Voodoo Dead
Voodoo Dead
For the 11th consecutive year, NYC-based promoters CEG and Nolafunk honor the spirit and music of New Orleans with their 11th Annual Nolafunk Mardi Gras Ball & Tour. The four shows will feature Voodoo Dead, a band that has only ever performed in New Orleans as part of Jazz Fest late-nights in 2015 and 2016. This particular lineup features an unprecedented artist lineup with Steve Kimock [RatDog, Rhythm Devils], Jackie Greene [Black Crowes, Phil & Friends], Oteil Burbridge [Dead & Co, Allman Bros.], Jeff Chimenti [Dead & Co, Furthur, The Dead], Wally Ingram [Sheryl Crow Band, Timbuk 3], plus special guest New Orleans-based Papa Mali of 7 Walkers. A New Orleans brass band will be announced soon as the opening act.

The mini-tour will feature stops at The Hamilton in Washington D.C. for two nights (February 8th – 9th), then Irving Plaza in New York City (February 10th), and the Ardmore Music Hall just outside Philadelphia (February 11th.) More special guests will be announced in coming weeks to round out this extraordinary bill to celebrate the music of The Grateful Dead and more, with a New Orleans twist.

The Grateful Dead always had a special relationship with New Orleans. New Orleans classics like “Aiko Aiko” and The Meters’ “Hey Pocky Way” became staples in the Dead’s live catalog. The band performed shows recognizing Mardi Gras and had opening acts such as Rebirth Brass Band, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and The Neville Brothers. Members of The Neville Brothers also sat in with the Grateful Dead on numerous occasions.
Prior years of the Nolafunk Mardi Gras Ball have featured many of the premier artists from New Orleans including Dr. John, Kermit Ruffins, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Anders Osborne, Jon Cleary, Dumpstaphunk, and many more.

CEG & Nolafunk present shows all year round in cities across the country and they currently have upcoming shows with Rebirth Brass Band, Marcus King Band, Snarky Puppy, The James Brown Dance Party, Tab Benoit, Bonerama / The New Orleans Suspects, Sweet Crude and more in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Baltimore, and New Orleans.

Limited pre-sale tickets for the 11th Annual Mardi Gras Ball & Tour will be available to Nolafunk email subscribers at 11am on Tuesday, November 22nd. Limited pre-sale tickets will also be available to CEG email subscribers the following day at 11am on Wednesday, November 23rd.

Fans can sign up for the emailers at http://www.nolafunk.com/ and http://www.cegpresents.com/ to be sent the exclusive presale access code.

Tickets will be available to the general public at 11am on Friday, December 2nd.

STEVE KIMOCK’S NEW SOLO ALBUM LAST DANGER OF
FROST NEW PROJECT KIMOCK, ON TOUR IN 2016

Even the most inspired and free-thinking artist, one whose celebrated command of his instrument and musical expression underscores a strong sense of fluidity and freedom within the traditional structure of American rock music, can wake up one day with the desire – the need, rather – to flip the table, reshuffle the deck, and draw fresh cards for himself. And so we find Steve Kimock, a master of small band improvisation and champion of the national rock and dance band circuit for four decades, breaking new ground with his latest solo effort, Last Danger of Frost.
(release date: March 18, 2016)

“There are other spaces and experiences music flows into, fills, and conforms to: family, nature, travel, quiet study and contemplation, imagination, to name a few. For me, the balance of the music has shifted to ‘other,’” Kimock declares. As evidenced on Last Danger of Frost, the “other” morphs acoustic and electronic sounds, voiced by vintage guitars, synthesizers and bass. For instance, the “other” found him laying down an entire track using nothing but guitar feedback, manipulated into bird song and beats that he overdubbed into the ambient “Big Sky”.

Recorded in Kimock’s century-old Pennsylvania barn last winter before a move back to California, Last Danger of Frost offers a daring personal expression that introduces innovative techniques the guitarist discovered in a solo setting. Kimock dismantles the rock band framework and takes a full stretch to create exploratory sounds and intimate compositions that may have been waiting to be revealed – or rediscovered – the whole time.

