Also an original 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.

I've been traveling by van cross country to these shows... had a secret show at Eureka Springs, AR last friday, then these 2 great "wing" sightings along the way in Oklahoma and Texas... enjoy!

An epic 5 week cross-country trek begins in earnest today! Thank you Louisville for a great time last night! Heading by van to the Pacific Northwest for (hopefully) a trifecta of High Sierra, National Rainbow Gathering, and Oregon Country Fair!

Ozarks ahead...
