Kyle Hollingsworth + Joel Cummins Shows :: April 6-8
Unfortunately due to a death in the family, Joel is unable to perform this weekend. We all greatly apologize. While we have been looking forward to this collaboration, the shows will continue to rock with Kyle Hollingsworth Band and Crosseyed & Phishless.
Kyle would like to buy you a beer though (and one for Joel soon too). Chicago will feature a free keg available while supplies last and all attendees in Milwaukee will receive a free voucher for beer or non-alcoholic drink. Grand Rapids tickets, which are only available at the door, have been lowered to $10, so we can save you some beer money.
All attendees to all three shows will also receive a free raffle ticket for chance to win a 3-day GA pass to Summer Camp Music Festival or 3-day GA pass to Suwanee Hulaween.
"We'll miss Joel on this one, we were really looking forward to this special little collaboration run, but I promise I'll do my best to pull out all the stops for all you Umphreaks and Cheese Heads alike out there and still make it special." -Kyle
Ticket holders who would like refunds in Chicago and Milwaukee (Grand Rapids tickets sold at door only) will be able to find those options at the point of purchase (TicketFly.com), but we hope you choose to rage on with us.
A MESSAGE FROM KYLE:
Following recent celebration of Kyle Hollingsworth's 50th birthday, new information has come to light, proving inaccuracies in the keyboardist's date of birth. Maryland records have produced a birth certificate of Kyle Morgan Hollingsworth from March 2, 1954 - 14 years earlier than previously recognized. Born in Baltimore, the member of The String Cheese Incident insists he is younger than bandmate Bill Nershi. "It's shocking, even to me. There's just no way I'm older than Billy," Hollingsworth claims, still reeling with the news.
Less than a month after his supposed 50th birthday and the release of his fourth solo album, respectively titled 50, Hollingsworth has been forced to recall all of his CDs and vinyl records. Replacement is offered in a statement from SCI Fidelity Records, "We apologize to all of our loyal fans. All CDs and vinyl records must be returned at the point of purchase, where we are excited provide the updated album 64. It's everything 50 offered, plus 28% more."
Apologizing to fans and colleagues, Hollingsworth pleads, “I had no idea I could get older than I already am. I guess it's just the speed of life."
Check out PopMatters' premiere of "Stuff" from my upcoming album, 50, available everywhere March 2.

After 20 years in Boulder, CO, and many years prior in Baltimore, MD, keyboardist of The String Cheese Incident, Kyle Hollingsworth, along with the Hollingsworth family, has relocated to the beaches of Mexico to allow for pursuit of new musical and brewing passions. SCI’s recent tour featuring throwback acoustic sets saw Hollingsworth return to his accordion, igniting his lifelong drive to perform live mariachi.
And with that, Hollingsworth joins the fiercest, most notorious band in Mexican music lore, The Bad Hombres. It’s clear Hollingsworth is hot on his new direction and ready to take on the world with his unusually intense approach. “It’s going to be tremendous, just bigly huge. The Bad Hombres are terrific, terrific people and we’re going to make mariachi great again. You know it, I know it, everybody knows it,” the accordionist explains as he unpacks snorkels and neon floaties in his new Mexican residence.
When Hollingsworth is not on the road or enjoying time with his family, he plans to spend more time perfecting his Mexican lager recipe and exploring the recent findings of Mexican hops. “I’ve found some great new beers down here and even spent a few days behind the bar at the cabana,” he chuckles. “Although, I’m not sure how to card people [for legal drinking age] here.”
It’s no secret that Hombre Tour is relentless, leaving no time for haste, as Hollingsworth hits the road immediately this summer.
