Kadlecik initially linked up with Melvin Seals & JGB for a run of fall dates earlier this year, replacing former guitarist Zach Nugent after his departure from the group. At the time of the lineup change, the band explained,

Our band and the music have evolved over the years. We feel now, it’s the best its been in a very long time. Zach Nugent contributed to that and we thank him for the last few years. As the men who came before him, we don’t doubt he will succeed in the telling of his own story…channeling the man we all love so much.

The band, along with its new permanent guitar player, will hit the road for a run of winter and spring tour dates in 2020 beginning on March 4th in Rochester, NY and continuing throughout the month and into April, with select dates in May and June also included.
