John Kadlecik & Jeff Pevar Guest With The String Cheese Incident In Eugene

Colorado jam act The String Cheese Incident brought a run of four West Coast shows to an end on Sunday at Cuthbert Amphitheater in Eugene, Oregon. The band was joined by a pair of guitarists at separate points of last night’s concert.

SCI opened Sunday’s show with a cover of Newgrass Revival’s “Can’t Stop Now.” The sextet then worked “Search” into Bob Marley’s “Could You Be Loved.” Cheese made their way through keyboardist Kyle Hollingsworth’s “Falling Through The Cracks” as a prelude to “MLT.” Guitarist Jeff Pevar (CPR, Jazz Is Dead, Phil Lesh & Friends), an old friend of the band who has sat-in numerous times in the past, added to “MLT.” The String Cheese Incident ended the first set with a “Water” > “Dirk” pairing.

The String Cheese Incident kicked off the final set of the weekend with “Believe,” the title track of their most recent studio album. SCI then treated fans to “Song In My Head,” the title track from the group’s 2014 LP, before digging into the back catalog for “Valley Of The Jig” and “Hotel Window.” Former Dark Star Orchestra and Furthur guitarist John Kadlecik was Cheese’s second guest of the night. Kadlecik helped out on a cover of Tom Petty’s “You Wreck Me.” John K.’s guest spot was followed by a well-jammed rendition of Talking Heads’ “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)” that eventually gave way to “Texas.”


For the encore, SCI went with “Can’t Wait Another Day.” The String Cheese Incident continues their Summer Tour this weekend in Telluride at The Ride Festival.
