Friday and Saturday To-Do: Steve Kimock and Friends

Guitarist Steve Kimock has long been hailed as one of the heirs to Jerry Garcia's melodic fretboard wizardry. Garcia himself once described Kimock as his favorite guitarist. Kimock played in the Bay Area group Zero for many years, as well as with various members of the Grateful Dead, including a stint with the short-lived Heart of Gold Band with Keith and Donna Godcheaux and post-Dead outfit The Other Ones (he's touring early next year with Bob Weir and Ratdog).

Since 2000, he's headed up his own band and has built up a major following on the jam circuit in general, Fayetteville in particular and that town's late great venue Chester's Place even more particularly. That was where he played many sold-out shows over the course of the late '90s and '00s.

This weekend sees Kimock returning for his first Fayetteville shows in a few years, so it's safe to say these will likely sell out, especially considering that Parliament-Funkadelic keyboard legend Bernie Worrell is among the players. Also performing with Kimock are his son John Morgan on drums, Reed Mathis of Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey and Tea Leaf Green, Tulsa keyboardist Steve Pryor and more.
