First of all, I should state this: After seeing these guys headline with Soulive at the Filmore in Frisco, I was converted. I had never even heard of the SKB until I found out that they were playing along-side Soulive, one of my fave groups right now. I don't hate to say this, but the SKB gave my boys a run for their money. Both are outstanding groups with very talented musicians, but Soulive(as much as I love their sound) is pretty much one dimensional compared with SKB. Soulive is more into that mid-to-late 60's funky groove trio bag(guit./organ/drums), and that's where they excel at. However, SKB is much more worldly(or Otherworldly) in their sound and approach. They have one of the best drummers around, and their bass player is sadly underrated. I would like to know if anyone else in this forum has checked them out, know about SKB, and more importantly, does anyone know anything about their bass player? If anyone does get the chance to see them in your area, DEFINITELY check out The Steve Kimock Band. You will be pleasantly surprised(and impressed).
