On Saturday September 29, Jimmy Herring played Brooklyn Bowl NYC with his new band The 5 of 7. The band consists of bassist Kevin Scott, drummer Darren Stanley, guitarist and singer Rick Lollar, and Matt Slocum on keyboards.
Herring is best known for being the lead guitarist for the band Widespread Panic. He is also the founding member of Aquarium Rescue Unit and Jazz is Dead. Jimmy is a guitar legend and has played with other legendary bands like The Allman Brothers, Phil Lesh and Friends, and The Dead.
The 2 hour set started with a Miles Davis cover of "Black Satin" and continued with songs from Herring's solo career like "The Big Galoot", "Matt's Funk" and "1911". The show was also streamed live on The Relix Channel. You can see the full setlist as well as the entire show below. The show was amazing so if you like jazz infused rock and roll with heavy guitar solos, this is an absolute must.
Currently Jimmy and the 5 of 7 are in the middle of a tour that started on September 12th in Denver, CO and ends November 20th in Atlanta, GA. You can also see the remaining tour dates below.
