The Musikfest Café lineup includes Bethlehem-born guitarist Steve Kimock, best known for co-founding the psychedelic rock ensemble Zero and touring with Grateful Dead spinoffs The Other Ones and RatDog. Kimock will share the stage with his son John Kimock, an accomplished drummer who has toured with Mike Gordon of Phish; bassist Rob Mercurio of Galactic; guitarist and vocalist Cris Jacobs of The Bridge; and trumpet player/vocalist Jen Hartswick and trombonist/vocalist Natalie Cressman from the Trey Anastasio Band.
Also rocking the Musikfest Cafe on May 26 is DSB: A Tribute to Journey.
