Kyle Hollingsworth Adds Solo Dates, Previews String Cheese Tour
In celebration of his birthday, String Cheese Incident keyboardist Kyle Hollingsworth has posted a new blog. His latest entry looks back on his recent solo shows and ahead to String Cheese Incident’s three-show run in Broomfield, CO. Hollingsworth hints that the band plans to work up some new songs and bust out some rarities. His blog reads:
Ok, ok, so it’s my birthday, don’t rub it in. And now that I am more than twice Justin Bieber’s age, I am starting to feel the years. But at least we have matching haircuts. The bowl cut will never die!!!
Actually, things are going pretty great. I have been busy for the last few months writing tunes and playing music. I did some cool shows around town with my band, KHB. We opened for Umphrey’s at the Fillmore, in Denver, and that was a blast. They are such a great guys and it’s always a pleasure to hang with them. But, honestly, it was my wife’s birthday so I got a bit buzzed and ran around the Fillmore dancing and screaming. So I didn’t get to much time to hang. I think I remember having a had a good time though.
But then there’s now and I am deep in rehearsals with SCI. With only a week left before the big 1st Bank Center Cheese shows, we are getting pumped. We are digging into some of the older material that has not been played in a while, but also breaking out some new tracks. It’s going to be awesome, it’s always a bit challenging to just jump back in it and that’s why we spend so many weeks preparing. It’s not about learning the chords to “Howard” again, it’s more so about jamming together and getting the magic back. It’s never lost, but just needs to be dusted off a bit.
Kyle Hollingsworth Band will play three shows in the Northwest next month. Those dates can be found below:
April 7 Bellingham, WA—Wild Buffalo (with Acorn Project)
April 8 Seattle, WA—Nectar (with Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad)
April 9 Portland, OR—Bossanova Ballroom (with Acorn Project and Jesta)
