String Cheese Incident Welcomes Soul Rebels & Blind Boys
As expected, SCI’s set leaned heavily on material from Song In My Head, the band’s new studio album, which was released early in the week. Two trombonists, a trumpeter and a saxophonist from brass band The Soul Rebels emerged to lend a hand on “Black and White” after a cover of Bob Marley’s “Bend Down Low.” The show came to a conclusion with an encore of “People Get Ready” by Curtis Mayfield with SCI accompanied by Blind Boys Of Alabama.
Here’s a look at the setlist from SCI at Jazz Fest:
