FREDERICK, Md. - Dark Star Orchestra will pay homage to the Grateful Dead on Friday at Weinberg Center for the Arts in Frederick. The seven-member tribute band will perform a set list based on one of the Dead's many shows, said Dark Star frontman John Kadlecik, the lead guitarist who sings Jerry Garcia's parts. While not divulging which songs Dark Star would perform, Kadlecik said the group's set lists were renditions of past Grateful Dead shows. Formed in 1997, Dark Star bills itself as a tribute band that doesn't perform songs note-for-note like Grateful Dead did - though Dark Star draws from the Dead's set lists to structure concerts, Kadlecik said.

The first time Rob Barraco saw The Grateful Dead in concert, he was 15. By then, he had had his sights set on a career of music. By the time he was 6, Barraco was already playing both the keyboard and guitar. Music followed him throughout school. After receiving a Bachelor of Music from the State University of New York-New Paltz, Barraco embarked on a career many musicians would envy - a life as a working professional. "I've been pretty much making a living from music since college," Barraco said during a telephone interview from his Long Island home.

Screwing up the accent is sinful, explained Mark Benson, "John Lennon" in Beatles tribute band 1964: The Tribute, during a recent phone interview about their upcoming gig in Frederick, Md. "You can't get up there with the right guitar, the right boots, the right suit, the right haircut and say 'Howdy, we gon' play ya'll some Beatles,'" said Benson, 54, days after 1964's show at Carnegie Hall. "That's why people don't see tribute bands," he said. Tribute artists have it hard, no matter how good the sound, no matter how talented the musicians.
