Steve Kimock to Host Benefit For Hurricane Sandy Victims
Steve Kimock will host a benefit for victims of Hurricane Sandy on February 23, 2013. The event will take place at the new Manhattan club Stage 48, where Kimock was slated to perform in December (the venue’s opening has been slightly delayed). Kimock will perform with his current band, which features Parliament/Funkadelic keyboardist Bernie Worrell, percussionist Wally Ingram (David Lindley, Sheryl Crow) and bassist Andy Hess (Gov’t Mule). Several special guests are slated to join the ensemble throughout the night. Proceeds will be directed through the club’s Stage 2 benefit campaign.
For one night only, in addition to regularly priced tickets, the band and club will sell tickets at special “Stage 2” fundraising prices. Here’s a look at the various price levels:
Let’s Get Rid of the Blues – $50
At this level you get a poster signed by Steve Kimock and the band. Kimock will perform with Hot Tuna at New York’s Beacon Theatre on November 30.
Let’s Rock Some Lives – $100
This level gets you a signed poster and a picture with the band.
Let’s Raise Some Roofs – $250
And at this level you get the opportunity to sit in on the sound check, you receive a signed poster, and you get your picture taken with the band.
Fans who purchased tickets to Kimock’s December show at the club can either get a refund or use the ticket for the new date. The guitarist recently wrapped-up a run of shows with Hot Tuna co-founder Jorma Kaukonen.
