NO ALBUM REVIEW THIS WEEK!!!!

Unfortunately, I have been unable to download an album for a review this week, so I am going to cancel this week’s review and will focus on next week’s. I am a little relieved, considering I wasn’t necessarily feeling any of the albums, this week. I am a huge fan of Mike Dillon’s and can truly appreciate the inventiveness of Snarky Puppy, but wasn’t feeling analytical enough for jazz. I was considering the new releases from either Travis and Rogue Wave, and was leaning toward the latter. I guess we’ll never know. Check-in tomorrow for the list of new releases for the first Friday of May. That’s What I Know, So That’s What I Know!!

NEDFEST 18 BOASTS AN INITIAL LINE-UP THAT ALREADY RIVALS YEARS PAST!!

I decided that I had waited long enough to post about the early line-up announcements for Ned Fest 18, up in Nederland, just west of Boulder in the Flatirons. My wife and I have attended this fairly intimate mountain festival for nine years, and have been fortunate enough to see Dr. John, Sam Bush, Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, David Grisman Quintet, Leftover Salmon, The Motet, Elephant Revival and many more, on the Ned Fest stage. This year’s three day festival could possibly be hosting one of the best line-ups in the festivals history, even though there are still a few acts to be released, including a headliner slot.

A few weeks ago, Ned Fest made its first Facebook posting about this year’s line-up, letting us know that Kyle Hollingsworth from The String Cheese Incident will be bringing his band to Nederland for the first of two main stage sets on Friday, August 26. Then, about a week later, they revealed that Sunday evening’s headliner would be Denver’s own Paper Bird. Things were pretty quiet for a couple of weeks, until last week when they revealed that pedal steel giant, Roosevelt Collier would be bringing his Colorado Get Down featuring The String Cheese Incident’s, Billy Nershi, to the Ned Fest stage, in the middle of the day on Saturday, August 27. At the beginning of this week, it was unveiled that Melvin Seals & JGB would be bringing their sweet soul rocking sounds to this year’s fest on Saturday. All these announcements were awesome, but the icing on the cake so far, has to be the announcement of Saturday’s headliner, the legendary Taj Mahal Trio. Besides these incredible acts, the Sunday of Ned Fest starts with some local youth putting their talent and the funds from this non-profit festival to good use on the Ned Fest stage.

The Kyle Hollingsworth Band has been The String Cheese Incident keyboardist’s side project for many years and has performed a couple of times at the mountain fest. The band is an excellent vehicle for Kyle’s original compositions and some eclectic covers, not to mention some superb improvisation.

Paper Bird is a Denver-based old-timey harmonious folk sextet, that has been performing nationally for several years, with a new album being produced by music legend, John Oates. They will close out this year’s festival with the gentle beauty of their mountain meadow sound, at 6 p.m. on Sunday.

Roosevelt Collier is a pedal steel guitar player, who was a member of the gospel group, The Lee Boys. For the last few years, Roosevelt has found himself on stages with the likes of Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe and more, but most recently, Roosevelt’s Colorado Get Downs have featured everyone from banjoist Andy Thorn (Leftover Salmon), dobro player Andy Hall (The Infamous Stringdusters) to members of The Motet and more. The String Cheese Incident’s Billy Nershi, has been a recent participant in the Get Downs and will be joining Roosevelt at Ned Fest on Saturday for the 4 p.m. slot.

Melvin Seals was the keyboardist for the Jerry Garcia Band for about fifteen years before Jerry’s death, but Melvin has managed to continue the band in his memory, with several line-up changes, while remaining true to the music that Jerry loved outside of the Grateful Dead. I have seen Melvin and company, several times and have always thoroughly enjoyed the experience, especially the couple of times I have seen them at Ned Fest. This Ned Fest favorite will take to the stage at 6 p.m. on Saturday, August 27.

The big announcement up to this point has to be the addition of Saturday night’s headliner, the legendary Taj Mahal. Taj has been making music for decades and unlike many artists that are constantly borrowing from the blues, Taj is continuously giving back to the blues with a better understanding of the universality of the music. Though his music is usually considered to be blues, he is a true proponent of music from every corner of the planet. I have had the pleasure of seeing Taj live a couple of times, and am tickled at another opportunity to see this man perform, especially in such a wonderful setting.

Ned Fest 2018 three day passes are available now for $135, until the weekend of the festival, when those will go up a bit. They have also just released $55 tickets for just Saturday with single day tickets for Friday and Sunday, going on sale soon!! That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY  LISTENING!!!! 😉

THE JOHN KADLECIK BAND BEGINS COLORADO RUN WITH AN EAR-BURNER AT HODI’S HALF NOTE!!

