Bust Out Alert: The String Cheese Incident Dusts Off Bob Marley Cover After 15 Years


The String Cheese Incident concluded a two-night stand at Skyway Theatre in Minneapolis last night. One day after opening night, SCI dusted off a long lost cover as well as an original that hadn’t been played in nearly two years.

The evening’s biggest surprise came towards the beginning of the first set, when the Colorado jam act worked a cover of Bob Marley’s “I Shot The Sheriff” within “Miss Browns Teahouse.” SCI fan site Friends Of Cheese states the band debuted their cover of “I Shot The Sheriff” on February 10, 1997. “I Shot The Sheriff” was last played on April 16, 2000 in Toronto before last night’s performance, a span of over 15 years.

Later in the first set, The String Cheese Incident dusted off the original “Cedar Laurels,” a song they debuted in 2001 and played over 60 times through a performance at the first Suwannee Hulaween in 2013. Thursday night marked the return of “Cedar Laurels” nearly two years after it was last played. Next up for SCI is a visit to the Riverside Theatre in Milwaukee this evening.
