June 29th ~ Gimikk

Band Members:

James Brinker

Jimmi V



Josh Tilton

For the past decade Gimikk has been rockin' out in Des Moines and the surrounding area, earning its reputation as "The Best Party Band in Des Moines". With their high energy performance and amazing musical skills, topped off by the entertaining and charismatic persona of lead singer, James Brinker, Gimikk is sure to deliver a show unrivaled by any other local act.

Fans have faithfully followed the band as it evolved into the group of adept rockers that comprise Gimikk today. In 2003, Billy Seven harnessed a new power and inspiration after trading six strings for four. When Gimikk's enforcer plugs in, a flare uncommon amongst typical bassists is unleashed.

The group then added stealth and technical prowess to their arsenal with the addition of guitarists "Jimmi V" & "Cy Kick." Jimmi's mastery of the axe enables Gimikk to pursue the most challenging riffs. Like a skilled snake charmer, his melodies enchant listeners. Meanwhile Cy balances the other the end of the stage, often enlisting the aid of his Golden Acoustic.

In June of 2007, Gimikk acquired a vital link in the pursuit of delivering rock to the hard working men and women of Des Moines. James Brinker's experience and penchant for high energy shows is a perfect fit.

The final piece fell into place in April of 2009. Drummer and Nashville transplant, Josh Tilton, brings rhythmic skills unequaled in these parts, sure to provide the driving force needed to give you the highest quality rock experience around.

Gimikk’s repertoire includes covers from Van Halen to Nickleback and quality originals from their 2008 self released album, “Kindred Puppet.” With professional lights and sound, Gimikk is guaranteed not to disappoint. So punch out that time card, take a brew in hand and get ready to party.

Large Midgets have been around the Cedar Rapids Music Scene for decades, after taking a break in 2014, the band is back together to bring you the songs that made them one of Cedar Rapid's favorite party bands!

See you all at Union Station Bar & Grill this summer!!
