[Download] Live Track Tuesday: The String Cheese Incident

I’ve been meaning to post this next live recording for quite a while now and was just reminded to do so when I heard that SirusXM’s radio station, JamOn, named it “Jam of the Year.”

The String Cheese Incident, a six-man band based out of Telluride, Colorado, has managed to make quite the name for themselves over the past 20 years. With a base layer of bluegrass covered in bits and pieces of rock, jazz, and funk, these guys are well worth a listen (although I'm sure you already know).

This track was recorded back in December at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago. I apologize for the minute and a half of chanter, but trust me, before you know it, String Cheese starts into Rosie - a song that keyboardist, Kyle Hollingsworth, and his daughter wrote. The song is pretty elementary; it's about a spider they found in their house (explained by the lyrics, “Rosie, I have no fear for you. Rosie, I know who you are.”) But the talent is far from elementary. The crew smoothly transitions into a cover of Chromeo’s, Bonafied Lovin’: a song that also deserves recognition.

This is looking to be a big summer for String Cheese, so if they end up in your area, be sure see them. You can find their tour schedule here. Enjoy
