Pioneering a daring hybrid which crosses rock energy with the sophistication and improvisational fire of jazz, Herring’s dynamic, exploratory guitar playing has been a key component of such renowned groups as the Aquarium Rescue Unit, Jazz is Dead, Project Z, and, most recently, Widespread Panic – with whom Herring plays lead guitar to this day. Much esteemed by his fellow musicians, Herring has also been called upon for stints with Phil Lesh and Friends, the Allman Brothers, and the Dead. 2009 marks the formation of the Jimmy Herring Band, featuring Herring on guitar, drummer extraordinaire Jeff Sipe (Aquarium Rescue Unit, Jazz is Dead, Shawn Lane), prolific jazz maverick Greg Osby on saxophone, multifaceted keyboardist Scott Kinsey (Tribal Tech), and the dynamic Neal Fountain on bass (Jeff Sipe, Alex Machacek, Col Bruce Hampton) The Jimmy Herring Band will be performing a wide range of material, including compositions from Herring’s long-awaited and much-acclaimed 2008 solo debut Lifeboat. In addition, there will be some cover tunes from various influential records from the 60’s and 70’s– and select favorites from the catalogs of the individual band members. Herring is understandably excited about the prospect of performing this music with this lineup over an extended period of time. “It’s a shot of adrenaline to get to play with musicians who are pushing the envelope and breaking down the walls that exist between genres of music. Each of these musicians inspires with every note they play.” Lifeboat is the debut solo album from Jimmy Herring released on Abstract Logix Music. 6/4/09 Wakarusa Music, Ozark, AK 6/5/09 Flytrap Music Hall , Tulsa, OK 6/7/09 Telluride Jazz Fest , Telluride, CO 6/9/09 Belly Up , Aspen, CO 6/10/09 Fox Theatre , Boulder, CO 6/11/09 Aggies Theatre, Ft Collins, CO 6/12/09 Cervantes Ballroom, Denver, CO 6/13/09 Cervantes Ballroon, Denver, CO 6/14/09 Urban Lounge , Salt Lake City, UT 6/16/09 Crystal Bay Club Casino , Reno, NV 6/17/09 Rio Theatre, Santa Cruz, CA 6/18/09 Regency Ballroom, San Francisco, CA 6/19/09 House of Blues, West Hollywood, CA 6/20/09 St.Rocke, Hermosa Beach, CA 6/21/09 Belly Up Tavern, Solano Beach, CA
