Boulder-bred String Cheese Incident — whose members played together for the first time in two years this past summer — will continue its reunion in 2010, drummer Michael Travis tells the Colorado Daily, with shows planned for summer and fall.
In an interview with the Daily’s Wendy Kale to promote his side project EOTO, Travis confirmed that String Cheese is “going to be playing some shows next summer and fall.”
“We’re not sure about the dates, but we’re definitely going to be playing,” Travis said. “We’re excited to put all we can into this incredible meeting of music, hearts and minds. It’s going to be exciting to reunite for those shows.”
String Cheese Incident — Travis, Michael Kang, Billy Nershi, Kyle Hollingsworth, Keith Moseley and Jason Hann — reunited this summer, playing Michigan’s Rothbury Festival over Fourth of July weekend, as well as a secret warm-up gig at Denver’s Ogden Theatre.
The popular jam band called it quits in August 2007 following a final run of dates at Morrison’s fabled Red Rocks Amphitheatre. At the time, the band announced guitarist Billy Nershi was leaving the group to pursue other musical projects, and, “There are no plans for the String Cheese Incident beyond summer of 2007.”
Travis and Hann bring their spin-off band EOTO to Englewood’s Gothic Theatre on Friday.