“Music is the feeling you get when you listen to good music,” Kimock states. “That was my understanding when I got my very first cheapo acoustic guitar and, failing to tune or play it, entertained myself by sliding the bridge around to change the pitch. The non-conventional technique and tuning concepts came early and easy. I listened and played without knowing anything other than that I was being transported to a beautiful new world by sound. Some half a century later I find myself in my barn, recording these sounds – in the absence of commercial style and convention, peer pressure and audience expectation... or maybe just in defiance.”

In spring 2016, this music will be presented in an exciting, new, intimate ensemble called K I M O C K when Steve partners with John Morgan Kimock (drummer, composer, multi-instrumentalist). The father/son duo has been composing further music over the past year, inspired by the record’s compositions and direction, orchestrating musical styles across genres and generations. Fans will encounter a listening experience that spotlights Steve’s remarkable tone in an intuitive flow of Eastern and Western folk music, heartfelt acoustic guitar, ambient electronic expressions, inventive covers, and contemporary compositions. Also planned for the new touring project is Steve’s longtime bass-playing left hand, Bobby Vega, who will bring 30 years’ worth of chemistry and collaboration, deep grooves and rich tones to the mix. Add to that special guest vocalist Leslie Mendelson, with whom the duo has also been composing, and you have the makings of an inspired new project.

K I M O C K invites audiences to lean in, listen and experience the symbiosis. For more information and to pre-order Last Danger of Frost on vinyl, please visit www.kimock.com.

STEVE KIMOCK

A master of improvisation for over four decades, Steve Kimock has been inspiring music fans with his transcendent guitar speak, voiced through electric, acoustic, lap and pedal steel guitars. While one can say that his genre is rock, no one niche has ever confined him. Instead, through the years, he’s explored various sounds and styles based on what’s moved him at the time, whether it’s blues or jazz; funk or folk; psychedelic or boogie; gypsy or prog-rock; traditional American or world fusion.

Threaded through this expansive and highly nuanced musical landscape is Kimock’s signature sound, the prodigious product of his ability to articulate crystal-clear tone, melody and emotion into intricately woven music crafted with technical brilliance. His passion and devotion to performing live is matchless, and his unparalleled ability to embrace and capture his audiences musically is the stuff of legend.

Kimock co-founded the jazz/rock band Zero in the ‘80s and KVHW in the ‘90s; since then, he has recorded and toured in various outfits under his own name. His collaborations with assorted band mates and groups have provided an everlasting wellspring of inspiration for the guitarist, and he has shared the stage with a seemingly endless array of international musical luminaries. After more than 40 years on stage, Kimock is more committed than ever to a jubilant spirit of musical diversity — the same spirit that has fed his desire to pursue an authentic relationship with the guitar since the day he realized his calling.

Born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, in 1955, as a preteen Kimock spent plenty of time at the home of his aunt, Dorothy Siftar, a folk singer who played the Philadelphia Folk Festival with Pete Seeger and had an abundance of stringed and percussive instruments in her home. Around this time, Steve’s cousin Kenny returned from military service overseas and taught Kimock his first rock ‘n roll licks on a beautiful Gold Top Les Paul (which, incidentally and decades later, Kimock now owns). It wasn’t long until Kimock got his own guitar, a $10 acoustic that he began playing 12 hours a day, every day, and it changed his life forever.

After playing in a series of high school bands, Kimock joined the Goodman Brothers Band, which first moved to northern California in 1974. Steve’s first home was a cabin in Marin, directly behind the Ali Akbar Khan School of Music. Every morning he woke to the sound of sarods and sitars, sparking his interest in the music of other cultures that colors his own compositions to this day.
Kimock fell in with the Bay Area’s local music scene and began playing in a variety of outfits, including the salsa band The Underdogs (with flautist/saxophonist Martin Fierro). In 1979 he joined the short-lived Heart of Gold Band with Grateful Dead members Keith and Donna Godchaux and drummer Greg Anton.

In 1984, Kimock and Anton co-founded Zero, an instrumental psychedelic jazz/rock/blues band that also included former Underdogs bandmate Fierro, bassist Bobby Vega, keyboardist Pete Sears (who was eventually succeeded by Chip Roland), and former Quicksilver Messenger Service guitarist John Cipollina. It was during the Zero era that Kimock would define his fluid style of melodious improvisation.