Last night was the first of three nights that the John Kadlecik Band are playing in our damp state. Originally the show was slated to have an opening set by Whiskey Tango, but when I arrived to Hodi’s around 9:45 p.m., I found out that there was no opener and that John K. and company had already been on stage for a song or two. They were near the end of  the Jerry Garcia staple “They Love Each Other” which sounded remarkable. I found out that they had opened with the Motown classic “How Sweet It Is (To Be Loved By You)”. The quartet pulled-off “Sister Smile” from one of John’s earliest projects called Hairball Willie. It was excellent with some country-Dead flavor for that southwestern kick. The sweet keywork and tasty guitar, made “Lazy River Road” a hammock of amazing memories. One of the show’s highlights was when bassist, Klyph Black took lead vocals on a stunning rendition of Jefferson Airplane’s “Good Shepherd”, which provided some impressive organ and stellar guitar by John. They delved into John’s more than a decade old project called The Mix with the electric-folk feel of “Upon The Lowland Sea”. Then John went back in his repertoire from a couple of decades ago, with the Dead-Phish, early 90’s island jam feel of “Seen Love”. A rousing but unsurprising version of The Grateful Dead’s “Deal” ended the spectacular first set.

After about a half an hour set break, the band wasted no time getting into the second set with a slower “Shakedown Street”, that soon built to a huge jam. The foursome put an excellent reggae groove on Van Morrison’s “It Stoned Me”. The group played a song I didn’t know, followed by the Garcia-Hunter flavor of “It’s Alright”, which was full of a killer “Dark Star” jam. Kadlecik’s take on “Don’t Let Go” was still a psychedelic vehicle, but was much shorter than many versions that I have heard. That was followed by a groovy version of Bob Dylan’s “She Belongs To Me”, including some steel guitar sounds, to drive the Americana vibe, home. John invoked the spirit of Garcia on a wonderful “I’ll Take A Melody”, which was followed by an explosive “I Know You Rider”, with the keyboardist, taking a verse, on the vintage tune. Though John had thanked the crowd and the stage had gone dark, the band didn’t leave the stage before breaking into another Dylan number, “When I Paint My Masterpiece”, that had a little taste of dreamy mandolin to it. The guys left the stage, but returned, to a loud stationary crowd, seemingly surprised that we wanted more. After a minute to discuss, the quartet ended the night in phenomenal fashion with an extremely danceable, “After Midnight”, that ended up stretching the show to about three hours of music.

I have been seeing and hearing John Kadlecik for about twenty years, and have never ceased to be awed by his guitar skill, as well as his vocal similarity to Jerry Garcia. The John Kadlecik Band is no exception. Between the originals and several live staples from both Jerry Garcia’s and the Grateful Dead’s repertoire, the music kept everyone on their toes with a loyalty to the legacy of the greats, while adding adventurous explorations to the mix. Besides his extraordinary playing, John really put his vocal prowess on full display, last night. With two more shows left in Colorado, I have to highly recommend that anyone who loves the styles of music that make the jam scene so incredible, either check-out the John Kadlecik Band at the Oriental Theatre in Denver, tonight, or tomorrow night at the Fox Theatre in Boulder. JKB may not be a straight-up Dead tribute band, but there is no denying the amazing music that pours in rivers from these exceptional musicians.

SET I: How Sweet It Is, They Love Each Other, Sister Smile, Lazy River Road, Good Shepherd, Upon The Lowland Sea, Seen Love, Deal

SET II: Shakedown Street, And It Stoned Me, ? , It’s Alright*, Don’t Let Go, She Belongs To Me, I’ll Take A Melody, I Know You Rider, When I Paint My Masterpiece

ENCORE: After Midnight

THE JOHN KADLECIK BAND MAKES A THREE NIGHT STOP IN THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN STATE!!

About a month and a half ago, I had published a post about the John Kadlecik Band’s Colorado run at the end of April. Well, it is the end of April and the John Kadlecik Band will start their shows in our state, in a couple of days. Singer, guitarist, violinist and songwriter John Kadlecik was a face on the scene in the Chicago jamband world back in the 90’s. He played with Hairball Willie and Uncle John’s Band, playing originals and Grateful Dead covers. Then in the late 90’s he was part of the inception of the ground-breaking Grateful Dead cover band, Dark Star Orchestra, playing full shows that the Dead had done during their thirty year career. Near the end of the first decade of the new millennium, John became a guitarist/ vocalist with Furthur, along-side Grateful Dead members Bob Weir and Phil Lesh. With Furthur, Kadlecik really gave Deadheads their fix of Jerry Garcia, both in his playing and in his singing style. More recently, he has been fronting his own band, as well as playing as part of Golden Gate Wingmen, along with Reed Mathis, Jeff Chimenti and Jay Lane. John will bring his band to Fort Collins on Thursday for the first night of the Colorado run, at Hodi’s Half Note. On Friday the band will be playing at the Oriental Theatre in Denver. The John Kadlecik Band will end its run in our state on Saturday, at  the Fox Theatre in Boulder. John’s sets are a mix of originals, Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia tunes, as well as a variety of other covers. To give you a taste of what to expect from the John Kadlecik Band, I am including a couple videos, which should make the decision to go see them much easier. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

The first full week of May will provide music fans with some good live music to hear. The list isn’t as long as some other weeks, but with the first batch of Red Rocks shows next week, the lists should be longer as we get closer to the summer months. As usual, I have marked the shows I recommend with an * after the venue’s name. For more shows coming to the Front Range over the next several months check-out the Coming Attractions page. The Festival Time is a pretty complete look at festivals within about a day’s drive. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉
