Throwback Thursday | String Cheese Debuts Paul Simon Cover

1999 was a big year for The String Cheese Incident as the Colorado-based band toured relentlessly expanding their fan base exponentially. The jam band held their 1999 Halloween show at the Electric Factory in Philadelphia and included a number of cover debuts in the second set.

One of those covers was Paul Simon's "Under African Skies" off his classic Graceland album. String Cheese does "Under African Skies" justice, often jamming it out and it has since been performed 63 more times. Today, let's look back at exceptional pro-shot footage of the String Cheese Incident debut of "Under African Skies":