By 1992, Zero was regarded as one of the marquee Bay Area bands and architects of the infant jam band genre. The band began working with Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter and added vocalist Judge Murphy before going on an extended hiatus in the late ‘90s. During their initial time together, Zero released five albums including 1987’s debut Here Goes Nothin’; 1990’s Nothin’ Goes Here; 1991’s live effort Live: Go Hear Nothin’; the band’s 1994 major label debut, the live album Chance in a Million; and 1997’s self-titled studio album, along with hundreds of live recordings.

While still performing with Zero, Kimock began to explore new terrain with the looser, bluesier Steve Kimock & Friends, an ever-evolving project that continues to feature a cast of acclaimed singer- songwriters, Hammond B-3 players, rock guitarists and numerous other serious players Kimock has befriended along the way.

Kimock spent the end of the century with KVHW, a much lauded though short-lived quartet comprised of himself, Zero bassist Vega, drummer Alan Hertz, and former Frank Zappa sideman Ray White. KVHW toured nationally from January 1998 through December 1999, playing a repertoire that consisted of original compositions and songs from Kimock’s previous bands, as well as a number of Frank Zappa covers.

In February 2000, KVHW morphed into the Steve Kimock Band, which featured Kimock and Vega (who was succeeded by Alphonso Johnson in 2001), along with a rotating crew of guitarists and drummers. Eventually, the lineup solidified with drummer Rodney Holmes and guitarist Mitch Stein. In 2001, they released Live in Colorado, followed by the 2002 double live album, East Meets West (culled from shows in San Francisco and Japan); and in 2004, the double live album, Live in Colorado, Vol. II. In 2005, the Steve Kimock Band released the lauded studio album, Eudemonic and toured nationally, anchored by Kimock and Holmes with keyboardist Robert Walter (20th Congress, Greyboy Allstars) and bassist Reed Mathis (Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey, Tea Leaf Green).

In 2009, he formed the upbeat, gospel-influenced, soul-rock band Steve Kimock Crazy Engine, which featured legendary Hammond B3 player Melvin Seals; Kimock’s son, John Morgan Kimock, on drums; and accomplished singer-songwriter and cello player, Trevor Exter, who was plucked out of the NYC indie music scene to fill the role of bass and vocals. In 2010, Steve & John Kimock continued their collaboration for the 10th anniversary of the sold-out New York Guitar Festival, where they scored a silent film (Buster Keaton’s Cops), sharing the bill with Justin Vernon (Bon Iver).

Once touted by Jerry Garcia as his “favorite unknown guitar player,” Kimock has also performed as part of Bob Weir’s Kingfish and toured in both 2007 and 2014 with RatDog, in addition to post-Grateful Dead ensembles including The Other Ones, Phil Lesh & Friends, and the Rhythm Devils featuring Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann. The guitarist has recorded and toured with Bruce Hornsby and worked extensively with Merl Saunders. Additionally, he has shared the stage with The Allman Brothers, Angélique Kidjo, Bonnie Raitt, Buddy Miles, Derek Trucks, Elvin Bishop, George Porter Jr., Grace Potter, Grace Slick, Joe Satriani, Jorma Kaukonen, Keller Williams, Little Feat, Nicky Hopkins, Norton Buffalo, Papa John Creach, Peter Frampton, all members of Phish, Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, Stephen Perkins, Steve Winwood, Taj Mahal, Todd Rundgren and Warren Haynes, among many others.

While Kimock’s curiosity and openness to the array of great musicians with whom he surrounds himself is nothing short of astonishing, the music he made with his brothers in Zero feels like a return to the comforts of home. In 2006, Kimock and Anton reunited Zero, touring until the death of Fierro in March 2008. In March 2011, the band reunited for the 20th anniversary of the Chance in a Million recording sessions at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall, as a benefit for Murphy, who was battling a grave illness. After more than 30 years since forming, Zero carries on today, as the band plays select shows and benefit performances in the Bay Area.

In 2012, Kimock took the helm once again and hit the road with a new lineup, including Parliament Funkadelic/Talking Heads, Hall of Famer Bernie Worrell, drummer Wally Ingram, and bassist Andy Hess. The band played new original material while celebrating Kimock’s rich catalog of music. Kimock released a digital free live EP of the band.

