Mark Karan, Billy Lee Lewis, Sunshine Garcia Becker at the Sweetwater Mill Valley California 4.24.2012

Enjoy this video  featuring Furthur’s Sunshine Garcia Becker singing the Grateful Dead’s “Franklin’s Tower” with Mark Karan and Friends at the Sweetwater music hall in Mill Valley California.

Sunshine’s husband Bill Becker plays some hot bass, Danny Eisenberg gets crazy on the keyboards, and Billy Lee Lewis is killin’ it on the drums.

Mark has been playing every couple weeks at the Sweetwater, ‘Wednesday Night Live”, with a whole host of other musicians sitting in each time.  Happycat wrote  review of one of the shows where Sunshine’s Furthur singing partner Jeff Pehrson sat in, and you can read it here on
