The String Cheese Incident brought out guitarist Scott Sharrard during their show Monday night at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, New York. SCI also went into the audience to perform an acoustic “Dark Hollow.”

“You’ve Got The World” opened the first set of the band’s third straight concert at The Cap. They then worked through “Sweet Spot,” a pairing of “Little Hands” into “Don’t It Make You Wanna Dance” and “Beautiful.” Sharrard then emerged to add electric guitar to “Outside And Inside.” Coinciding with the anniversary of Gregg Allman’s death in 2017, Sharrard – who was a prominent member of Allman’s solo band – also assisted on a bust out cover of The Allman Brothers Band’s “Hot’Lanta.”

The second set began with the members of The String Cheese Incident on the floor of The Cap surrounded by the audience. The group then played an acoustic version of the traditional “Dark Hollow,” which was last covered by SCI in 2006. Back onstage, the set continued with “Into The Blue,” followed by “Joyful Sound” > “Rumble.” The rarely played cover of The Police’s “Walking On The Moon” was placed within “Best Feeling,” which then landed on “Colliding.” The sixth SCI set of the weekend at the storied venue drew to a close with “Texas.” The band capped the run at The Cap by encoring with Peter Gabriel’s classic “Shakin’ The Tree.”
