Saturday, August 20 in Long Island at Blue Point Brewery,
Mickey Hart, legendary Grateful Dead percussionist, brings his band to Patchogue for their only Long Island show of the summer. Hart played the brewery last year with fellow former Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann and their band, The Rhythm Devils. Faith-Tesoriero Productions is promoting the ‘brew yard concert’ for the second year running. “Mickey was blown away by the reception that he got from the crowd last year, and loved performing at the brewery. It’s not surprising, what better place to have a live show than a brewery?!” said Faith-Tesoriero’s Jim Faith.
The all-day celebration will also feature a special ‘Rusted Root Trio’ project featuring lead singer/guitarist Michael Glabicki, Preach Freedom and Colter Harper, as well as Jam Stampede (with members of Ratdog, DSO, and Zen Tricksters). Doors open at 2PM with additional surprise bands, plenty of Blue Point beer, local food, and arts and crafts available for purchase.
The 13th Anniversary Celebration takes place rain or shine from 2-10PM at the brewery in Patchogue, NY. Tickets are $39 in advance and $45 at the door. Tickets can be purchased online at www.BluePointBrewing.com or in the brewery tasting room at 161 River Avenue, Patchogue. Attendees can ride the train or drive and park in the Patchogue train station lot. The brewery is a quick 5 block walk west from the station.
