FREE FLOWING JAZZ,
ROCK & BLUES
Zero was founded by Steve Kimock and Greg Anton in the early 1980’s in Marin County, California. Over the years they’ve been joined by a host of musicians from the psychedelic caravan who share a common spirit. Their music is a unique mixture of free-flowing jazz, blues, and rock improvisation....the lyrics to their original vocal songs are written by Robert Hunter.
A Zero show is a musical journey that spans the spectrum from delicate ballads to blow-the-roof-off rock & roll. After nine albums and over 1300 shows, the band has become a San Francisco musical institution.
Zero has recently regrouped, reenergized and is hitting the road with Steve Kimock; guitar, Greg Anton; drums, Pete Sears; bass, Melvin Seals; Hammond B3, Hadi Al-Saadoon; trumpet, Spencer Burrows; keys & vocals with some special guests in the wings.
“Zero can put the whammy on the crowd. I've seen a lot of crowds in my life, but they can do something that I've never seen.”
~ Robert Hunter interview, The Washington Post
“Zero is like a massive group of talented musicians who melt together, then apart, then back together any number of times during each song...building a song into a living organism that writhes its way around the stage,....free-flowing electric rockin jazz/blues and something extra.”
~ Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab Review
“Zero is an original.... a wonderfully expansive tapestry of aural delights.... just plain flat-out incredible stuff.”
~ Digital Music Review
“Steve Kimock is a very good guitar player who I like a lot. He's melodic, has a sense of power, and is extremely tasty. He has a good balance of technique and soulfulness.”
~ Jerry Garcia, Guitar Player
“A Zero show is like performance art....they take the stage, kind of, a guitar plays a few notes, a piano tinkles, the bass asserts some authority, drums create a rhythm, Fierro comes in screaming from outer space and then, (a complete surprise to everyone) they’re somehow romping through a song that’s evidently been prearranged”
~ Phil Ellwood, San Francisco Examiner
“The band revolves around two remarkable musicians; guitarist Steve Kimock and drummer Greg Anton, composers of the band's music and the sparkplugs driving the band's improvisational rock.”
~ Joel Selvin, San Francisco Chronicle
