The String Cheese Incident & The Slip Members Cover Steely Dan In 1999
The String Cheese Incident shared a “raw video” featuring members of The Slip joining in for a brief cover of Steely Dan’s “Hey Nineteen” and SCI original “Galactic” on February 27, 1999 at Walk Music Hall in Jackson, Wyoming. The video comes from the penultimate night of a series of dates The Slip opened for Cheese.
The “Hey Nineteen” > “Galactic” sequence came towards the middle of SCI’s second set on February 27, 1999. Bassist Marc Friedman of The Slip played in addition to Keith Moseley as Marc used a fretless instrument that he soloed on at various points of the segment. The Slip drummer Andrew Barr lent a hand on percussion throughout. Earlier in the night, Andrew played percussion on “San Jose,” while The Slip guitarist Brad Barr added to a cover of Joe Zawinul’s “Mercy Mercy Mercy.”
