3-time Grammy Award winning artist Mickey Hart — best known as drummer / percussionist for the Grateful Dead — brings his band to the Crystal Ballroom in support of his April 10 CD release Mysterium Tremendum.

Mickey Hart is best known for his nearly three decades as an integral part of an extraordinary expedition into the soul and spirit of music, disguised as the rock and roll band the Grateful Dead. As half of the percussion tandem known as the Rhythm Devils, Mickey and Bill Kreutzmann transcended the conventions of rock drumming. Their extended polyrhythmic excursions were highlights of Grateful Dead shows, introducing the band’s audience to an ever-growing arsenal of percussion instruments from around the world. Exposure to these exotic sounds fueled Mickey’s desire to learn about the various cultures that produced them.

    I saw Mickey perform in the 80s, 90s, 00s but not yet in the teens–help me make four decades of Mickey!

    not to pressure you or make you feel guilty, but if i don’t win these tickets i am probably going to have to forgo buying dog food so i can purchase a ticket. so basically what i am saying is the future of my dog lays in your hands. make the right choice. no pressure though.

    I have never seen him perform. I have been supremely passionate about percussion and expression through drumming. I think I would actually melt if I won these tickets.

    I thought I might have missed the show but luckily it is tonight. The Crystal is such a fun place to see and hear a band. You have to love the floating floor. I want to feel the groove with Mickey Hart and his band and spend some time with my peeps.
