“Grateful Blues” Feat. Catfish John & Mark Karan

Born out of the love and inspiration of their favorite Band, Catfish John is a collective of serious players looking to express their affection and respect for the music of The Grateful Dead. Jeff Orr and his outfit are artists giving a unique take on the music of The Grateful Dead. Catfish John performs raucous, intuitive, wide-open jams, with stunning guitar and tight vocal harmonies that compliment and complete their big full sound. They will be joined by Mark Karan who has anchored the Lead Guitar slot for “Grateful Dead” member Bob Weir and his Ratdog Band the past 13 years. Mark's soulful blues-based vocal styling and inspired guitar work meld with his remarkably creative and responsive playing in a passionate delivery of the psychedelic side of Americana. Together they assuredly embody the song and communicate the emotional spirit of one of America's most amazing bands, The Grateful Dead.
