Melvin Seals & JGB with special guest John Kadlecik Announced for LOCKN' 2015

Apr 18, 2015

ANNOUNCEMENT! LOCKN' Festival is happy to welcome Melvin Seals and JGB with special guest John Kadlecik (Musician). Seals has been on a mission to keep the music of Jerry Garcia's 'other' band alive since 1996. As a long time Hammond B3 soul / R&B / gospel / rock master, Melvin chalked up 18 years under his belt with Jerry. Melvin is perfectly suited to curate the rich catalog of originals and covers and keep the music alive and well. A top notch set of musicians and singers round out the band to create a huge, joyful sound. John Kadlecik, of Dark Star Orchestra and Furthur fame, adds even more of the Jerry flavor to JGB.
