A talented drummer sets the pace of a rock band using a steady beat, well-timed cymbal crashes, and the strings he's tied to the limbs of all the other band members. Witness the puppeteers of music with this GrouponLive deal to see the Mickey Hart Band at The Paramount in Huntington. For $19, you get one ticket for standing-room-only general admission on Thursday, August 16, at 8 p.m. (up to a $40.50 value, including ticketing fees). Doors open at 7 p.m.

Best known as one half of the Grateful Dead's percussive duo, the Rhythm Devils, Mickey Hart has spent decades immersed in the study of global music and polyrhythmic explorations. Hart’s last collaboration, the Global Drum Project, snagged the 2009 Grammy for Best Contemporary World Music Album, joining his ’91 Grammy for the Billboard-topping Planet Drum. In his most recent album, Mysterium Tremendum, Hart collaborated with NASA to turn light waves from astronomic observation into musical beats, layering melodies and words over the galactic grooves. Praised by Relix as "an instantly accessible album of jazz-inflected global grooves," tracks include the didgeridoo-infused groove "Who Stole the Show?" and the chime-filled "Ticket to Nowhere," which evokes aimless journeying and train rides on a circular track. In the show, Hart and his band, which includes vocalists Crystal Monee Hall and Tim Hockenberry, showcase pieces from the new album and satisfy longtime fans with favorite songs from his Grateful Dead days.

The Paramount

An oasis for arts-loving crowds tired of taking malfunctioning teleporters to Long Island, the cavernous, recently renovated Paramount draws in major acts to spare fans stressful commutes. The buxom venue buzzes with a true rock 'n' roll vibe, beaming with a nocturnal color scheme decorated with whimsical local art and exposed brick walls.

Mickey was full of energy and absolutely delivered the magic that I was hoping for!

Great mixture of the new material with old grateful dead material. The band is spot on and Mickey is still the master.
