Isn’t Mark Karan better known as a member of Ratdog than for the few shows he played with Phil Lesh & Friends?

Karan has a nice tone, instrumentally and vocally…should be fun times for all! He does a nice take on Easy Wind…here’s a link to a sbd of one of his shows with The Schwag featuring Melvin Seals and Stu Allen… enjoy!
