Dead Fans Rejoice

Furthur, the latest project involving members of the Grateful Dead,  comes closest to recapturing the magic of the iconic band.  The comfort level of going there for band members and fans has everything to do with John Kadlecik. The founding member of Dark Star Orchestra, the preeminent Dead tribute band, Kadlecik manages to evoke Garcia in voice and on guitar - but comes off and sounds so true to himself on both counts you can believe he would have developed into the same musician no matter what.  No slouch compared to Garcia even when Jerry was at his best, Kadlecik takes things so far beyond what Garcia was capable of many nights in the 80's & 90's that it is easy to understand why Bob Weir and Phil Lesh are happy to take things Furthur with him.
