Mark Karan's Buds

A modern day classic, Karan oozes passion & rock & roll spirit, presenting his music in creative way

Mark Karan’s Buds at Rancho Nicasio Debut!
* Sunday, March 12, 5:00 pm

Mark Karan is best known for performing with the extended Grateful Dead family. For the last twelve years, he has anchored the lead guitar slot in Bob Weir & RatDog, playing hundreds of shows to thousands of fans year-round. Before crossing over into the land of the Dead, Mark worked his guitar and vocal voodoo for the likes of Dave Mason, Delaney Bramlett, the Rembrandts, Paul Carrack, Huey Lewis, Jesse Colin Young and Sophie B. Hawkins.

Mark also tours with an array of amazing musicians in his own Mark Karan’s Buds, where his soulful blues-based vocal stylings and inspired guitar work meld with the remarkably creative and responsive playing of his friends in a passionate delivery of the psychedelicized sounds of Americana.

This is where rock meets R&B and country and mixes with the soul of New Orleans… with healthy portions of reggae, folk, funk and whatever else the muse might bring.

In addition to his originals, as well as those of songwriter friends, Mark covers a range of eclectic songs from Johnny “Guitar” Watson’s You Can Stay (But the Noize Must Go) and Peter Tosh’s Don’t Look Back, to the Kinks’ Lazin’ on a Sunny Afternoon or Joe Jackson’s Fools in Love — his unique musical taste and song choices are the hallmark of these shows, and always crowd pleasers for his nationwide, loyal fanbase.

A modern day classic, Karan oozes passion and rock and roll spirit, presenting his music in creative ways that make folks perk up, dance… and maybe think a bit after the shufflin’s done.
