Mickey Hart Band
New York city, NY
January 8, 2012
Mickey Hart assembled quite the outfit for his most recent, albeit brief, run. Gathering up friends Dave Schools, Crystal Monee Hall, Ben Yonas,Gawain Matthews, INKX Herman Sikiru Adepoju and Tim Hockenberry, the eclecticism of the ensemble ranges from Broadway stardom (Monee Hall) to a master of the talking drum (Adepoju), a guy who tours alongside an Australian pop star (Matthews) and, well… Dave Schools. Then there is, of course, Hart himself who is — aside from being a Grateful Dead member and living legend– a literal professor of transformational drumming and exploratory percussion.
For more on the band, see the video — as well as a limited time offer to receive ten tracks from The Mickey Hart Collection — below the photo gallery.
Midway through the eight date tour, the cast of players made a stop at New York’s Highline Ballroom and judging from Mickey’s tweet came post-show: “Jerry [Garcia] would love, just LOVE, this band”; it is clear that the gig made for an amazing night for those fortunate enough to be in attendance.
