takes over on drums for the East Coast dates.
