https://www.songkick.com/artists/182943-string-cheese-incident/calendar

Using various genre inspirations, The String Cheest Incident is an American progressive bluegrass band from Crested Butte and Telluride, Colorado formed in 1993.

The String Cheese Incident is composed of Michael Kang (acoustic/electric mandolin, electric guitar, and violin), Michael Travis (drums and percussion), Bill Nershi (acoustic guitar,lap steel guitar, and electric slide guitar), Kyle Hollingsworth (piano, organ, Rhodes, and accordion), and Keith Moseley (bass guitar), and, in 2006, Jason Hann (auxiliary percussion). The band played a few shows before forming their own independent record label SCI Fidelity and started to record their first album. They released “Born On The Wrong Planet” in 1996. Less than a year later the band released “A String Cheese Incident,” a compilation of ten song live album.

In Fall 2003 The String Cheese Incident released, “Untying the Not,” their fourth studio album and a continuation of electronic music and trance elements. The following summer they set out on tour followed a year later by the release of their fifth studio album, “One Step Closer.” In 2008 the members of The String Cheese Incident pursued solo careers and all members performed their solo work at the Rothbury Music Festival in Michigan, and a year later they reunited for the same festival. As the band’s popularity grew, their live shows also great with their stage show. In Spring 2011, String Cheese Incident played a three-night run in Broomfield, Colorado, which they called the “Winter Carnival 2011.” In 2014 The String Cheese Incident released their album, “A Song In My Head,” the first album released since 2009.

Phish

https://www.songkick.com/artists/46745-phish/calendar

Phish (formed in 1983) is an American rock, funk, folk, blues and bluegrass jam band known for their enviable musical improvisation from Burlington, Vermont, U.S.

Members Trey Anastasio on vocals and guitar, Jon Fishman on drums, guitarist Jeff Holdsworth formed the band in 1983 whilst attending the University of Vermont. Noted for playing mainly Grateful Dead songs, in 1985 Page McConnell joined the band on keyboard and for a show for WRUV Radio Burlington, U.S. In 1986 Holdsworth departed from the group and the remaining line-up has continued to play to the day.

Towards the tail-end of the 1980s Phish released a number of experimental self-titled cassettes before their debut album “Junta” in 1988 and its follow-up “Lawn Boy” in 1989, the latter got a rerelease from independent label Absolute A-Go-Go in 1990. With the collapse of Rough Trade and Absolute A-Go-Go Phish signed with Elektra in 1992, released the full-length “A Picture of Nectar” and embarked on an extensive North American tour.

Due to the rerelease of previous material Phish began to expand on their listenership and procure a devoted following. Phish’s fourth album “Rift” was released in 1993, was followed by “Hoist” their highest selling album to date in 1994, which featured the single “Down with Disease” their first single to receive airplay on MTV and appeared on the TV show “Beavis and Butthead”.

In 1995 Phish released a two-disc live album titled “A Live One” which attempted to encapsulate the band’s notoriously impressive live show defined by the laudable improvisation, and which album became Phish’s first album to be certified gold. A year later in 1996 the band released “Billy Breathes” and which has often been dubbed as Phish’s crowning album achievement, with featured track “Free” reaching No. 11 on the Mainstream Rock Chart.

Phish went on to host a two-day festival at the Big Cypress Seminole Indian Reservation, Florida, U.S. where the band took the stage at 11:35 on December 31, 1999 and played for eight hours through to the new millennium. The band announced a break-up in October 2000 during which time the members pursued many musical projects including Anastasio’s solo work, work on Tenancious D’s first LP, a collaboration with Police drummer on the project Oysterhead and work with Gov’t Mule.

After an appearance on the Simpsons and a huge release of live and previous material, and a surge of popularity and appreciation, Phish returned with a year and a half of touring and the album “Undermind” in 2004. The return was short lived and following the release Phish announced they would once again break-up with an emotional final gig in Coventry, Vermont, U.S.

