In La Kesh

In La Kesh

Established in March of 2013, IN LA KESH brings a seasoned lineup of Chicago-scene musicians and a massive repertoire of original and cover material. Perhaps most easily described as a "jamband", IN LA KESH pulls from a variety of influences. Known not only for their countless original tunes, you can also hear IN LA KESH covering The Grateful Dead, Jerry Garcia Band, Ween, Pink Floyd, The Band, and other "kind" music extensively. Don't expect the same show twice.

IN LA KESH has already played many notable venues around Chicagoland such as Martyrs, Durty Nellie's, Abbey Pub, and Mojoes while also making appearances on several regional festival bills (Nippersink Music Festival, Rossaroo Music Festival, Cosmic Railroad's Family Gathering, Mr. Blotto's Blottumnal Equinox and Mars Hotel festivals). Previously, IN LA KESH also held a weekly Wednesday night at Mackey's Hideout in McHenry, IL for over 9 months, and currently hold a Thursday night residency at Windy City Inn in Chicago, IL. Rumors of a potential first record have been tossed around for mid- 2015.

"A great part of the changes has to do with
The shift in consciousness
And, what if, for a moment, we took the place of the others?
What if I were you, and you were me...
...Just for a moment.
Think about the other before acting, before responding...
...First, think about others
Inlakesh, is the name it is called...
...and the Mayans left this secret for us, among others
The meaning of Inlakesh, is to take another person's place
It ´s about understanding another person before taking action.
The world needs to apply Inlakesh, I am you and you are I
Whenever there ´s a doubt in you, repeat:
Inlakesh, I am you and you are I
Get in the other person´s place, and then go ahead with your decision
Inlakesh ... repeat it endlessly
And transmit the concept by helping others during the shift."
