Dark Star Orchestra Announces New Bassist for Permanent Role, tourdates

Skip Vangelas - New Bassist for Dark Star OrchestraFollowing the Spring departure of longtime bassist, Kevin Rosen, the Chicago-formed Dark Star Orchestra offered temporary spots to a handful of talented performers. Today, the band announces the formal, permanent bassist role goes to Skip Vangelas who is currently on tour with the band. Vangelas previously played with Dark Star Orchestra guitarist/vocalist Rob Eaton in the band Border Legion and was briefly in DSO himself in 2001.


In addition to the bassist announcement, Dark Star Orchestra this week released numerous live, soundboard recordings of the band mastered by Rob Eaton on the band’s Nugs.net / LiveDownloads.com page at http://www.livedownloads.com/live-music/3,291/Dark-Star-Orchestra-mp3-flac-downloads.html. DSO is offering a streaming version of their 17-minute plus take on ‘Turn On Your Lovelight’ recorded May 26, 2013 at the 2nd Annual Dark Star Jubilee Festival that took place at Legend Valley over Memorial Day weekend. The ‘Lovelight’ recording can be found at  https://darkstarorchestra.bandcamp.com/track/turn-on-your-lovelight-from-dark-star-jubilee-legend-valley-thornville-oh-05-26-13.
