The 18 city tour this summer includes appearances at many of the nations premiere festivals. The outing comes on the heels of the Shout! Factory releases of The Mickey Hart Collection out this spring and the recent Rhythm Devils DVD release from Star City Recordings in early June. The Mickey Hart Band will feature Steve Kimock on guitar, George Porter Jr. on bass, Jen Durkin on vocals, Kyle Hollingsworth on keys, Walfredo Reyes Jr. on drums, and talking drum master Sikiru Adepoju.

The tour begins beginning July 2 at the Southgate House in Newport, KY and then jumps to the Rothbury Festival the following day. The band will also make stops at festivals such as Summer-fest in Milwaukee on July 5 and wraps up July 24 at 10K Lakes Festival in Minnesota.

Mickey Hart is enjoying one of his busiest years ever with multiple new releases, and collaborations, will be touring behind the Mickey Hart Band this summer with a lineup that is a dream team of some of the best musicians in the live music scene. [JAMBASE]
