The group–about to celebrate 20 years as a band–formed in Colorado in 1993 and have been hailed for their commitment to musical creativity and integrity, community spirit, philanthropic endeavors and their innovative approach to the business of music. They will release their first new album in nearly nine years in early 2014. The album will be produced by Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads).
THE STRING CHEESE INCIDENT–BILL NERSHI (guitars and vocals), MICHAEL KANG (mandolin, violin, guitar and vocals), KEITH MOSELEY (bass), MICHAEL TRAVIS (drums and percussion), KYLE HOLLINGSWORTH (keyboards and accordion) and JASON HANN (percussion)–will be on the road all summer long, beginning with key festival dates this weekend (full itinerary below). “We are really excited to hit the road this summer and visit some of our favorite venues and festivals across the country,” says Kyle. “We just finished recording our new record so it will be great to continue playing some of our newer tunes, a few of which have been re-worked. Rehearsals in Boulder have been going really well. It’s gonna be a fun summer.”
The group will also host their first-ever HULAWEEN FESTIVAL October 31 to November 2 in Live Oak, FL. The group will perform each night, along with guests including STS9 and BIG GIGANTIC, with more artists to be announced. Tickets go on sale Tuesday, June 25.
