The John K Band features one of the most loved guitarists in the scene, with a mix of his musical friends playing both original music and fan favorites in a format that is a sheer pleasure for festival audiences. Already having played numerous club shows, the John K Band is ready to visit new markets and dazzle new audiences with Kadlecik's take on this well loved song book and his own original works.
While most of the bands he played with wrote their own music, in 1997 John co-founded the group Dark Star Orchestra, a band exclusively devoted to playing the well-documented actual setlists of the Grateful Dead. Originally started as a side-project house band for some of the best local deadhead musicians, "DSO" rapidly became a nationally touring band, attracting many guests to join them onstage, including John Fishman, Mike Gordon, Sam Bush, Jorma Kaukonen, John Popper, Sanjay Mishra, Tom Constanten, Vince Welnick, Bill Kreutzmann, and Bob Weir to name a few.
Three-time Grammy-winning producer Larry Campbell is a multi-instrumentalist in many genres of music, having recorded and/or toured with many artists including Elvis Costello, Emmylou Harris, Roseanne Cash, Judy Collins, Willie Nelson, Cyndi Lauper, Sheryl Crow, John Sebastian, Happy Traum, Jorma Kaukonen, David Bromberg and Eric Andersen, and Larry was a band member of Bob Dylan's Never Ending Tour from 1997-2004. Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams have toured together with the Levon Helm Band, Phil Lesh, Hot Tuna and Little Feat. In 2008 The Americana Music Association presented Campbell with their Lifetime Achievement Award for his instrumental work. Larry served as musical director and band leader for Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble concerts and produced two of Levon's Grammy-winning albums which also feature Teresa Williams (vocals and guitar; has appeared in the role of the lead singer of the Carter Family on stage and in BBC and PBS performances) and Byron Isaacs(upright bass; also performed with Bruce Springsteen, Joan Baez, Willie Nelson, Ryan Adams, Elvis Costello, Diana Krall, Emmylou Harris, Sheryl Crow and Donald Fagen).
