The String Cheese Incident has announced their annual Colorado amphitheater Incidents at Dillon Amphitheater (July 12, 13) and Red Rocks Amphitheatre (July 15, 16, 17). Joining SCI at Red Rocks will be Yonder Mountain String Band on Friday, Leftover Salmon on Saturday, and a very special Phil Lesh Incident on Sunday that will combine Phil Lesh with The String Cheese Incident for their Sunday performance.      

The String Cheese Incident also recently announced that they will headline two nights of “Daze Between” in New Orleans on May 3 & 4. Snarky Puppy, Lettuce, Eric Krasno, Rebirth Brass Band and more will be on hand to create a funky good time in between both weekends of the NOLA Jazz Fest. A portion of proceeds from ticket sales will go to benefit NOLA nonprofit organizations via Rex Foundation.

When The String Cheese Incident’s growth first started gaining momentum in the 1990s, as the Internet was just beginning to take hold and the major-label business model was failing, the band decided to make music on their own terms.

The String Cheese Incident’s commitment goes well beyond their immediate community, and even beyond the music community as a whole. Early on, the band took a serious interest in giving back to the communities that they visited, and they were among the first performers to encourage “Green” shows and tours. SCI’s support has helped give rise to such not-for-profit organizations as Conscious Alliance and HeadCount. All the while, The String Cheese Incident has stayed committed to music as a creative endeavor, not just in their recordings but also in their live performances. The list of SCI’s special guests and collaborators is long and diverse. Their annual events such as Electric Forest and Hulaween, and holiday shows such as New Year’s Eve, have helped redefine the concert experience and have garnered the band a reputation as live music vibe innovators.
