The String Cheese Incident
The excitement from the kick-off to Electric Forest 2016 continued into Day 2 of the 6thannual festival. On the morning of Friday, June 24 - whether having spent the night in a tent in the EF campgrounds, in one of EF’s Good Life Village VIP furnished European cabanas, or in a Good Life VIP Back 40 Log Cabin or Home - fans awoke ready to continue exploring the many adventures awaiting them.
For the first time ever, Kyle Hollingsworth, keyboardist of The String Cheese Incident, will bring Kyle’s Brew Fest to the craft beer town of Asheville, North Carolina, benefiting Conscious Alliance. On July 2nd, Kyle’s charity beer festival and concert will travel to New Mountain Asheville as the Official Pre-Party to the second date of The String Cheese Incident’s two-night run at ExploreAsheville.com Arena.
Bluegrass aficionado and The String Cheese Incident frontman Billy Nershi is a man of many tools. When he’s not on the road playing sold out concert halls with his band The String Cheese Incident, he’s sitting in with some of his favorite local artists in his home state of Colorado and pushing musical boundaries to new limits.
The String Cheese Incident is in the midst of their expansive March Madness tour of the West. The run has thus far seen enthusiastic crowds, intimate venues, and resilient playing from the band. Their two set shows have highlighted a career retrospective of tunes and expansively inspired grooves. The two Fox Theater gigs last weekend are being heralded as the fiercest of the tour yet.
Colorado’s born and bred The String Cheese Incident has significantly elevated their concert experience since they began jamming together in 1993. Their first audiences were at the base of ski lifts in Telluride, Colorado; picking in exchange for a lift ticket for whoever was around to take notice.
Following their upcoming “March Madness” tour and three nights of headlining Electric Forest, The String Cheese Incident will celebrate Independence Day by kicking off their summer tour in Asheville, NC where they will play two “Independence Incidents” in Asheville and two in Atlanta, GA followed by dates in Cooperstown, NY, Columbia, MD and Portsmouth, VA. SCI will return to Red Rocks Amphitheat
There’s something truly special about a New Year's show. Everyone puts on their best and celebrates a long year of work. Every year Colorado is particularly lucky to host a number of great bands who seem to compete for the coveted “Best Show” among fans. In epic fashion, The String Cheese Incident returned to the 1st Bank Center for a ritual 3 set show. Filled with unique surprises, this show elevated the possibility for live music.
With a quick turnaround on the heels of a three set New Year’s Eve show, The String Cheese Incident spoiled friends and family to more of that cheesy goodness on their second night at Broomfield’s 1st Bank Center. While the costumes and elaborate spectacles were reeled in (as much as they can be at a SCI show), the 3D screen was stunning and the music seemingly more engaged. Hangovers be damned, the band and crowd came to jig.
