John Kadlecik Band @ The Fox | Preview

Submitted by David Atchley on Thu, 01/18/2018 - 7:15 pm

Thinking you've seen the John Kadlecik Band before is like saying you've heard Jerry play, "Dark Star," before. And if you haven't seen JKB, well then, you just don't know, do you? Ever dynamic, John has long since moved from prodigy to mentor. Master of the improvisational moment, one never knows what might arise when John takes the stage, and that alone is reason enough to set foot on the hill. Mixing and matching bands like notes on his guitar, John is joined by Further's Jay Lane on drums, the ever versatile, Benjie Porecki on keys, and frequent, Terrapin Flyer, Wavy Dave Burlingame on bass, (maybe a banjo, maybe not) setting the conditions for a unique, wonder-filled, mind-enriching musical experience.
