Mickey Hart will be playing with Zakir Hussain on October 12th at the SFJazz Center. The event is a tribute concert to the late Latin percussionist and Cuban-born Armando Peraza. The famed musical career of Peraza blessed him with playing with the likes of Jazz greats such as Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Dave Brubeck and Dexter Gordon. Armando Peraza passed away in April.
Mickey is and was an amazing drummer for the Grateful Dead. He has played with many of the best percussionists from around the world. Mickey is apart of the world beat. He understands the solidarity that all drummers have with each other and it is quite fitting that he is to help memorialize one of his own. Get Tickets here.
