Download a new song by the Mickey Hart Band and help raise money for people affected by Hurricane Sandy.

The Mickey Hart Band has released a new song, “Jersey Shore”, to benefit Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. 


Those who make a donation will also receive two bonus hours of music including the full length performance of the Mickey Hart Band Live on the Jersey Shore (August 17, 2012), and tracks from the band’s latest album Mysterium Tremendum.


“I was a kid from Coney Island, Atlantic Beach and Far Rockaway,” says Hart. “The Shore was the totem, the centerpiece, a physical representation of community spirit for many generations. [...] It’s time to rebuild what we’ve lost.  Let’s bring back the beauty.  Your help is needed now, more than ever.  Please give what you can.”


100% of the proceeds of “Jersey Shore” will go to Clean Ocean Action, who have organized over 3,800 volunteers since November 2012.
