The Mickey Hart Band has released a new song, "Jersey Shore," to benefit Hurricane Sandy relief efforts. To download the song and help rebuild the shore go to http://www.mickeyhart.net/jersey. 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.
100% of the proceeds of "Jersey Shore" will go to Clean Ocean Action, who have organized over 3,800 volunteers since November 2012. Volunteers have worked on various projects including beach sweeps, toy drives for children displaced by Sandy, home and business cleanups, and "memorabilia" cleanups where they find items that may be highly significant and catalog them so people can find them via the local police department. To become a volunteer with Clean Ocean Action, go to http://fortheshore.org/.
