Does anybody know the names and possibly a short history about the new back-up singers in Furthur? I havent heard a word about them except that its 2 girls.
Back-up singers: Sunshine Garcia Becker http://www.myspace.com/sunshinebecker and
Zoe Ellis http://www.myspace.com/zoeellisgroup.
Sunshine is Kesey and Mountain Girl's daughter, but Jerry helped to raise her. Read more here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carolyn_Adams
Sorry, but I couldn't edit the post above, and I don't want to spread misinformation. I was wrong about Sunshine -- Sunshine Kesey is the daughter of Mtn Girl, Sunshine Garcia Becker the backup singer is unrelated to either Jerry or Kesey -- just a coincidence in names.
Here are a couple of links about Sunshine Kesey:

Thanx for the info Llobreqat!
So why is she called Sunshine Garcia Becker ? Yes, it may well be her given name, but if she is not related to Kesey or Garcia and is singing with the closest thing to a current incarnation to the Grateful Dead, I think she owes us an explanation at least. Given the context of her job, I think it is kind of misrepresenting herself to not have some type of explanation about this.
I disagree. Why in the world would anyone owe anyone else an explanation about their name? Do you think the face that "Garcia' is evidently part of her name got her the gig?

what an ridiculous comment...
Also, Zoe Ellis out, Jeff Pehrson in.
Epic pr0g bump
I personally will never forgive her for trying to fool us by using her real name. WHAT NERVE!!!
What?! She's not Jerry's daughter?! I'm never seeing this band again! We've been conned!
I thought she married Karim Garcia
Who are YOU Karim Garcia???:
"Karim García, who's Karim García? I have no respect for that guy. I don't have anything to prove to that guy. He needs to be forcing himself to come up to where I am, to my level. When you talk about Jeter, Bernie Williams, Paul O'Neill, guys like that that you really tip your hat, that you can understand. But guys like Karim García, what? So what? Who are you? Who are you Karim García to try to test Pedro Martinez, a proven player for ten years? That's what I don't understand. Why would I hit Karim García?"
STILL one of my all-time favorite retorts by an 8-time All-Star, 3-time Cy Young winner, World Series Champion, 1st ballot Hall-of-Famer re: the truly irrelevant, moot comments of a never-been anything, only way getting in the HOF will be by paying admission just like the never-played-baseball-at-all general public nobody who had something to say about (him).
Pedro is good people
