The Wood Brothers Cancel Tonight’s Show At The Fillmore In San Francisco Due To Illness
Tomorrow’s Show—The Second Of A Two Night Run At The Fillmore—Still Planned
The Wood Brothers have been forced to cancel tonight’s show at The Fillmore in San Francisco due to illness. It was the first of a two night stand at the legendary Bay Area venue. All ticket purchases are fully refundable. Saturday evening’s performance remains scheduled as planned. The band has released the following statement:
Unfortunately the show tonight in San Francisco has been cancelled. Oliver Wood is sick and has been struggling to sing. Those of you who saw the show in Los Angeles last night witnessed this first hand! While it was a wonderful show and the audience was incredibly supportive, Oliver barely made it through. He’s seeing a doctor now and resting and we’ll be back in business tomorrow night at the Fillmore! Tickets will be refunded at the point of purchase. We’ll make it up to you SF! Thank you for understanding.

For what it cost and what it was worth – it was an enjoyable experience.
Certainly far from mind being blown – but JK can give an interested listener a lift.
I wasn’t distracted by his occasional use of synth (piano patch on Watching the Wheels) but I will add that being a solo act and depending heavily on an iPad detracts from my opinion of any musician (and I’m guilty of it myself). It suggests lack of ownership of the music, but JK is in essence a cover artist (even though he did play a few of his own songs) so this is the default reality.
All that said – I liked his confidence, his taste in most of the songs covered and his spirit and I still say F the nay sayers.
JK is alright with me.

PHOTO GALLERY and SETLIST: KIMOCK Live Session w special guest Bob Weir,
and a David Bowie tribute,
at Sweetwater Mill Valley Sunday 1.17.2016
Steve Kimock guitar vocals, Bobby Vega bass, John Morgan Kimock drums, Leslie Mendelson guitar vocals keyboards, and Skyler Kimock on vocals for Space Oddity.
Bob Weir joined in on guitar and sang Maggie’s Farm, and sat in on Fingernail Boogie.
One of the things that I really like about the Sweetwater Music Hall is that many of the musicians that I love are comfortable taking their new projects for a test run there.
Sunday night, 1/17/2016 we were treated to the first show of the latest Steve Kimock and John Morgan Kimock project. This show was mostly seated, and the stage was set to make you feel like you were invited into Steve’s living room. The new music was very, very good, and Bob Weir dropped in for a few songs.
A highlight of the night was when Steve’s son Skyler, who was celebrating his twelfth birthday, came on stage and as a tribute to the late David Bowie, led the band and audience in a beautiful sing-along of ‘Space Oddity’!
It’s always great seeing what Steve has got up his sleeve, and I think this band may have have some legs. Good music, good friends, and a respectful audience filled with Kimock fans, not a bad way to spend a rainy Sunday evening!

The Wood Brothers are touring to support their new studio album, Paradise (Honey Jar Records/Thirty Tigers), which recently debuted at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Heatseekers Albums Chart. The cross-country U.S. run brings them to San Franciscofor two nights at The Fillmoreas part of the West Coast leg of their tour. The band will headline this legendary venue on Friday, January 22 and Saturday, January 23.
Dubbed “masters of soulful folk” by Paste, The Wood Brothers released their debut studio album, Ways Not To Lose, on Blue Note in 2006. You’d be forgiven at the time for expecting it to be something of a side project. Bassist Chris Wood already had legions of devoted fans for his incomparable work as one-third of Medeski Martin & Wood, while his brother Oliver Wood toured with Tinsley Ellis before releasing a half-dozen albums with his band King Johnson. Almost a decade later and with drummer Jano Rix added as a permanent third member, it’s become quite clear that The Wood Brothers is indeed the main act.
Paradise follows the band’s acclaimed 2013 release The Muse, which was recorded almost entirely live in Zac Brown’s Southern Ground studio. Hailed previously by the New York Times for their “gripping” vocals and by the LA Times for their “taught musicianship,” the live setting proved to be a remarkable showcase for the brothers’ live chemistry and charismatic magnetism. Taking a different approach to their sixth studio album, the decision to record in Nashville was no coincidence, as Paradise marks the first album written with the entire band living in Music City.
The collection explores themes of longing and desire and the ways in which the pursuit of fulfillment can keep it perpetually out of our reach. It’s a sophisticated piece of work, but also their most rocking effort to date, with Chris Wood playing electric bass on tracks for the first time and Oliver offering an abundance of stinging electric and slide guitar leads. Recorded at Dan Auerbach‘s Easy Eye studio in Nashville, Paradise presents the latest chapter in the ongoing evolution of a band—and a family—navigating the joy and challenges of a life in music.

Photographer Caleb Miller wanted to share these treasures with us!
“I was digging around and realized that some of these shots haven’t ever been circulated
so here’s a bunch from the 08-30-1987 JGB show @ the Greek Theatre in Berkeley.”
“One of My favorites from the Carousel Ballroom from 48 years ago back in 1968. This beautiful poster, featuring Ben Franklin as the central image, was used to promote a one night only dance/concert that featured the Grateful Dead. It fell on Ben’s Birthday to make things even more festive (oh sure)! Also on the bill for this show was Quicksilver Messenger Service. All for just $2.50 at the door like emoticon .
The design by rock artist called Gut – one of the Hell’s Angels and a friend of the Dead – is one of the true classics in the world of psychedelic posters. This is a difficult piece to find in top condition as most have numerous tack holes and many have tape on them. Still, it’ll take more than a Franklin to score one in almost any condition. Light show that night was provided by Jerry Abrams “Headlights”. A slightly over sized “Poster From The Past” that was printed only once ….along with a small 5″X7″ card.
By the way, this IS a full view of the poster, it’s NOT cut off on the sides!
