With 12 years spent as the Dark Star Orchestra's lead guitarist, great gigs supporting Bob Weir, Phil Lesh and Furthur, and spots here and there with Melvin Seals, Greg Anton, & others, John's definitely got the chops. His band (Waynard Scheller on keys, Klyph Black on bass, and Nathan Graham on drums) rolls through the area for shows in Charlotte on Thursday and Asheville on Friday. We're opening WNCW's Wednesday night Jar of Jam a bit early this week!