JOHN KIMOCK

Born into a musical family in Northern California, John Morgan Kimock began composing before he could walk or speak. Prior to moving to the east coast at the age of six, some of John’s early musical experiences included playing ceremonial drums with the Pomo Indians, accompanying Tuvan throat singers, and having his drums destroyed onstage at the Fillmore West by Todd Rundgren.

For more than a decade, John has worked in the U.S., Europe, and Canada with many bands and collaborated with his father, acclaimed guitarist Steve Kimock, in various projects which included musicians like George Porter Jr. (the Meters), Bernie Worrell (founding member of Parliament/ Funkadelic), Bobby Vega (Sly Stone) Andy Hess (Black Crowes, Govt Mule), Members of the Grateful Dead, The Other Ones, Jeff Sipe, John Molo, Bruce Hornsby, Stephen Perkins (Jane’s Addiction), Everyone Orchestra and many more.

In 2006, Glide Magazine gave John their number five spot for second generation rockers alongside Sean Lennon, Jacob Dylan, and The Marleys.

“In today’s world of music and musicians it is great and refreshing to hear and play with younger players who not only play great but listen to what is being played around them; truly a gift, John Morgan Kimock has that gift, and I love playing with him.” George Porter, Jr.

John continues to play groundbreaking festivals, including a sold-out concert at Lincoln Center with Steve Kimock co-billed with Justin Vernon (Bon Iver) scoring silent films for the New York Guitar Festival. John scored music for Brooklyn-based dance company Airealistic and also scored Tinie Tempah's film about his sold-out European arena tour, Discovering Destiny, directed by Jabari Johnson. John toured with Our Griffins from 2012 until 2013, sharing bills with the likes of Lost in the Trees, The Royal Bangs, Bad Suns, and Nightlands.

In 2014, John was tapped by Phish’s Mike Gordon to play in his band, an ongoing touring and recording relationship.
Currently John is bi-coastal, spending time both in Burlington, Vermont, and Sonoma County, CA. He has been composing and developing new music with his father for their symbiotic new project, K I M O C K.
Jackie Greene
Jackie Greene
"We live in such a fast-paced, hectic environment, I wanted to make a record that would invite people to step back and take their time to listen," Jackie Greene says of Back to Birth, his first album in five years. "I wanted to make a record that would reward people who are willing to sit down and give it a couple of serious listens."

Back to Birth - Greene's seventh album and his Yep Roc Records debut - is more than worthy of some serious attention. The 11-song set showcases the multitalented artist's uncanny knack for synthesizing his deep affinity for American roots styles into timeless, personally-charged music. Armed with a persuasive voice, a vivid songwriting skill and an instinctive mastery of several instruments, Greene has carved out a unique musical niche, and the album marks another creative landmark in his already compelling body of work.

Produced by Los Lobos member and frequent Greene collaborator Steve Berlin, Back to Birth underlines Greene's remarkable evolution as a performer and writer. With such new compositions as "Silver Lining," "Trust Somebody," "Now I Can See For Miles," and the stirring title track, the artist's distinctive melodic sensibility is matched with thoughtful, introspective lyrics that confront some profound philosophical issues with plainspoken eloquence.

"Musically, this album is kind of a return to the simplicity of the records that I started with, although I feel like I have a much better idea of what I'm doing now," Greene observes. "I think the lyrics are the part that have really evolved. A lot of these songs explore the notion of a cyclical existence, and the sense that life goes in a circle. I want the songs to come from a place that's meaningful to me, but I also want to keep them as simple and direct as I can. I look at old blues songs, or Hank Williams songs, and they're so simple and direct but they can convey some pretty deep ideas."

Although Back to Birth is Greene's first new solo release in five years, he's hardly been idle. In fact, he's spent much of the past few years engaging in a series of collaborative musical adventures that have teamed him with several notable veterans.

In 2013, Greene joined the reunited Black Crowes as lead guitarist on their worldwide tour, and the following year released the self-titled debut album of supergroup Trigger Hippy, which Greene is a member of along with Joan Osborne and Crowes drummer Steve Gorman. Greene continues to be a frequent member of Grateful Dead bassist Phil Lesh’s touring ensemble Phil Lesh & Friends, for which he has contributed lead guitar and vocals since 2007. Greene also toured as part of WRG, an acoustic trio with the Grateful Dead's Bob Weir and Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson, and he performed with Levon Helm as part of Helm's fabled Midnight Ramble shows.

