Show Info

The Royal is beyond excited and proud to announce that on Tues. Feb 19th, for the first time ever, a member of The Grateful Dead will be performing in Nelson! Mickey Hart is best known for his nearly three decades as an integral part of an extraordinary expedition into the soul and spirit of music, disguised as the rock and roll band the Grateful Dead. As half of the percussion tandem known as the Rhythm Devils, Mickey and Bill Kreutzmann transcended the conventions of rock drumming. Their extended polyrhythmic excursions were highlights of Grateful Dead shows, introducing the band's audience to an ever-growing arsenal of percussion instruments from around the world. Exposure to these exotic sounds fuelled Mickey's desire to learn about the various cultures that produced them. For almost 2 years now Hart has been touring with this stellar line up of musicians that includes: Widespread Panic's Dave Schools on bass, Crystal Monee Hall who was a featured vocalist with the nationally touring and Broadway productions of RENT, multi instrumentalist Joe Bagale, Gawain Mathews on guitar, the Mozart of the talking drum? Sikiru Adepoju, Ian ?Inkx? Herman on drums and Ben Yonas. Come experience a historic night in The Capitol Theatre as the Mickey Hart Band delivers the legendary music that has carried him through his famous and beautiful career. Doors at 7pm. Showtime at 8pm. There will be an intermission.
Ticket Price: Tickets start at $42.50 + $1 service fee and will increase to $47.50 + $1 service fee once the first 100 tickets are sold.
