Did you know that Nancy Pelosi is a huge fan of the Grateful Dead? Mickey Hart was even at the representative's swearing-in this year! Hart was present for a party during Pelosi's first swear-in as speaker of the House along with fellow Dead mates Bob Weir, Bruce Hornsby, Warren Hayes, Bill Kreutzmann, and Mike Gordon, too. Naturally they played at the D.C. event, which many other celebrities also attended.
Pelosi has also attended other Grateful Dead events over the years, including the Fare Thee Well: Celebrating 50 Years of Grateful Dead tour. Many say it's just because she's representing California, which is where the Dead hails from, but she seems to truly enjoy the band's music. She's stated that her favorite song of the band's is "Fire on the Mountain," and that the song "Ripple" is a favorite lullaby in her family.
