The String Cheese Incident, a jam band out of the great state of Colorado, is scheduled to take the stage this Saturday, Oct. 17 at the Fillmore in Detroit.

For those who have never experienced one of their shows, you do not want to miss out. However, if you have previously witnessed the glory, you know what you are missing should you be absent.

The String Cheese Incident has established a cult following, known as “Cheese Heads,” and for good reason. Performance after performance, they feed their dedicated fans stellar shows containing elements of rock and roll, bluegrass, improvisation and phenomenal showmanship, a solid recipe for a memorable show.

Band members Bill Nershi (guitar/vocals), Michael Kang (guitar/vocals), Kyle Hollingsworth (piano/keyboard/vocals), Michael Travis (percussion) and Jason Hann (percussion) fail time and time again to disappoint their fans, old and new.

Cheese shows are completely unpredictable. You never know what you are going to see, hear, feel and experience, which is a clue as to why they are followed and loved by such a loyal fan base. Being a jam band, they are famous for improvised, high energy performances chock-full of surprises. No two concerts are the same.

Listen for some of their hit classics such as “Jellyfish,” “Sirens,” “Texas,” “Black Clouds,” “Betray the Dark” and many more. Also look for songs from their most recent album such as “Let’s Go Outside” and “Song in My Head.”

Tickets are still available at Doors open at 7 p.m. All ages are welcome.
