We are extremely excited to have the one and only Jeff Mattson of Dark Star Orchestra as our guest on No Simple Road this week as part of our lead-up to Skull & Roses Festival. Guitarist and songwriter Jeff Mattson is one of the Jam scene’s most lasting voices having taken over Long Island in The Volunteers and The Zen Tricksters then rising to national prominence with The Donna Jean Godchaux Band. Mattson has also played with Phil Lesh & Friends both before and after taking the lead guitar post at Dark Star Orchestra.
We sit down with Jeff and get right to it talking about the rigors of returning to the road, playing for parking lots, how he got the gig with Dark Star, the magick of Jerry Garcia and The Grateful Dead, Wooley Mammoths, psychedelic fun, and a whole lot more!
SONG AT THE BEGINNING OF THE INTERVIEW: “Bird Song” – Dark Star Orchestra 11/22/17 Penn’s Peak -Jim Thorpe, Pa.
