    On a lovely 1987 afternoon in Cupertino, California - at Guitar Player magazine's 20th anniversary celebration - Mark and Greta and the Frets magazine and GPI staff had the pleasure of jamming onstage with Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead. (Jerry was on GP's advisory board.) As we recall, we played about a half-hour set that included Grateful Dead and Beatles tunes. Left to right: Greta Pedersen, David Sweet, Mark Hanson, Phil Hood, Elisa Welch, Jerry Garcia, Roger Siminoff, Joe Verri (behind on bass), Jim Hatlo.

    Greg and Margie Mirken loaned this 19th-century Martin to Mark for an afternoon. Had to leave it there at the end of the day - too bad! Attire courtesy of the Sierra Nevadas in February.

    Mark gave a concert in the acoustic room at Chicago Music Exchange on November 9, 2012. It was great fun, and what a sound in that room! Notice Elvis peering over Mark's shoulder. He's smiling, so hopefully he approved!
