John Kadlecik’s Fellowship of the Wing
October 7 • 7:00 pm• $22 – $25
On Sunday, October 7, the Community Center for the Performing Arts proudly welcomes John Kadlecik’s Fellowship of the Wing to the WOW Hall.
Founding member of Dark Star Orchestra who has performed with Phil Lesh & Friends and Furthur, John Kadlecik is a singer, songwriter and musician who can play most string instruments. John has been performing improvisation-oriented shows regularly since the late 1980’s and touring nationally for the last 20 years. His work also includes several studio releases of original music, and he is currently touring with his own group, The Fellowship of the Wing, with Todd Stoops on keyboards, Reed Mathis on bass and Jay Lane on drums. Mingling originals, Grateful Dead covers and many other unique covers, The Fellowship of the Wing is sure to take you on an epic journey! 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 set-lists of The Grateful Dead. Originally started as a side-project house band, “DSO” rapidly became a nationally touring act. In 2009, John departed from Dark Star Orchestra to join Furthur, with original Grateful Dead members Phil Lesh and Bob Weir, filling arenas and headlining festivals. John has also been the frequent lead guitar player for Phil Lesh and Friends. Reed Mathis is a bass player who is best known as a former member of Tea Leaf Green. The Bay Area rooted player has also notably worked with Grateful Dead members Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann. He played with Steve Kimock Band, and was a founding member of Tulsa progressive jazz band Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey. Todd Stoops has proved himself as one of the most unique musicians in the live music scene. He’s played with countless bands and artists, including RAQ, Kung Fu and Oktopus. Jay Lane, a drummer from the San Francisco Bay Area, is a founding member of Furthur, as well as the Golden Gate Wingmen, Bob Weir‘s RatDog, Scaring the Children, Jay’s Happy Sunshine Burger Joint, and the hip hop/jazz fusion band Alphabet Soup.
