Dark Star Orchestra
Following a packed summer featuring the band’s debut at Red Rocks Amphitheater and their seventh annual Dark Star Jubilee festival, Dark Star Orchestra announces today their plans to end 2018 with a four-date Cosmic New Year’s tour, ringing in 2019 at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair, NJ. These dates announced today pair with the band’s 16-date, second-leg of their Fall Tour.
This weekend the John Kadlecik Band celebrates Jerry Garcia's birthday with a couple of shows: tonight at the Hamilton in Washington, DC, and Saturday at Bear's Picnic Music Festival in Blain, PA! This JKB run will feature Jay Lane, Benjie Porecki, and Wavy Dave and will be putting extra focus on the music of Jerry Garcia and the Grateful Dead. Feed your belly (and your head) and bring your dancing shoes!
Fresh off the heels of their Fall Tour announcement, Dark Star Orchestra today confirms details of their 7th annual Jamaican Jam In The Sand festival returning to the Jewel Paradise Cove Resort and Spa in Runaway Bay, Jamaica on January 15-19, 2019. The nights will be spent under the stars with Dark Star Orchestra, performing a full two-set show on the beach each of the four nights!
Hosting the musical memory of one of the Grateful Dead’s most beloved, historic shows, Dark Star Orchestra has pledged to recreate the July 8, 1978 performance at Red Rocks Amphitheater at the iconic venue 40 years to the day of its original performance. The band announces today that original Grateful Dead member Donna Jean Godchaux will be making a guest appearance on stage with the band at the upcoming July 8 performance.
Dark Star Orchestra is holding their seventh annual Dark Star Jubilee festival this coming Memorial Day May 25-27 at the venue which is now known as Legend Valley, in Thornville, Ohio. Back in 1993, it was known as Buckeye Lake Music Center, and on June 11, the Grateful Dead rolled into town. Nearly 25 years to the date, and at the same location, Dark Star Orchestra will be recreating the original band’s historic set during one of the night at The Jubilee in a rare, advanced announcement for the band to confirm a show they’re playing.
Dark Star Orchestra Summer Tour leads down the Road to Red Rocks and beyond as the band celebrates the Golden State in San Diego, June 22, Ojai, June 23, and Carmel-By-The-Sea on June 24. A SEVA Foundation benefit in Petaluma is next, then Sacramento, followed by a pair in Berkeley, June 29-30. After that it’s off to Red Rocks on July 8 where the band is set to recreate the epic July 8, 1978 performance on its 40th birthday.
