String Cheese Incident Teams Up with Ms Lauryn Hill at Electric Forest

Ms. Lauryn Hill joined the String Cheese Incident last night at Electric Forest for the highly anticipated Ms. Lauryn Hill Incident. SCI began the show with a pair of originals—“Outside Inside” and “Valley of the Jig”—that were accompanied by the band’s signature pageantry, as acrobats descended from the top of the stage, large inflatable balls appeared in the middle of the crowd and confetti rained down on everyone.

It was after the first two songs that Hill and her band finally joined Cheese for an exciting, cover-filled set. Following a qucik introduction, the hip-hop legend went into a soulful rendition of Stevie Wonder’s “For Once In My Life” that was followed by equally stirring takes on Aretha Franklin’s “I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You” and The Beatles’ “Something.” Wonder’s “Master Blaster (Jammin’)” came next before the group delved into Bob Marley’s “Don’t Rock My Boat” and “Is This Love” (Hill has five children with Marley’s son Rohan). The set then wrapped up with three classics from The Fugees’ seminal 1996 album The Score, “Fu-Gee-La,” “Killing Me Softly” and “Ready or Not.” Hill, her band and the String Cheese Incident then returned to close things out with Marley’s “Could You Be Loved” for the encore.

The String Cheese Incident will play their third and final show of Electric Forest tonight.

“...Bob Marley’s “Don’t Rock My Boat” and “If This Love” “If this Love” ???

lol, seeing that don’t rock the boat was a marley song had me very confused. a 2 second google search confirmed that was wrong.

Don’t Rock My Boat is absolutely a Marley song…

The crazy confetti & everything happened during the Lauryn Hill Incident, not beforehand during Valley of the Jig like this article states. Was the author even there? Also, forgot to mention that they covered Jammin’ by Bob Marley as well. What a beautiful Incident. She nailed the Aretha Franklin tune!!

The confetti and fireworks deeefinitely happened before Lauryn Hill joined the stage. I only stayed through “Something” and definitely remember the big bouncy blocks and acrobatics happening before I left.
