String Cheese Incident Honor JJ Cale with Anders Osborne at Red Rocks

Anders Osborne sat in with the String Cheese Incident during their first encore last night at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre. The New Orleans blues guitarist made his appearance for JJ Cale’s “After Midnight,” which the band played in honor of Cale, who passed away the other day. That song segued into “Outside Inside,” a tune that Osborne joined SCI for during last year’s Warren Haynes X-mas Jam.

The show kicked off with “Song In My Head before going into a fairly low key run of songs. The latter half of the first set included a number of fan favorites like “Dudley’s Kitchen,” “Eye Know Why” and a cover of Bob Marley’s “Could You Be Loved” before wrapping up with the Cheese classic “Rollover.”

Jason Hann and Michael Travis took the stage at the start of the second set for a drum solo in Red Rocks’ stage toweners that played into a crowd-pleasing take on the band’s celtic/psychedelic tune “Rivertrance,” which was left unfinished before transitioning into “It Is What It Is.” Next came “Don’t Bring Me Down” sandwiched between “Johnny Cash” before the band went into a thumping “Colliding.” “Sirens” played into an extended jam that featured a tease of the very rare “Nardis” before going into “Bollymunster.” The set then came to a close with an appropriate “Colorado Bluebird Sky.”

Before the encore, Keith Moseley announced that the band would be (unsurprisingly) returning to Colorado for their New Year’s Eve run, though no details were revealed. Osborne then took the stage to help out on the first encore, which was followed by a second encore that ended the show with “Way Back Home.”
