Mickey Hart Band Confirms First 2012 Dates
Mickey Hart Band have confirmed their first round of 2012 dates. Shortly after New Year’s, the group will hit the road for an East Coast tour as well as an appearance in Nevada. While the exact lineup for Hart’s new group remains in flux, the Grateful Dead percussionist plans to bring vocalists Crystal Monee Hall and Tim Hockenberry, Widespread Panic bassist Dave Schools, drummer Ian “Inx” Herman, guitarist Gawain Matthews, percussionist Sikuru Adepoju and keyboardist Ben Yonas on the road in December and may also utilize many of the same players in January. Given Panic’s tour schedule, it is entirely possible Schools can make all these upcoming shows. Hart is finishing work on a new album featuring music inspired by light waves and lyrics by Robert Hunter.
