Steve Kimock Adds a Zero Date, Welcomes Guests, Confirms Everyone Orchestra Gig
Steve Kimock has confirmed both a new Zero show and a few dates with The Everyone Orchestra. On April 6, Kimock will reunite Zero for a performance for California’s Sebastopol Community Cultural Center. Wavy Gravy will host the rare Zero date, which will benefit SEVA.
A few days later, Steve Kimock will perform with the Everyone Orchestra on the East Coast. The guitarist will join the ensemble at both Boston, MA’s South Shore Music Hall (4/18) and New York’s The Cutting Room (4/20). He joins an Everyone Orchestra lineup that already includes: Al Schnier (moe.), Vinnie Amico (moe.), Kalmia Traver (Rubblebucket), Alex Toth (Rubblebucket), Reed Mathis (Tea Leaf Green) and Trevor Garrod (Tea Leaf Green).
In related news, several guests joined Kimock at New York’s Stage 48 on Saturday. In addition to steady band members
Bernie Worrell (keys/vocals), Andy Hess (electric bass) and Wally Ingram (drums), Kimock’s son John Morgan played drums throughout the night. At the start of the night, saxophonist Rob Sudduth, who plays with Norah Jones and Huey Lewis, joined Kimock and his band for “Cole’s Law.” He returned a few songs later alongside former New York Yankee and Grammy-nominated jazz guitarist Bernie Williams for “Philadelphia Mambo” and remained onstage after Williams left for “You’re the One.” Then, Gregg Allman band guitarist Scott Sharrard emerged for a set-closing take on Al Green’s “Take Me To The River” (a song Worrell also performed during his tenure as a touring member of Talking Heads).
Both Sharrard and Rob Sudduth joined Kimock during his second set, too. The musicians took the stage a few songs in for “Inner City Blues” and remained onstage for “Feel So Bad.” Sudduth returned one final time at the end of the evening for “Red Hot Mama.” Proceeds from event benefited victims of Superstorm Sandy.
