The String Cheese Incident has a big year ahead of them. Following their three-night hometown New Year’s shebang and their International Incident destination event at Runaway Bay, Jamaica’s Jewel Paradise Cove last month, Michael Kang, Bill Nershi, Keith Moseley, Kyle Hollingsworth, Michael Travis, and Jason Hann are ready to face their celebratory 25th anniversary year head-on.
As keyboardist Kyle Hollingsworth told Live For Live Music late last year, “With celebrating 25 years, we really wanted to return to some of the places that have always been special to us and fun to play … those spots have always provided something a little extra for us as a band.”
One such spot is Las Vegas, Nevada, where The String Cheese Incident will mount a three-night run at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan on February 15th, 16th, and 17th. The band’s previous Las Vegas runs have produced some explosively creative end results, from a three-set grand finale performance featuring an all-acoustic set with special guest Jack Rajca to a memorable pairing of “Turn This Around” and James Brown classic “Cold Sweat”.