In 2008 the band won the Jammys Lifetime Achievement Award and released a number of tour dates playing alongside acts of a certain distinguished pedigree including Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Beastie Boys and Nine Inch Nails. On September 8, 2009 Phish released their fourteenth studio album “Joy” followed by a number of tour dates, and in 2012 headlined Bonnaroo Festival with the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Radiohead. In 2014 the band released their fifteenth studio album entitled “Fuego”.

Sister Hazel

https://www.songkick.com/artists/486732-sister-hazel/calendar

Sister Hazel are an American rock band hailing from Gainesville, Florida, US, with a penchant for penning upbeat, highly melodic tunes with their distinctive southern rock tone.

The band formed in Gainesville in 1993, naming themselves Sister Hazel after a local missionary who ran a homeless shelter, coming together through all being established on the local scene. The five piece consists of Ken Block (guitarist.vocals), Andrew Copeland (guitarist/vocals), Ryan Newell (Lead guitarist), Jeff Beres (bassist) and Mark Trojanowski (drums).

They recorded their self-titled debut album in 1994 on Croakin’ Poets, which was followed by their second in 1997, “…Somewhere More Familiar” which went on to sell 30,000 copies in its initial pressing. This drew the attention of major label, Universal Records, who signed the band and re-released the record. Their single “All For You” reached number 11 in the Billboard Hot 100, being a high point of their career.

Their third album was released in 2000, “Fortress” which featured the singles “Champagne High” and “Change Your Mind” which achieved moderate success. However, the band split from Universal three years later, moving to the Sixthman Label to release their fourth album, “Chasing Daylight” alongside a live album and DVD.

The band continued to release a steady stream of records, including a live acoustic album in 2008, titled “Before the Amplifiers, Live Acoustic.” Their music has been used on several soundtracks, including “The Wedding Planner,” “Bedazzled” and “10 Things I Hate About You.”

Soul Asylum

https://www.songkick.com/artists/511629-soul-asylum/calendar

Soul Asylum is an American alternative rock band, formed in 1981 under the moniker Loud Fast Rules, hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Formed of drummer Dave Pirner, guitarist and backing vocalist Dan Murphy and bassist Karl Mueller, before Pirner move to lead vocalist, Loud Fast Rules released two songs on the Reflex Records cassette “Barefoot and Pregnant in 1982. In 1983 the named changed to Soul Asylum and the band soon developed a devoted following around the Misseapolis/St. Paul’s area through dynamic stage shows and the honing of the rage of punk, the classic guitar power of rock and emotively entrenched lyrics of soul.

The band’s debut album “Say What You Will… Everything Can Happen” arrived in 1984 on an exclusive LP and cassette released through Twin/Tone Records, produced by Hüsker Dü’s Bob Mould. Soul Asylum’s sophomore album “Say What You Will, Clarence… Karl Sold the Truck” featured all of the previous albums’ songs plus additional material.

Two albums made the light of day in 1986 “Made to Be Broken” and “While You Were Out” and marked the replacement of Pat Morley with Grant Young. The two album’s earned the band critical success within the alternative rock genre and led to a relentless touring schedule and a swelling fan base.

After signing with A&M and crafting the EP “Clam Dip & Other Delights”, a parody of A&M founder Herb Alpert’s iconic “Whipped Cream & Other Delights” album, Soul Asylum released their fifth studio album “Hang Time” in 1988. Produced by Lenny Kaye “Hang Time” has long been considered Soul Asylum’s finest, most melodic and powerfully emotional album, which saw approval from the alternative genre and college radio.

With increasingly high expectations from A&M, and after the disappointing release of their subsequent album “And the Horse They Rode In On” in 1990 – a semi-live album – the band were dropped from A&M. Riding the indie wave of Nirvana’s “Nevermind”, Soul Asylum landed a deal with Columbia and released the album “Grave Dancer’s Union” to considerable radio airplay and MTV rotation. The album spawned the single “Runaway Train” which peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard singles chart and earned the band a Grammy for Best Rock Song.

