Mickey Hart

Dead and Company returned to Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati, Ohio last weekend for a Saturday night show that was one for the books. Great weather, perfect music, and a welcoming and happy crowd were just the right ingredients to make the perfect cocktail of a concert. To make things better, drummer Mickey Hart was celebrating his 78th birthday that day, and everybody loves a good birthday party.  

Shakedown Street is not only the place to find great tie-dyes, it’s also where many of our four legged friends hang-out. What’s it like to be a member of this elite canine group, the Dead Head tour dogs? “It’s grrrrreat”. What could be better than being on tour again, hanging-out, soaking up the scene, scarfing a treat, playing tug-of-war. “This is way more fun than staying home and chasing your tail”.

We're thrilled to announce that the first leg of Dead & Company's 2021 Tour will be streamed live! It all begins with the tour opener in Raleigh on August 16th and culminates with September's double-header at Wrigley Field.

Available to order now are individual shows in 4K or HD, audio bundles, and the 'Unlimited Devotion' livestream pass. With 'Unlimited Devotion' you'll have access to every show on the tour at a discounted rate.

At HeadCount, we want to make sure music fans are always getting hooked up with the best experiences. That’s why our friends at Omaze are offering the chance for you to win a VIP experience to see Dead & Company at next year’s Playing In The Sand.

Mickey Hart, the renowned percussionist for the Grateful Dead, is on a mission to awaken and expand our awareness through sound. He is gathering the universe’s deepest vibrations, mixing them with rhythm, and bending one's sense of self. Indeed, mystics for millennia have used meditation and sound to merge individual consciousness with cosmic consciousness. Hart’s new Commune course, Sound Consciousness: Drones for Sonic Bathing, serves the same timeless purpose.

Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, John Mayer, and Bob Weir, with Oteil Burbridge and Jeff Chimenti – is thrilled to announce its 2021 tour, kicking off August 16th in Raleigh, North Carolina, and running through Halloween, with a three-night stand at the iconic Hollywood Bowl on October 29th, 30th, & 31st.

Dead & Company just announced their return with Playing In The Sand 2022, and tonight we take a trip back to the beaches of Riviera Maya for the return of One More Saturday Night! Tonight they'll air the January 19 seaside show from Playing In The Sand 2020, so get your fruity drink and flip flops ready, the party begins at 9pm ET / 6pm PT

Susana Millman is petite, quiet, and a long-time member of the G.D. family, so when she got serious about photography and began shooting events backstage and away from shows….no one minded. As a result, her book Alive with the Dead / A Fly on the Wall with a Camera, self-published in 2016, was stuffed with shots from places most Dead photographers couldn’t go—Bob Weir’s wedding, a party at Mickey Hart’s house with Jerry, Governor Jerry Brown, and the Gyuto Monks, and lots more. Unsurprisingly, it was a huge hit, and traveling around the country meeting hundreds of ‘heads and selling it was enormously satisfying.

For this exclusive live streaming event from the SFJAZZ Center in San Francisco, CA, tabla master Zakir Hussain will perform solo and with a pair of special guests collaborating in real time from around the world — Grateful Dead legend Mickey Hart and bansuri flute virtuoso Rakesh Chaurasia.

There will be an encore performance on Sunday, November 15 at 6:00pm PST which will feature Zakir Hussain participating in the real-time chat to provide insightful commentary on the music and the performance.
