Steve Kimock To Perform With Former Bandmate in Mountain of Venus
Following the announcement that Jody Cohen will be leaving Mountain of Venus, the group put out a call for additional players and as of late Jim Kost has joined the band on keyboards. Kost, who recently put in a stint with the Steve Kimock Band, has been changing the dynamic a bit as his background is in jazz. Meanwhile, Kimock has maintained friendship with MOV over the years and on October 14 the guitarist will join the group on stage for a performance at Mexicali Blues Cafe in Teaneck, NJ.Three Princes (Or The Motet’s Transpositions Thereof)
The Motet has confirmed that as per prior years it will interpret the music of another artist on Halloween. For 2004 it’s going to be Prince (if you feel a strong urge, insert your own joke here about partying like it’s 1999, but do so at your own peril). The Motet’s ‘Sexy Muthafunkin’ Halloween Party’ will take place on Sunday the 31st at Cervantes’ in Denver but the group indicates that it will also offer up some Prince at The Starlight in Fort Collins on 10/29 and The Fox in Boulder on 10/30.
The Motet which recently released its latest studio recording Music for Life has also been added to the benefit performance at Red Rocks on October 2 with Blues Traveler and Spearhead (for a bit more on the group, be sure to Mike Greenhaus’ interview with Dave Watts).Jammys On Trio Today
