Recommended Posts

NEW YORK (Billboard) -- Colorado jam-band kingpins the String Cheese Incident have announced plans to disband at the end of next summer.

String Cheese's final tour will include a Thanksgiving stop in Atlanta and a New Year's stand in San Francisco, as well as dates in Colorado. According to a statement, there are no plans for the band "beyond summer of 2007."

SCI is one of the bands I use as a model for how well indies can do for themselves.

Bummer. I've known Kyle (keyboard player) as an acquaintance for a few years since I worked for GC, and sold him gear here and there. Nice guy - bummer about the band. I guess I'll have to make sure to catch one of their shows before next summer!
