The String Cheese Incident Goes Voodoo On Halloween 2013


In just a few short days Suwannee Hulaween begins at The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida featuring seven sets of The String Cheese Incident as well as performances from Primus, Lettuce, Slightly Stoopid, Railroad Earth, The Floozies, Papadosio and more. This year marks the third installment of Suwannee Hulaween and today we look back at SCI’s voodoo-themed Halloween performance the inaugural festival in 2013.

On October 31, 2013 The String Cheese Incident were joined by the Antibalas horns as well as vocalists Rhonda Thomas and Tony White for a set of covers in line with the voodoo theme. The ensemble starts off with “Hells Bells” by AC/DC and then roll through The Neville Brothers’ “Voodoo,” “Zombie” by Fela Kuti and The Police’s “Spirits In The Material World.” Percussionist Jason Hann showed off his best Kanye West on “Monster” before the band lit into the set’s finale of “Voodoo Child” > “Black Magic Woman.” The musical performance was augmented by pyro, dancers, fire-eaters and other visual eye candy.
