Grateful Dead drummer Mickey Hart is organizing a “Heartbeat for Haiti” benefit concert Feb. 13 at the Fillmore in San Francisco. As part of the benefit, there will be a silent auction hosted by Mountain Girl. The entire list can be viewed at

In 1994 Mickey was inducted with The Grateful Dead into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. In addition to nearly three decades as part of the extraordinary being known as the “Grateful Dead,” Mickey has long been a student of percussion sounds and the unique cultures that produce them.

Mickey Hart has recorded a number of albums and has written four books documenting his lifelong fascination with the history and mythology of music. He has tirelessly pursued his investigation into the connection between healing and rhythm, and the neural bases of rhythm, as well as working to preserve sounds and music from around the globe.

A drum circle, according to Mickey, is “A huge jam session. The ultimate goal is not precise rhythmic articulation or perfection of patterned structure, but the ability to entrain and reach the state of a group mind. It is built on cooperation in the groove, but with little reference to any classic styles. So this is a work in constant progress, a phenomenon of the new rhythm culture emerging here in the West.”