Soul Asylum failed to maintain such popular appeal and their two subsequent albums “Let Your Dim Light Shine” in 1995 and “Candy from a Stranger” in 1998 were comparative flops both in terms of critical recognition and commercial sales. After a considerable cooling-off period Soul Asylum’s next release arrived in 2006 with the album “The Silver Lining” and later “Delayed Reaction” in 2012.

Better Than Ezra

Better Than Ezra

https://www.songkick.com/artists/428436-better-than-ezra/calendar

Better Than Ezra are a rock band hailing from New Orleans, Louisiana, United States who formed in 1989. Since making their debut in 1993 they have become one of the most respected cult bands in American rock and have released seven studio albums in total.

When it comes to rock and roll, nothing forces a band to prove themselves quite like tragedy. With the passing of a band member, the rest of the group is immediately presented with two possibilities, to stop or to continue. In this case, stopping is the easy, understandable option. Absolutely no-one would begrudge any band to split due to the loss of one of their band-mates, but if they do continue and mess up, then they’re liable for more abuse than they could possibly get any other way. However, if they continue and make it work, then you know without question that the band is something very special indeed.

In the form of Better Than Ezra, we have one of the best examples of the latter scenario rock and roll has ever provided us. The trio formed as a four piece in 1988, with Kevin Griffin on guitar and vocals, Tom Drummond on bass, Joel Rundell on lead guitar and Cary Bonnecaze on drums. The quartet met while studying at the Louisiana State University, and cut their teeth performing at assorted college bars and fraternity houses around their campus. The band made their first demo tape the same year they formed and started to generate a substantial local following, and by 1990 they’d self-released their first album “Surprise” on cassette.

“Surprise” was very well received by the local press and started to gain the band some serious attention, but the very same year was when tragedy struck the up-and-coming band. On August 8th, Joel Rundell took his own life, upturning the lives of his bandmates and throwing their future as a band into serious doubt. The band decided to press on by the end of the year as a trio, and started again from scratch, playing the kind of fraternities and house parties that they’d made their name doing. By the early 90’s, the band had learned enough about the music industry to up sticks to Los Angeles, California and form their own label, Swell Records.

With their own label and their new stomping ground in the City of Angels, the band recorded their first nationally distributed album “Deluxe” and released it in 1993. The album was rapturously received and along with the bands celebrated live show, it got them their first record deal with Elektra Records in 1995. “Deluxe” was re-released the same year and it went platinum by that winter, thanks in no short part to the success of their debut single “Good” which reached the top spot of the Billboard Modern Rock Songs chart and stayed there for a whole month. After more hardship in seven years than some see in a lifetime, Better Than Ezra had arrived.

Bonnecaze left in 1996 to be replaced by Travis McNabb, and ever since then the band have been one of the most dependable rock acts around. Never seeing the mainstream success that “Deluxe” brought them again but continuing their run of critically acclaimed records with the likes of 1998’s “How Does Your Garden Grow” and 2014’s “All Together Now”, among many others. They still remain one of the most respected bands around, even having their song “Breathless” covered by the all-conquering Taylor Swift in 2010 as part of a charity telethon. They’re a band who has earned every scrap of goodwill they’ve got and are still at the top of their game. Highly recommended.

Sponge are a band hailing from Detroit, Michigan, United States who formed in 1991. Since debuting, the band have released seven studio albums and are best known for their hit single “Molly (16 Candles Down The Drain)”.

