THIS CONCERT INCLUDES BOTH ELECTRIC & ACOUSTIC HOT TUNA
The name Hot Tuna invokes as many different moods and reactions as there are Hot Tuna fans — millions of them. To some, Hot Tuna is a reminder of some wild and happy times. To others, that name will forever be linked to their own discovery of the power and depth of American blues and roots music. To newer fans, Hot Tuna is a tight, masterful duo that is on the cutting edge of great music. All of those things are correct, and more. For more than four decades, Hot Tuna has played, toured, and recorded some of the best and most memorable acoustic and electric music ever. And Hot Tuna is still going strong — some would say stronger than ever. Founded by Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady, who became Rock & Roll Hall of Famers as members of Jefferson Airplane, the two have survived a host of different musicians along the collaborative journey they call Hot Tuna.
In 2014, Kimock followed with the return of a rollicking, revamped Steve Kimock & Friends, widely regarded as the most exciting iteration of Kimock’s rock/dance band outfit since its inception in the early 90’s. The ensemble, featuring bassist Vega, Dead & Company keyboardist Jeff Chimenti, drummers Bill Vitt, Jay Lane, John Morgan Kimock, and Wally Ingram, guitar ace Dan “Lebo” Lebowitz, and singer/multi-instrumentalist Leslie Mendelson, hit a joyous crescendo during the Dead’s 50th anniversary year, thrilling music lovers with great grooves and carrying on a musical legacy in a jubilant atmosphere. Kimock continues to elevate audiences worldwide with Steve Kimock & Friends.
Currently, Steve Kimock and Friends includes Steve Kimock on guitars, lap & pedal steel, Billy Goodman (Goodman Brothers) on vocals, slide guitar, John Morgan Kimock on drums, Kenny Aaronson (Bob Dylan, Billy Idol) on bass, Michael Borowski on keys and more!”
Both acts have performed in the industry across four decades and multiple continents, and we are glad that they will be here together at The Kent Stage. With a special electric experience from Hot Tuna, as well as the man dubbed “The Guitar Monk” by Relix Magazine in Steve Kimock, our fans are sure to have a great time at this show. Show starts at 7:30 P.M., and both the doors & box office will open one hour prior to start time. As always, we thank you for your continued support and look forward to seeing you soon.
