Mickey Hart Band Tour

With a never before seen listen – and look! – into the mind of a musician, 2013 Mickey Hart Band tour dates will feature an interesting and creative experience for fans who want to see how the former Grateful Dead drummer’s noggin acts during a live performance. Touring in support of their new album Superorganism and being opened for by Tea Leaf Trio, the latest music from Mickey Hart is focused on the captured sound of the brain, nerve cells, and synapses firing through thought. The visual aspect of these multimedia Mickey Hart Band live shows will be an in-the-moment feed of Hart’s brain activity, as he’ll be wearing an EEG cap during each show.

Nicknamed a “rhythm devil” during his time with The Dead, Hart has enlisted the help of a university professor to turn the brain, “Rhythm Central” as he calls it, into the source of of sound for his latest percussion beat box. This is not his first venture into using the body as a musical source; he recorded his unborn son Taro’s heartbeat for use in a previous album. Even if you’re not an established fan of Mickey Hart’s music now or as a member of The Grateful Dead, his philanthropic work and success in building world music makes him and his band an interesting concert to see. The Mickey Hart Band is influenced by percussion and music from all over the world and often incorporates supporting work from a deep cast of musicians. You never know what you’re going to get from a Mickey Hart Band live concert, but at least he’s finally giving you a really close look at what’s going on in his head to inspire the music.