The same qualities that attracted such legendary figures to work with Greene are prominent throughout Back to Birth, which Greene and producer Berlin cut at Portland's Supernatural Sound with a sympathetic crew of mostly jazz-steeped players, with Greene stretching out on a number of instruments, including guitar, piano, organ and drums.

"This is the third album I've done with Steve," he says. "I've known him for about 12 years, and he's really good at challenging me and getting it out of me. We know each other well enough at this point that we can be blunt with each other, and he'll tell me that I'm full of it if that's what I need to hear."

The musical passion and creative integrity that drive Back to Birth have been constants in Jackie Greene's musical life from the start. While growing up in Northern California, he taught himself to play piano and guitar. His musical reference points shifted radically when, at the age of 14, he ran across a cache of his parents' vintage rock, country, blues and R&B LPs in the family's basement.

Still in his teens and inspired by his discoveries, Greene began writing songs and performing them at a local coffeehouse while recording his compositions in his makeshift garage studio and burning CDRs to sell at his gigs. He saved the money he made selling those discs to fund his debut album, the self-produced, self-released Rusty Nails. Despite being a D.I.Y. release with minimal promotion, the disc received substantial regional attention from fans and press alike.

His popularity led to a deal with a local independent label, which released his second album, Gone Wanderin', in late 2002. The disc won considerable national attention, leading to a series of national tours opening for the likes of B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Susan Tedeschi, Huey Lewis, Mark Knopfler and Taj Mahal.

Greene continued to win critical acclaim and expand his fan base with 2004's Sweet Somewhere Bound and 2006's American Myth. In 2007, Greene began moonlighting with Phil Lesh and Friends, while continuing his own musical evolution with his own releases Giving Up the Ghost and Till the Light Comes, released in 2008 and 2010, respectively.

"The musicians that I really admire and try to emulate are the ones who have the whole package: they're great songwriters, great singers and great instrumentalists, and they have a vibe about them that's real," he states, adding, "When I go to make a record, I'm not thinking about where I can fit in a bunch of guitar solos. I'm thinking, 'What does this song feel like? What's it saying?' So my goal, when writing a song or making a record, is to find the core of that emotional experience and convey that."

Although he's already racked up a multitude of impressive musical achievements, Greene isn't one to look back. Instead, he continues to look to the future - and looks forward to getting back on the road to bring Back to Birth's soulful songcraft to the loyal, wildly diverse fan base that he's built through talent, vision and hard work.

"I still plan on making a lot of different kinds of records in the future, but I can't tell you what they're going to sound like, because I really have no idea," he asserts. "All I can do is write songs and make music as honestly as I can. That's what I believe people appreciate about what I do. They trust me to be honest with them, and I'd never want to abuse that trust."
Jeff Chimenti
Jeff Chimenti
Jeff Chimenti (born October 21, 1968) is an American keyboardist, best known for his ongoing work with RatDog. He is also a member of the post-Grateful Dead bands The Dead and Furthur.[1][2]

A native of the San Francisco Bay area, Chimenti began playing piano when he was four and he studied formally from the age of seven to around the time he finished high school. Once he graduated from high school, he began playing in bands around the Bay area. He played in local jazz bands as well as Les Claypool's Frog Brigade; he's also played back-up for pop acts such as En Vogue.

He was playing in Dave Ellis's jazz quartet when Ellis was hired to play saxophone in Ratdog. Ellis informed him that Ratdog was also looking for a new keyboardist. Chimenti was hired and played his first show 28 May 1997.

Recently Chimenti has been on tour with Ratdog and is scheduled to perform with Phil Lesh and Friends.
Wally Ingram
Wally Ingram
Wisconsin-born percussionist Wally Ingram is the rock world's version of Kevin Bacon & there aren't too many degrees of separation between him and just about every star on stage over the past decade or so. A frightening battle with cancer forced Wally to step away from a magical time on the road with Eric Burdon and the Animals but he's back, healthy, happy and soaring after a massive outpouring of love and support from family, fans and friends and again playing percussion with longtime friend Sheryl Crow on the world tour in support of her incredible new Detours CD.

