Jerry Joseph & Friends Iraq Refugee Benefit feat Steve Kimock, Dave Schools (Widespread Panic), Jeff Chimenti (Dead & Co.), Dan Lebowitz (ALO), Sikiru Adepoju, Steve Drizos, Eric McFadden, Angeline Saris (Zepparella), Queen Delphine, James Nash & more
For more than 30 years, Jerry Joseph has been strapping on a guitar and chasing down truth, understanding and soul with a tenacity and resonant skill that mark him as a hard charging kindred spirit to Joe Strummer, Warren Zevon and Patti Smith. While not a household name or critic's darling, Joseph is the archetypal musician's musician, something resoundingly clear in his live performances, as well as his studio work.
Steve Kimock has been inspiring music fans with his transcendent guitar speak, voiced through electric, acoustic, lap and pedal steel guitars for nearly four decades. His passion and devotion to performing live is matchless, and his unparalleled ability to embrace and capture his audiences is the stuff of legends. Kimock will be joined by a host of friends and surprise guests.
David Schools (Widespread Panic) keeps a wide variety of side projects going. From producing to playing in and with other bands, Dave stays busy with many eclectic endeavors such as The Stockholm Syndrome, J Mascis and The Fog, Slang, and Acetate.
Jeff Chimenti 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.
Lebo (Dan Lebowitz), a founding member of ALO (Brushfire/Universal Records), tours the world playing guitar, lap steel, pedal steel and singing. When not working with ALO, he can be seen performing with one of his bands (magicgravy, Trio Lebo) or working on recording projects in his San Francisco studio, Leboland.
James Nash is no stranger to musical diversity. As at home with Charlie Parker and Bill Monroe as he is with Django Reinhardt and Jimi Hendrix, the accomplished guitarist embraces the potential challenges of playing multiple genres with both joy and aplomb.
Nash's broad vocabulary, both as scholar and stylist, has led to a genre-bending approach that has served him well for a decade as a lead guitarist, singer, and songwriter for the eclectic and virtuosic Americana ensemble, The Waybacks. Similarly, they make him a fitting helmsman for both the electric rock 'n soul grooves of The Nomads and the daredevil acoustic escapades of The NashVillains.
Eric McFadden is a virtuoso of the six-string. He has toured the world both as a solo artist, as well as traveling with funk legend George Clinton (Parliament/Funkadelic), and rock legend Eric Burdon (The Animals). McFadden is a member of the new supergroup, T.E.N.
Sikiru Adepoju (pronounced Seek-ee-roo Ah-deh-po-joo) is a master of the talking drum and many other Yoruba percussion instruments. Born in Eruwa, Nigeria, Sikiru hails from the traditional lineage of Yoruba talking drummers culturally referred to as Ayan which means “one who has descended from drummers lineage,” and began playing under the tutelage of his father Chief Ayanleke Adepoju at the age of six. Along with his brothers Saminu and Lasisi, Sikiru accompanied the family’s talking drum ensemble for several years.
