DeadBeat And Mark Karan Team Up For A Series Of Gigs To Fight Oral Cancer!

Over the last few months, DeadBeat (Your Grateful Dead party band) and Mark Karan (The Other Ones, Bob Weir’s Rat Dog) have performed three concerts to benefit the Oral Cancer Foundation and the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. The gigs, in Boston, MA; Dover, NH; and Westerly, RI raised $7500 for the Oral Cancer Foundation and $5000 for oral cancer research at Dana Faber Cancer Institute.

This is the second time Mark has teamed up with DeadBeat to support the fight against oral cancer, the first time being a benefit “Sneaker Ball” in Boston in 2011 which raised $93,000 for Dana Faber’s Oral Cancer Unit.

This is a cause near and dear to both Mark Karan and DeadBeat’s drummer Joe Pulitano, as they are both oral cancer survivors.

Check out an amazing song Mark wrote about his experience called “Walk Through The Fire”.
