The String Cheese Incident at State Theatre @ State Theatre
May 19 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm
The String Cheese Incident at State Theatre @ State Theatre | Portland | Maine | United States

The past three decades have written a story packed full of surreal experiences, epic moments, groundbreaking involvement and huge accomplishments. The String Cheese Incident has been recognized for their commitment to musical creativity and integrity, for their community spirit, philanthropic endeavors, and for their innovative approach to the business of music.

When The String Cheese Incident’s growth first started gaining momentum in the 1990s, as the Internet was just beginning to take hold and the major-label business model was failing, the band decided to make music on their own terms.

Since then, The String Cheese Incident has gone on to carve out a completely unique approach to the business of music; they are truly pioneers of a new way of “making a band.” With the Internet as their tool, SCI was among the first artists to disseminate information online, such as tour dates, release information, and other news, to their growing fan base. Rather than doing business on such terms as “the bottom line,” SCI put their music and their fans first, opening companies of their own, including a ticketing company, a merchandise company and a fan travel agency, to best serve their community. The band’s record label, SCI Fidelity Records, has always operated under the same ideals. Even early on, SCI Fidelity embraced downloadable music and file sharing, delivering SCI’s “On The Road” series, where every show the band plays is made available for download on the Internet. Whether they realized it at the time or not, The String Cheese Incident was inventing grassroots band development. Today, literally hundreds of bands are using some version of this same approach to build their brand.

The String Cheese Incident’s commitment goes well beyond their immediate community, and even beyond the music community as a whole. Early on, the band took a serious interest in giving back to the communities that they visited, and they were among the first performers to encourage “Green” shows and tours. SCI’s support has helped give rise to such not-for-profit organizations as Conscious Alliance and HeadCount. All the while, The String Cheese Incident has stayed committed to music as a creative endeavor, not just in their recordings but also in their live performances. The list of SCI’s special guests and collaborators is long and diverse. Their annual events such as Electric Forest and Hulaween, and holiday shows such as New Year’s Eve, have helped redefine the concert experience and have garnered the band a reputation as live music vibe innovators.

Live music with Joan Kennedy Band

Encompassing a career that has spanned more than 3 decades, Canadian-born & raised singer/songwriter Joan Kennedy has accumulated more accolades and awards than most.

The youngest of 8 children and a workingman’s daughter, Joan’s love for music started at an early age when the whole family would sing songs around the kitchen table after her father returned from his day’s work. Making her family proud, Joan went on to enter & win a Canadian National Talent contest in the early ‘80’s which sparked her professional music career.

Joan’s achievements speak for themselves. She’s recorded 6 albums with MCA & Koch International, toured Canada, the USA, & Europe, starred in a 2-season television series, and was 2nd to only Garth Brooks as Canadian Country Music Radio’s most played artist. She has also been the nominee of:

  • Album of the Year
  • Single of the Year
  • Fan’s Choice
  • Female Artist of the Year
  • Independent Artist of The Year
  • 2 Juno Award Nominations
  • CMT’s Canadian Video of the Year

And the recipient of:

  • CCMA’s Humanitarian Award
  • East Coast Music Assoc Entertainer of the Year
  • New Brunswick Music Hall of Fame Member

Joan’s hard work and dedication to community service also deserves recognition as she was awarded CCMA’s Humanitarian Award for her work with the Children’s Make a Wish Foundation and currently volunteers for Maine’s Cancer Coalition. Today, Joan spends countless hours volunteering at her children’s schools and has been hosting a Nationally Syndicated children’s TV show in Boston, The Ribert & Robert Show.
