We’re pleased to announce that KIMOCK will commemorate their upcoming album release with a November tour including a performance at the Flying Monkey. The tour features Steve Kimock, guitar; John Morgan Kimock, drums; Leslie Mendelson, vocals, multi-instruments; Andy Hess, bass (Gov’t Mule, Black Crowes, John Scofield). Initially assembled to perform the music of Steve’s acclaimed solo release Last Danger of Frost, KIMOCK has catalyzed an extraordinary burst of song-writing creativity that has yielded a new record, Satellite City. It’s gorgeous music, weaving together Steve’s exquisite tone and inspired melodies, John Morgan’s superb time-keeping as well as inventive samples and ambience, Leslie Mendelson’s elegant voice and Hess’s rock-solid bass. This is going to be special. 

With his newest album, Satellite City, due out in October, Steve Kimock’s latest collaboration, KIMOCK, adds fresh elements of pop and electronica in a romantic exploration, to his multi-decade reputation as a blazing psychedelic guitarist versatile enough to touch almost all aspects of American music. Whether with Parliament/Funkadelic co-founder Bernie Worrell, Jorma Kaukonen, all the living former members of the Grateful Dead, Little Feat, the Allman Brothers, Taj Mahal, or his solo acoustic project Last Danger of Frost, Steve Kimock has proved himself a master of fluid improvisation for over four decades, in the process inspiring music fans with his transcendent guitar speak voiced through electric, acoustic, lap and pedal steel guitars. 

While one can say that his genre is rock, no one niche has ever confined him. Instead, through the years, he’s explored various sounds and styles based on what’s moved him at the time, whether it’s blues or jazz; funk or folk; psychedelic or boogie; gypsy or prog-rock; traditional American or world fusion. 

Threaded through this expansive and highly nuanced musical landscape is Kimock’s signature sound, the prodigious product of his ability to articulate crystal-clear tone, melody and emotion into intricately woven music crafted with technical brilliance. His passion and devotion to performing live is matchless, and his unparalleled ability to embrace and capture his audiences musically is the stuff of legend.

Once touted by Jerry Garcia as his “favorite unknown guitar player,” Kimock has also performed as part of Bob Weir’s Kingfish and toured in both 2007 and 2014 with Bob Weir’s band RatDog and recently as a featured member of Bob Weir’s Campfire Band, in addition to post-Grateful Dead ensembles including The Other Ones, Phil Lesh & Friends, and the Rhythm Devils featuring Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann.  

Dubbed “The Guitar Monk” by Relix magazine, Kimock is driven by the knowledge that there is always more to discover – that and the fact that he loves guitar too much to do anything else.
