The String Cheese Incident has been around since the early 90s. The band’s sound is eclectic, drawing from bluegrass, country, psychedelic rock, and jam band music. Each of the band’s six members contributes to writing the band’s music. The String Cheese Incident has become known for the stage production value of their live shows. Shows incorporate visual and mind psychedelia. Audiences can also enjoy participatory elements incorporated into shows. Shows have also become larger “incidents,” big events that take place on holidays like New Year’s Eve and Halloween. The band at one point was closely associated with hula hooping, culminating in an incident called “Hulaween.” Other “incidents” have included larger, well-produced themed events. The String Cheese Incident’s fan base has grown considerably since their early days, leading them to headline larger festivals and events like Bonnaroo and Austin City Limits. They emphasize a real circular connection, or a back and forth relationship with the audience, making even a larger performance feel like an intimate event. With a long history of music making and performance, The String Cheese Incident has cultivated a devoted following that come out in full force for concerts, making them high energy and exciting events.
