Grab your friend Santiago, who's in from the port of Pago Pago, and head to Martyr's in Chicago.
You could be putting on the Ritz, dancing at Kimockowitz with Steve Kimock and Dan Lebowitz.
Dan's from that band you know, a group called ALO, that you discovered in a New Orleans chateau.
Want to know a little extra? It stands for Animal Liberation Orchestra. Add it to your playlist spectra.
It's not quite like Bach, and he changes things up with Steve Kimock – not stuff you hear on the block.
Y'all into slide guitar? Kimock is like a czar. Up there, he's the star. He's calling where the shots are.
His expression might be grim, but the musicians look to him, wondering if he's going off on a whim.
Y'ins might expect a jam to go one way, but he has the final say, making you second guess it all day.
Ron Johnson's one to play the bass like a gun while smiling as dazzling as the sun and having fun.
Just when you think you know who's on bass, a girl slides into his place. Now it's Janis Wallin's space.
Sliding into the cranny, she don't need orders or a nanny, as she's from the Family Groove Company.
Wearing her signature pigtails, she sail through the scales and for 20 minutes her groovy style prevails.
Like turning the page, she slips off stage, and Ron is back to assuage, getting the audience to engage.
Of course, it would be a bummer, if we forgot the drummer, pounding like a heatwave from summer.
It's the other Kimock, John, and he's not just an add on or up there simply because he's Steve's spawn.
This cat has some style, and he is more than worth the while. He plays more with a smile than hostile.
You can tell he's logged some hours and learned from some musical powers. He blossoms like flowers.
He's all over the drum set, using techniques many had not seen yet. Good? You bet! Without a sweat.
He might look young, but look who he grew up among. Eyeball where his drumsticks swung.
He gnarls up the wood, splinters it up good, playing his heart out, in case you misunderstood.
One could only imagine the skills from his dad, secrets he taught the lad, as his playing style is rad.
Steve has played with some legends. Surely, John learned from daddy's friends. His skill transcends.
Be on the lookout for that little one. He is far from done. He has only just begun. He will stun.
Dad must be proud that his little boy has numerously wowed a crowd. He's well endowed.
Steve knows how to bring home a jam like a grand slam. His technical skills make you say, “damn!”
This guy does not chintz. He's constantly changing instruments and playing stuff fresher than mints.
He and Dan feed off each other, playing with the familiarity of a brother, careful not to smother.
Dan's voice controls the room, as they find a cover to exhume; creative licensing is not as you assume.
There's always some sort of surprise to delight the ears and eyes. It's like a sneaky disguise.
That's the fun of the project, be it an instrument you don't expect, or an awesome sounding effect.
Take liberties with the blues, like re-purposing old shoes, and catch Kimock on the Jam Cruise.
Both Kimocks play with Keller Williams, which should be stellar, as he's another fun musical feller.