The story of Sponge begins, like so many other bands, with an earlier, failed attempt at rock-stardom. Loudhouse was formed in the mid-1980’s by drummer Vinnie Dombrowski along with guitarists Mike Cross and Joey Mazzola, and they would go on to become a tried and tested almost famous story. They released a debut album on Virgin in 1988 before losing their record contract and splitting at the dawn of the 1990s, but Dombrowski, Cross and Mazzola weren’t done. Deciding to form their own band, Dombrowski switched from drums to lead vocals, and the trio recruited Mike’s brother Tim Cross on bass along with drummer Jimmy Paluzzi, christening the new group Sponge in 1992.

Previously playing a brand of gritty hard rock that most thought had been left dormant since the mid-70’s, the new band incorporated influences cribbed from the fast exploding grunge movement, and struck gold very quickly as a result. By 1994, two years after they came together, they had signed a record deal with Columbia and released “Rotting Piñata”, their debut studio album. Thanks to the radio success of its singles “Plowed” and “Molly”, the album was a sleeper hit, eventually selling over half a million copies to be certified Gold by the RIAA. While the band were never able to match that record’s commercial success, they quickly settled comfortably into their role as elder statesmen of alternative rock, remaining to this day a cult act still able to tear it up live and release records that are still as vital as they were in their commercial heyday. For that, they come highly recommended.

Stone Temple Pilots

https://www.songkick.com/artists/368333-stone-temple-pilots/calendar

Stone Temple Pilots (formed in 1985) is an American grunge, psychedelic and alternative rock band from San Diego, California, U.S.

Stone Temple Pilots, formerly known as Swing and Mighty Joe Young, was originally formed of frontman Scott Weiland, bassist Robert DeLeo, drummer Eric Kretz and guitarist Dean DeLeo. As Mighty Joe Young the band recorded and released a demo in 1990, many of which tracks featured on the band’s debut LP. After developing a fan base by playing regularly in the San Diego area they were informed the name Mighty Joe Young had already been claimed and thus came Stone Temple Pilots.

The band signed with Atlantic Records in 1992, the same year Stone Temple Pilots released their debut album “Core” which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200. The album claimed significant commercial success, however the band were seen by the critical press as grunge imitators, copying the revered band such as Pearl Jam and Alice in Chains.

Stone Temple Pilots debuted the song “Big Empty” on an episode on MTV Unplugged in 1993 in anticipation of their sophomore album “Purple” in June 1994. Selling over three million copies in just four months, “Purple” was led by the hits “Vasoline” and “Interstate Love Song”.

Taking a more glam rock, psychedelic rock direction Stone Temple Pilots’ third studio album “Tiny Music… Songs from the Vatican Gift Shop” was recorded at a rented mansion in Santa Barbara, California, U.S. The album was a favourite of the band’s among critics although it failed to hold such popular commercial appeal as its predecessors. After the release Weiland, who had previously struggled with a heroin addiction, relapsed and the band cancelled their tour and support lot on Kiss’ reunion tour.

The band without Weiland under the moniker Talk Show released one eponymously titled album in 1997 before calling it a day. A year later frontman Weiland released his debut solo album “12 Bar Blues” in 1998 to moderate critical acclaim. The same year Stone Temple Pilots reunited and began work on “Shangri-La Dee Da” which got its release in the summer of 2001, although with a lack of label promotion the album was a commercial disappointment.

In 2003 label Atlantic Records pushed a greatest hits album, and frontman Weiland formed the successful supergroup Velvet Revolver with Guns N’ Roses members Slash, Matt Sorum and Duff McKagan and former Wasted Youth guitarist Dave Kushner. After releasing two album “Contraband” in 2004 and “Libertad” in 2007, Weiland left the group.

Stone Temple Pilots’ members reconciled with one another at a private beach party they were asked to play which led to the announcement of a 65-date North American tour and an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Shortly after in 2008 Weiland released his sophomore solo album ““Happy” in Galoshes” and the Stone Temple Pilots release a self-titled sixth studio album on May 25, 2010.

In 2013 it was announced Weiland had been fired from the group and his official replacement Chester Bennington of Linkin Park. Stone Temple Pilot’s include Bennington release the single “Out of Time” in May 2013.

