About String Cheese Incident
Formed in Crested Butte, Colorado in 1993,
The String Cheese Incident got their start by playing at various ski resorts and private functions in the local area, sometimes
even performing simply for free lift tickets. The band is composed of Michael Kang, Michael Travis, Bill Nershi, Kyle Hollingsworth,
Keith Moseley, and Jason Hann, all of whom play a wide variety of instruments and collectively contribute to the song-writing
Six months after playing together, The String Cheese Incident were invited to play at the Telluride Bluegrass
Festival. As they began to generate a fan following, the group started to dedicate more time to pursuing their music, and
soon they had over 170 live shows per year. Their growing success and popularity allowed them to release their first album
on their self-managed independent label, SCI Fidelity. Their debut album Born on the Wrong Planet consisted of both original
songs and covers, and featured a variety of innovative improvisation and instrumentals.
Following the release of Born
on the Wrong Planet, The String Cheese Incident released a ten-song compilation album. This self-titled album was packed with
The String Cheese Incident's signature style of lengthy jams, clocking in at a whopping 72 minutes. This album is beloved
by fans, who consider it to be one of the band's best.
The String Cheese Incident went on to release 'Round the Wheel
in 1998, which featured a more refined, mature sound. For the next few years they would tour the United States constantly,
playing over 500 concerts across the nation. The band followed up 'Round the Wheel with their album, Outside Inside, which
was co-produced by Steve Berlin from Los Lobos. This album was noticeably more rock-oriented than previous albums, and helped
them capture a more mainstream audience. The album featured fan-favorite tracks like "Up the Canyon," "Rollover," and "Close
During the next decade, the band continued to tour almost continuously and released a few more albums. They
played everywhere, from ski resorts to festivals, including Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, the Wakarusa Music and Camping Festival,
the 10,000 Lakes Festival, Big Summer Classic festival, and headlining for the Electric Forest Festival.
In 2003, The
String Cheese Incident released their fourth studio album, Untying the Not, with help from producer Martin Glover, and followed
up in 2005 with their fifth album, One Step Closer. This album saw a return to their initial style of music, and featured
the percussionist Jason Hann. It was around this time that the band also organized "Big Summer Classic," which was a festival
tour that attracted the likes of New Monsoon, Umphrey's McGee, Yonder Mountain String Band, Michael Franti & Spearhead,
and the "one-man jam-band" Keller Williams.
Because touring has become such a large part of the band's success, they
began to focus their efforts on heightening the experience of their live shows. They hired an organization called Peak Experience
Productions to add more psychedelic elements to their shows, including various themed events like a New Year's Eve show, Halloween,
Full Moon Dream Dance, Dancing Around the Wheel of Time, a Subway Ride Through New York City, and Time Traveler's Ball. The
group also started an annual summer event in Horning's Hideout in Oregon.
