The Mickey Hart Band To Unveil New Line Up at the Fillmore in San Francisco, CA on June 30th
The Mickey Hart Band will be unveiling their new line up at the legendary Fillmore in San Francisco, CA on this Saturday June 30th. The band is excited to welcome new singer and multi instrumentalist, Joe Bagale, who will share vocal duties with female powerhouse Crystal Monee Hall. Bagale joins the current line up of Mickey Hart, Hall, Widespread Panic bassist Dave Schools, Grammy winning percussionist and Hart's longtime band mate Sikiru Adepoju, drummer Ian "Inx" Herman, guitarist Gawain Matthews, and keyboardist/producer Ben Yonas. Originally from Rochester, NY, Bagale has been performing with the San Francisco's Jazz Mafia collective for the past five years.
The band congratulates past band member Tim Hockenberry on his recent success on the television show "America's Got Talent" and wishes him the best of luck as he goes on to compete for the prize.
Opening for the Mickey Hart Band at the Fillmore will be a brand new group coming out of the San Francisco's Jazz Mafia collective, Adam Theis and SUBHARMONIC, who will be making their debut performance. To catch the show, purchase tickets here.

report back on the show so we can share the joy!
I had the priveledge to attend a Zappa Plays Zappa concert, and unbeknownst to be, I noticed flyers for Mickey Harts new project at the same venue coming up next week. A small and easily missed sign close to the box office said to ask the ticket person for free Mickey Hart tickets. I asked, and they gave me two. How cool is that? A miracle ticket I wasn't looking for!
I second that emotion. I got home from SF in time to catch Mickey's gig in Wingfield park by the Truckee River - and man I was wonderful. The sound of the group is excellent - at times like taking Rhythm Devils space and turning it into singable, danceable grooves. And Hunter's words are really good as well - almost seems like he saves some of his best work for Mickey.
All in all, a great way to kickoff Art Town, and an amazing infusion of energy into Reno. I hope more folks from the family come out here (Phil, Bob, Bill - are you listening?). :)
Just wanted to say that the Reno show was outstanding and the turnout was phenomenal. Easily the biggest crowd Artown has ever seen, and most stayed for the whole show (even through the long bouts of sonification-esque numbers that the uninitiated usually punt on.) We can only hope to approach Mickey's energy and positive spirit, and as he said at the end of the show "take that good feeling and share it with others."
Thanks Mickey and friends!
and sunday a free show in reno,,,,
tomorrow at the fillmore...
