NO FULL-TIME REPLACEMENT IN PLACE
One of JamBase users' most tracked bands, Dark
Star Orchestra, faces a major transition as bassist Kevin Rosen is
departing the tribute band that recreates Grateful Dead concerts in their entirety. It's going to be “bassist-by-
committee” to start as Skip Vengelas will play the role of Phil Lesh for DSO's next five shows, May 9 – 14. Rosen will
return for the remainder of May and his final show with the band June 1 at Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom in New
Hampshire. Then the bass duties will be transferred over to Jim Allard while DSO begins the search for a new full-
DSO's lineup has always been in flux, with the most impactful personnel change coming when John Kadlecik departed
devote his full attention to Furthur and his own band.
