The String Cheese Incident Performs ‘Breathe’ With Keller Williams & Honors Apollo 11 At Red Rocks

The String Cheese Incident welcomed longtime collaborator Keller Williams for the second show of their three-night run at Red Rocks. SCI joined Keller for his opening set to perform their collaborative album Breathe. The Keller Williams Incident set was followed by two Cheese sets, the second of which saw the band honor the 50th anniversary of the moon landing with a space-themed section.

Friend of Cheese Jack Mento got things going with a greeting before SCI kicked off the set with “You’ve Got The World” featuring Kyle Hollingsworth’s keytar solo. “Rhythm of The Road” then led into “I Know You Rider” followed by “Sirens.” “Sand Dollar” started off a block that contained “Rollover” and the set-closing “Colliding.”

The second frame got underway with “All We Got,” “Colorado Bluebird Sky” and “The Big Reveal.” A three-piece horn section introduced by Michael Kang as Horns Bruceby joined the band for “Jellyfish,” which fit in Little Feat’s “Willin” before returning to “Jellyfish.” Bassist Keith Mosseley then recognized the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 before the band blasted off into space with a “Lunar Landing Jam.”

Cheese then led Red Rocks through takes on popular sci-fi movie themes including “Close Encounters Jam,” “Star Wars Title Jam,” “Cantina Jam,” “Imperial March,” “Star Trek The Next Generation,” “Star Trek Theme” and “Also Sprach Zarathustra,” aka “2001.” SCI returned to “Rollover” to close out the evening.

The band closes out their Red Rocks run tonight and nugs.tv is once again providing a live stream. Watch video from all three sets below:
