Steve Kimock and George Porter To Tour with Mickey Hart Band
Mickey Hart will tour throughout much of July with a quintet that features a number of familiar faces. Steve Kimock, Jen Durkin and Sikiru Adepoju all were part of the Rhythm Devils collective that gigged in the fall of 2006. In addition, bassist George Porter Jr. will round out the line-up of the Mickey Hart Band, which will appear at the Harmony Festival in Santa Rosa, CA on June 6. Then, following an appearance at Wakarusa on June 8, the group will begin its extended July run on the 3rd at Rothbury, routing to the Northeast and then back to the Midwest, closing its confirmed string of dates on July 24 in Detroit Lakes, MN at the 10,000 Lakes Festival. As for the Rhythm Devils (which also included Bill Kreutzmann and Mike Gordon), a DVD of the band’s performance at the Chicago Theater on 10/24/06 will hit later this summer.
