Willie Waldman Project

About

For Willie Waldman every gig is like a band debut. With one important exception: Every member is not only talented but vastly experienced. That is the intrigue of the Willie Waldman Project. The band is ever-changing as Waldman pulls noted musicians from all styles and geographical locations to play free form music created on the spot. This represents the true history of Jazz!

“The artists have so much freedom, It’s a cool vibe” Terry Saffold said “Waldman is a genius at bringing diverse players together”. It is always fresh and exciting, no one in the industry is doing what Waldman has accomplished” and the fans dig it.

Although Waldmans musical career began with the Chesterton High School Marching band in Chesterton, In. Waldman believes his real training began in Memphis TN. While attending Memphis State on a music scholarship, it was on Beale Street that Waldman met several musical legends that he feels groomed him for what the Willie Waldman Project is known for today.

The Willie Waldman Project is celebrating the 25th year of FreeWorld the band he co-founded in college. They received a brass note on Beale Street October 6th 2012.

John Kadlecik

About

Born on June 28, 1969 in Council Bluffs, Iowa, John Kadlecik grew up in various mid-western towns and at the age of nine, John began to study classical violin. In high school in the Chicago suburbs, John caught the rock-n-roll bug, and, on a quest to understand improvisation, began teaching himself guitar and mandolin. While still in high school, John played in several bands, as well as writing songs and learning the basics of multi-track recording.

John attended college as a music major, studying classical guitar, during which time he discovered the Grateful Dead. He fell in love with their music instantly, dropped out of college, and began playing anywhere an underage musician could find a gig. Chicago would be where he called home for the next fifteen years, playing in various original and cover bands.

In 1997 John co-founded the group, Dark Star Orchestra, a group exclusively devoted to playing the music of the Grateful Dead. Originally started as a side-project, “DSO” rapidly became a nationally touring band. During that time, John also found time for other musical projects including forming a group with Jerry Garcia Band keyboardist Melvin Seals. That group, called The Mix, went on to sign a recording contract and released a full length CD in 2004 titled: American Spring.

Then in 2009, John was asked by Phil Lesh and Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead to join them in a new band called Furthur, which toured for four years, playing many of the celebrated great venues of the United States, including Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Radio City Music Hall, and Madison Square Garden before disbanding in 2014.

Currently residing in Washington, DC, John continues to perform with Phil Lesh and Friends, as well as the DC Mystery Cats and the John Kadlecik Band.
