John Kadlecik officially joining Melvin Seals & JGB

Almost 17 years ago, back in 2003, I played my first show with Melvin Seals in Albuquerque, NM and had an absolute blast. I worked on the "Keepers of the Flame" album, and we formed a group called "The Mix" which was actually signed to a recording contract and did a full-length CD release in 2004 called American Spring (still available on Apple Music) and we toured as much as we could between Dark Star Orchestra tours until the scheduling with DSO became too difficult in 2006, and The Mix went on indefinite hiatus. Melvin and I would play sporadically for special occasions in the following years, until this past June when I was asked to fill in as special guest for the remaining shows of 2019.

Today I am pleased and honored to announce that I have been asked and agreed  to join Melvin Seals and JGB as a permanent member!  I have had a wonderful time working with this team over the last few months, and we already have some great shows to announce for 2020, including 4 shows in Hawaii February 12-15 and a full east coast/Midwest tour in March!
