Music’s best kept secret.


There was a special vibe in the air last weekend. Not that Berkeley is a stranger to incidents but this one was a doozy. The String Cheese Incident rocked the Greek theater for a two night jam session.

You have never seen so many hula hoopers in one place all swaying to the bluegrass, transcendent Afro-pop rhythms and breezy Calypso grooves of the Cheese. If you have never seen a String Cheese show you are missing one of the most invigorating and spiritually lifting musical experiences today.

Each night had its highlights. I loved the big funk/techno jam out of "Got What He Wanted” “My personal highlight was from the first set were Bill rocked on the Way Back Home, setting a great vibe for the rest of the nights musical mind trip” Overall it was 2 great nights of high energy music that everyone walked away from wanting more.

Questions & Answers

What was the crowd like?

“An experience of pure joy. “
