He is also known by the name K-Dub when performing. Williams’ music combines elements of bluegrass, folk, alternative rock, reggae, electronica/dance,jazz, funk, and other assorted genres. He is often described as a ‘one-man jam-band’ due to his frequent use of live phrase looping with multiple instruments.
Though primarily a solo artist, Williams has toured with several bands that include Larry Keel and Natural Bridge, Yonder Mountain String Band, The String Cheese Incident, Umphrey’s McGee and Ratdog, and has frequently performed at The Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, the AllGood Music Festival, Summer Camp Music Festival, the The Rothbury Festival, and the Elysian Fields Music Festival.

John Kadlecik is a singer, songwriter, and musician based in the DC-area who can play most string instruments, but is primarily known for being a guitar-slinging sideman to Grateful Dead members Phil Lesh and Bob Weir in the band Furthur. An original member and co-founder of the group Dark Star Orchestra, John has been performing improvisationally-oriented shows regularly since the late 1980's and touring nationally for the last 20 years.
While Kadlecik is well-known for his love for playing music of the Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia, his shows offer an extensive repertoire of songs. John has been writing music and playing in bands for over three decades and has gained an appreciation for music of all kinds. From George Harrison to John Prine, from Bob Dylan to Van Morrison, John’s arrangements are both interesting and inventive. And while he enjoys paying tribute to many renowned artists, his song choices are unique and often obscure. His set lists always include several of his original songs and incorporates a diversity of musical styles, including new and innovative approaches to live-looping.
John’s work also includes several studio releases of original music, including the recently released On the Road. He is currently active with his own group, The John Kadlecik Band, as well as "supergroup" the Golden Gate Wingmen, and is an ongoing guest in Oteil and Friends, Everyone Orchestra, Keller Williams’ Grateful Gospel and occasionally, Phil Lesh & Friends.