Alice In Chains

https://www.songkick.com/artists/496981-alice-in-chains/calendar

Alice in Chains (formed in 1987) is an American alternative metal and grunge-influenced rock band who made their breakthrough in 1992 album with the full-length “Dirt”, hailing from Seattle, Washington, U.S.

Initially formed as Alice N’ Chains to dispel connotations of female bondage, the band’s early lineup included Layne Staley, guitarists Johnny Bacolas and Zoli Semanate, drummer James Bergstrom, and bassist Byron Hansen. Staley subsequently met guitarist Jerry Cantrell at Music Bank rehearsal studios, while working with Alice N’ Chains, and the two began living together. It wasn’t long before Staley and Cantrell were playing live together, and alongside drummer Sean Kinney and bassist Mike Starr, ultimately formed Alice in Chains.

The band recorded an early demo tape, “The Treehouse Tapes”, aided by local promoter Randy Hauser, which caught the attentional of Columbia Records. By 1989 Alice in Chains were signed to Columbia’s roster, and released their debut promotional EP “We Die Young” in July 1990. The EP and lead single “We Die Young” both generated considerable success for the band, turning Alice in Chains into one of the label’s top priorities.

The group’s debut studio album “Facelift” was issued by Columbia in August 1990, peaking at No. 42 on the Billboard 200. Bridging the musical gap between grunge/alt-rock and heavy metal, the record proved a huge success aided by the singles “Man in the Box” and “Sea of Sorrow”. In support of the LP Alice in Chains toured extensively in support of Iggy Pop, Van Halen, Poison, and Extreme, before opening on the Clash of the Titans Tour.

Alice in Chain’s subsequent release was the acoustic EP “Sap” inspired by a dream drummer Sean Kinney had. Popularised by fellow Seattle-based band Nirvana, whose album “Nevermind” was at the top of the charts, Alice in Chain’s recognition was growing at an increasing rate. Focusing on the subject of addiction, with songs written on the road, the band’s sophomore full-length “Dirt” was released in September 1992. Rising to No. 6 on the Billboard 200, the record earned widespread critical acclaim, later being certified four-times platinum. Spawning the Top 30 singles “Would?”, “Rooster”, “Them Bones”, “Angry Chair”, and “Down in a Hole”, the record was supported by an opening slot for Ozzy Osbourne and on the 1993 Lollapalooza tour.

A second acoustic EP followed in 1994 entitled “Jar of Flies”, which subsequently became the first-ever EP to top the Billboard 200. Hauntingly sorrowful, the EP was written and recorded in one week and spawned the singles “No Excuses” and “I Stay Away”. Following a hiatus in which Staley entered rehab for his heroin addiction and joined the supergroup Mad Season, Alice In Chains released their self-titled, third album in November 1995. Once again topping the U.S. Billboard 200, the record earned a wave of esteemed reviews, following which the group recorded and released an MTV Unplugged session in 1996.

Following two years of struggles for Staley in 1998 he reunited with Alice in Chains to record two new songs “Get Born Again” and “Died”. The band went on to release a string of box-sets and compilation albums including “Nothing Safe: Best of the Box” and “Greatest Hits”, before in April 2002, Layne Staley was found dead in his condominium. The remaining members of Alice in Chains, including new vocalist William DuVall, returned in 2005 to play a benefit concert in aid of the tsunami disaster. Four years later, ahead of their fourth studio album, Alice in Chains released the single “A Looking in View” in June 2009. The full-length “Black Gives Way to Blue” followed in September, featuring Elton John on the title track. In 2013 Alice in Chains release their fifth studio album “The Devil Put Dinosaurs Her”, led by the singles “Hollow”, “Stone”, and “Voices”.

Incubus is an American rock band from Calabasas, California and currently consists of Brandon Boyd, Mike Einziger, Jose Pasillas, Chris Kilmore and Ben Kenney.

