String Cheese Incident formed in 1993 in the cities of Crested Butte and Telluride, right here in Colorado. The band emerged as one of America’s most significant independent bands, and has since released 10 albums, 6 DVDs and countless live recordings from their absolutely relentless tour schedule. It is composed of electric guitarist, mandolin and violinist Michael Kang, drummer Michael Travis, acoustic guitarist, lap steel guitarist and electric slide guitarist Bill Nershi, pianist, organist and accordion player Kyle Hollingsworth, bass guitarist Keith Moseley, and, percussionist Jason Hann. Together they belt out a hypnotic, psychedelic blend of bluegrass sounds, incorporating elements of rock, electronica, calypso, country, funk, jazz, Latin, progressive rock, and reggae.
From just below the red rocks themselves, in Boulder, Colorado, the Jam band Leftover Salmon formed in 1989 to play a musical blend of bluegrass, rock, country, and Cajun/Zydeco. Over their thirty years as a band, Leftover Salmon have released seven studio albums and three live albums. They are singer and guitarist Vince Herman, singer, electric guitarist, mandolin and fiddle player Drew Emmitt, singer and bassist Greg Garrison, singer and banjo player Andy Thorn, and drummer and singer Alwyn Robinson.
