In co-producer talent buyer, Michael Harrison Berg’s own words on Suwannee Hulaween’s fifth year, “Suwannee Hulaween, our flagship event, turns 5 years old this year and feels like it's finally flowered into a grown up. Between the ever evolving and diverse musical line up with a curated blend of Jam, Dance Music, Rock, and Hip Hop, along with with the experiential art experience of the Spirit Lake installation, back dropped by the natural beauty of the Spanish Moss laden oak tree forest at Spirit of the Suwannee, there is no better Halloween party in the world. Five years ago, we set out to take The String Cheese Incident's annual Halloween bash, and grow it into a full scale festival. Now, we have the honor of producing an event that we'd personally want to be at. We've watched the process come and go full circle as we've grown together with the most loyal and dedicated fanbase we've ever witnessed in our collective career. For our 5th anniversary in 2017, we plan to level up across the board.”

Watch String Cheese Incident & Karl Denson's Prince/Bowie Tribute at Electric Forest June 29, 2016 17:58

-
This past weekend marked the sixth annual Electric Forest, the annual music festival headlined by The String Cheese Incident in Rothbury, Michigan.  The festival also served as the first three shows of The String Cheese Incident's 2016 summer tour.  It's no secret that 2016 has been a tough year for the music industries, losing many icons including both Prince and David Bowie.   Bands have been paying tribute to both artists throughout the year, and Cheese did so in fine fashion on Saturday night.  Early in the second set, the band called on none other than Karl Denson (saxophone) for a killer sequence of Prince's "Kiss," Bowie's "Let's Dance," Prince's "Let's Go Crazy," and Bowie's "Space Oddity."  Thankfully, some fan-shot footage of the tribute has surfaced on YouTube.
-
Electric Forest Festival is a four-day multi-genre event, with a focus on electronic and jam band genres, held in Rothbury, Michigan, at the Double JJ Resort. The original event was called Rothbury Festival, debuted in 2008, and focused on jam bands and rock bands. The event was not held in 2010. Electric Forest, which debuted in 2011, is co-produced by Insomniac Events and Madison House. The 2015 event drew an estimated 45,000 attendees.

Celebrate Red Rocks' 75th Anniversary With Five Killer Performances June 15, 2016 17:28

Photo via RedRocksOnline.com

Today, the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre celebrates it's 75th anniversary, and that's something that simply cannot be overlooked. Red Rocks Amphitheatre is a rock structure near Morrison, Colorado, 10 miles west of Denver, where concerts are given in the open-air amphitheatre. There is a large, tilted, disc-shaped rock behind the stage, a huge vertical rock angled outwards from stage right, several large outcrops angled outwards from stage left and a seating area for up to 9,525 people in between. The amphitheater is owned and operated by the City and County of Denver, Colorado and is located in Red Rocks Park, part of the Denver Mountain Parks system.

The earliest notable rock-and-roll performance at Red Rocks was by The Beatles on August 26, 1964, the only concert not sold out during their US-tour.  The beautiful and unique setting has led to the venue becoming a favorite for many performers, including Jimi Hendrix on September 1, 1968.  U2 performed at the amphitheatre on June 5, 1983 during their War Tour, in front of a crowd of 9,000 people.  

Red Rocks was one of the favored venues for The Grateful Dead and the venue has become a traditional stop for many subsequent jam bands. Widespread Panic holds the record for the most sold out performances at Red Rocks (48 shows). Blues Traveler has played the venue every Fourth of July since 1993, except 1999 when lead singer and harmonica player John Popper was unable to play due to heart surgery.  The venue has also seen numerous performances from the likes of Phish, My Morning Jacket, Tedeschi Trucks Band, String Cheese Incident, Umphrey's McGee, STS9, and so many more.

In honor of Red Rocks' 75th anniversary, we've included video footage of five of our favorite performances below.  We feel confident that we can speak for the all music fans when we say, "Thank you, Red Rocks, for providing an endless amount of memories to music fans far and wide!"

Throwback: String Cheese Incident + Friends Jam On "Quinn The Eskimo" At Christmas Jam (2012) January 21, 2016 15:39

Photo by David Oppenheimer

Today, we look back on one of our fondest musical memories, the Warren Haynes Christmas Jam in 2012.  The annual charity event, hosted by Warren Haynes, has been held in Asheville, North Carolina every year since 1988.  The first show was dubbed, "The Christmas Jam: Musician's X-Mas Reunion" and was held at 45 Cherry, a local club in Asheville, on December 22 1988. Some of the artists at the first Christmas Jam were Warren HaynesCrystal Zoo, The Stripp Band and the McBad Brothers Band.

This event has continued to grow every year and is now dubbed "Warren Haynes Presents: The Christmas Jam". The show sells out in a matter of hours every year. Because of the fantastic growth, it is currently held at the U.S. Cellular Center (formerly known as the Asheville Civic Center), and continues to feature artists and friends Haynes has played with over the years. In 2008 and 2013, the event has featured two nights of music, in celebration of the 20th and 20th anniversaries.

This particular year was the 24th Annual Christmas Jam, boasting a lineup featuring The Blind Boys of Alabama, Sheryl Crow, The Avett Brothers, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, the String Cheese Incident, and the Warren Haynes Band.  Special guests for the evening included Anders Osborne, Nigel Hall, Karl Denson, Mike Barnes, Count M'butu, and Kevin Kinney.  

After a smoking hot set of Cheese, where many of us heard songs like "Rosie" and "Song In My Head" for the first time, the band returned to the stage with Haynes (guitar), Nigel Hall (keyboards), Karl Denson (sexophone), Count M'butu (percussion), and Mike Barnes (guitar) for a family-style superjam on the Bob Dylan classic, "Quinn The Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn)."  This one never gets old, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Over the weekend, many of the greatest bands from across the country came together for the 3rd Annual Lockn' Festival on Oak Ridge Farm in Arrington, VA.  Amongst the star studded lineup was the "The Doobie Incident," featuring The String Cheese Incident, along with of John Cowan, Guy Allison, John McFee, Tom Johnston, and Patrick Simmons of The Doobie Brothers  The Doobie Incident performed a Friday afternoon set full of Doobie Brothers classics, as well as a few tunes from the String Cheese catalog.  Just before the set began, John Popper of Blues Traveler performed a special rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" with a team of 9/11 first responders standing behind him.  If that's not a powerful way to kick off a music festival, we don't know what is.