If ever there were a drummer in demand enough to be cloned, it would be Wally! He's been a favorite of everyone from Sheryl and Eric Burdon to Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, David Lindley (with whom he and fans alike enjoyed a long collaboration), James Taylor, Warren Zevon, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Bruce Hornsby, Shawn Colvin, Jennifer Wanres, John Trudell, Tracy Chapman, Crowded House and was one of the members of the popular Grammy-nominated band Timbuk3.

When not on tour with any one (or two!) of those legendary artists, Wally revels in playing with his good friends Dave Schools, Jerry Joseph and Danny Dziuck in Stockholm Syndrome and also with his Alektrophobia partner Eric McFadden.

Wally has toured &/or recorded with the following amazing musicians:

Oteil Burbridge
Two-time Grammy winning bassist Oteil Burbridge has been in the music business touring and recording for over three decades. His first step into the national spotlight came in 1991 when he became a founding member of the Aquarium Rescue Unit featuring Col. Bruce Hampton, a cult classic that has stood the test of time. That led to his membership in the classic rock group The Allman Brothers Band. Since 1997, his work with the band has earned him two Grammy nominations for best rock instrumental, in 2003 and in 2004. Over the years, Oteil has shared the stage with rock and blues legends such as Eric Clapton, Carlos Santana, Levon Helm, Taj Mahal, Buddy Guy, Pinetop Perkins, Hubert Sumlin, Billy Gibbons, Chuck Leavell, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Johnny Winter, Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow and Trey Anastasio. In 2012, Oteil received a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award for his 15 year contribution to the Allman Brothers Band as the longest running bassist in the band's history.
special guest Papa Mali
Best known as the 7 Walkers (featuring Bill Kreutzmann and George Porter Jr.) frontman, Papa Mali puts his own distinctive spin on American vernacular music and it shows in his live performances. Mali plays an enticing blend of blues, funk, swamp music, and soul. A second nature skill for most who call New Orleans home.

Papa Mali will be joined by Dave Berger(Amy Helm and the Handsome Strangers) on drums and Andy Hess (Govt. Mule, John Scofield) on bass.
Empire Strikes Brass
Empire Strikes Brass
Empire Strikes Brass is a completely unique, dynamic, high voltage brass band straight off the streets of Asheville, NC. The band has excited fans all over the world with their explosive energy since their formation in 2013. Empire Strikes Brass intentionally stretches the boundaries of the stereotypical brass band paradigm, fusing sounds from around the globe.

Arrangement and the writing process is always a collaborative band effort, as they take multiple genres of music and weave them together through the horn section. Diversity is what makes ESB unique. There are definite nods to Old School Funk, Ska, Southern Rock, Alt Country, Hip Hop, Boogaloo and New Orleans Jazz. Expect face melting guitar solos, soul shaking synthesizer solos, lush vocal harmonies, powerful moving drums, thick nasty bass, hypnotically rhythmic keys and wall-to-wall horn power. Very few brass bands are able to fuse as many styles and array of technique into their work, but Empire Strikes Brass makes it happen again and again.

ESB is thrilled to announce the release of its debut album, Theme For A Celebration, dropping Friday, February 3, 2017. The album “celebrates” the band’ s love for brass instrumentation while drawing inspiration from different musical styles and influences. Throughout the band’ s evolution, Empire Strikes Brass has developed its own unique sound that evolved from a traditional New Orleans Brass band to a ‘ BrassFunkRock’ band with no limitations. They can share a world of high-energy music in one setting that is packed full of flavor.

In 2016 they played multiple festivals, had the pleasure of having Warren Haynes sit in with them at New Mountain Amphitheater in Asheville, celebrated the life of Dizzy Gillespie for the fourth year in a row in his hometown of Cheraw, SC, for the South Carolina Jazz and Heritage Festival, co-billed with Dr. John & Lettuce and even paraded hundreds of folks to a secret stage late night at the Big What? Festival. Empire Strikes Brass is now primed to take things to the next level on the national and international scenes with their eclectically evolved sound.
