Grand Central Collaborations

On Friday at 5:00 PM, Mickey Hart hosted a percussion jam outside New York’s Grand Central Station. Part of the Green Apple Music and Arts Festivial’s EarthDay celebration, Hart recruited a high-profile backing band for his drum session, including Mike Gordon, Steve Kimock, the Mutaytor, Baaba Maal and Angelique Kidjo, who led the crowd through an inspired version of ‘Iko Iko.’ For their grand finale, Hart and Gordon came into the street with drums, leading the crowd in an extended percussion jam based around ‘Not Fade Away.’ During his performance, Hart also brought out his old friend Walter Cronkite to play percussion with his all-star ensemble. Hart and the Mutaytor will perform at New York’s BB King Blues Club on Saturday, April 22.