Incubus was formed in 1991 by vocalist Brandon Boyd, guitarist Mike Einziger, bassist Alex Katunich and drummer Jose Pasillas, while the members were in high school. Incubus influences include Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, Red Hot Chili Peppers and their sound crosses the genres of alternative rock, heavy metal, funk and electro. For a while the band were nameless, until being asked to provide one for an upcoming show and Incubus was born from there on. They cut their teeth at some of the most infamous venues on the Los Angeles Sunset strip including The Roxy and The Troubadour.

The band had to juggle early recordings around their school work, but in 1995 they completed their first two song EP with producer Gavin Koppell. They released their first album ‘Fungus Amongus’ on their own label before later signing to Immortal Records which became Epic Records. In 1997, the band supported Korn on their European tour and promoted their first major label release, the six track ‘Enjoy Incibus’ EP.

The band spent a whole year touring their second album ‘S.C.I.E.N.C.E’ and thanks to radio and TV exposure, it went on to sell over 100,000 copies. This laid the foundations for the critically acclaimed release of ‘Make Yourself’ which has now been certified double platinum in the States and featured their first hit single ‘Drive’ which cracked the top 10 of the Billboard Charts. After this release, the band continued to go from strength to strength with their releases, they toured the world over and over promoting the likes of ‘Morning View’ and ‘A Crow Left of The Murder…’ which saw their chart success increase in countries such as the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Their 2006 release ‘Light Grenades’ topped the US Billboard charts and played huge sets at festivals worldwide including Download, Rock Am Ring and Pinkpop.

In 2008 the band took a short hiatus to concentrate on family, education and general life. On March 11, 2009, Incubus posted an update to their official site detailing the new Greatest Hits album ‘Monuments and Melodies’ which charted at #5 on the US Billboard Charts when it was released on June 16 2009. They posted a photograph of themselves working in the studio in 2014 which would allude to a new album being released imminently whilst they have confirmed they will be attending Australia’s SoundWave music festival in 2015.

Dirty heads is a reggae-punk fushion band out of Huntington Beach, California, US formed in 1996. The founding members, MC, Jared “Dirty J” Watson and vocalist/guitarist, Dustin “Duddy B” Bushell met at a party in high school.

Bushell was in a punk band and had recorded some hip-hop demo tapes and the two started collaborating, recording in Bushell’s garage. They created their blend of pop-punk, reggae and hip-hop that was to see them through their recording career under the name “Dirty Head”, which was apparently the name they earned from their family members in their garage days.

Before long they had formed a full band with other members, percussionist Jon Olazabal, drummer Matt Ochoa, and bassist David Foral. They were scheduled to release their first album, “Any Port in a Storm” with Warner Brothers but decided they’d stick it to the big record label and went with EMG.

The first single, “Lay Me Down”, featuring Rome Ramirez from Sublime with Rome, got them a Number 1 slot on the Billboard Alternative Song Chart for 2010.

The rest of the album was a symposium of big wigs including Beatles sessioner and R&B multi-instrumentalist, Billy Preston, Vandals drummer, Josh Freese and reggae singer Tippa Irie.

Dirty Heads began to tour regularly, supporting the likes of Unwritten Law, 311 and Matisyahu.

After a recording hiatus, they put out “Cabin by the Sea”, which also hosted a bunch of cameos including Kymani Marley on “Your Love”, a reappearance of Rome Ramirez on “Mongo Push”, Matisyahu on “Dance All Night”, and hip-hop veteran and cameo machine Del the Funky Homosapien on “Smoke Rings”.

Their studio album, “Sound of Change”, debuted at Number 1 on the Billboard Alternative Albums Chart, with the single “My Sweet Summer” drawing in a new electronic infusion to their rootsy reggae sound, resulting in a dolled-up dancehall number with a melancholic undercurrent, its chorus channeling some the jilted blues tracks of the 1960s, perhaps most recognizably Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine”.
