Bassist Kevin Rosen Leaving Dark Star Orchestra

BASSIST KEVIN ROSEN LEAVING DARK STAR ORCHESTRA
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 then 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- time replacement.

DSO's lineup has always been in flux, with the most impactful personnel change coming when John Kadlecik departed to devote his full attention to Furthur and his own band.
