Jamband Spotlight: Steve Kimock

Words by Greg Molitor (Remind Photography)

This week’s Jamband Spotlight features the music of guitarist extraordinaire Steve Kimock. Jerry Garcia once cited Steve Kimock as his “favorite unknown guitarist”, and after one listen to Kimock’s music, it’s easy to understand why Garcia held such high praise for his fellow Bay Area guitarist...

I’ve selected three diverse shows for your enjoyment. Notice how the combination of Kimock’s technique and listening ability allow him to create his magic with various lineups as he injects his subtle yet emotional playing during each performance. Truly a master of his craft, Steve Kimock’s gorgeous compositions shine no matter what group he’s assembled. I hope you enjoy his music as much as I do. Happy listening!
