In their only San Francisco appearance, Kimock brings his Tribute to Jerry Garcia to the Fillmore. After playing a series of East Coast shows earlier this year to rave reviews, noted guitarist Kimock, along with Jeff Chimenti, Jay Lane, and Bobby Vega, will pay tribute to Jerry’s solo work, including his collaborations with Merl Saunders and the various incarnations of the Jerry Garcia Band. Along the way, Steve’s playing will also honor some of the influences he shares with Jerry, including such legendary artists as Roy Buchanan, Freddie King, BB King, and Mike Bloomfield, who Steve considers a catalyst for most musicians in Bay Area.
This promises to be a great celebration of Jerry Garcia’s soulful musical legacy, as well as Rex’s successful work in 2015. We look forward to seeing you there!

Steve Kimock will be returning to Jorma’s Fur Peace Ranch on September 23rd-September 26th to lead workshops in Improvisational Guitar – Concepts and Techniques.
According to Kimock, “these workshops will focus on improvisational concepts and guitar techniques with the goal of finding your individual voice on the instrument. It’s all about the guitar, but bring your slides and steels! Keith Richards once said Blues was “all about bending notes” but never got to the part about which notes and how much. That’s where we’re going. In between the cracks of the keyboard and western music theory to unlock the expressive potential of the guitar from the perspective of modern blues and rock guitar styles.”
If intonation, touch, and tone are what interest you, this is where you need to be!
