Kyle Hollingsworth Hopes for Stage Time with Phish

In his latest blog entry String Cheese Incident keyboard player Kyle Hollingsworth shares a brewing update and anticipates an upcoming gig. As for the letter, he writes, “I am super psyched to be involved in the Fourmile Fire Revival show. The line up is killer and it will be the first time I have played with some of those folks. I have seen Phish many times, but never really met them. And, in fact, I played in a band that performed a tribute set to them at the last Jammy Awards. A bit awkward really, they sat side stage as we performed their music very marginally. Must have been weird for them as well. I am not sure how this whole show will go down, but I hope all the bands get some time to play together. I am looking forward to it!”

Hollingsworth, an avid homebrewer, also has posted the above video, while offering some commentary on the Great American Beer Festival: “On the beer front, I have been talking with a lot of great breweries about doing some more “Kyle brews.” Several of them have already shown some interest in crafting up new brews with me. I would love to do another brew fest next summer and perhaps a benefit this holiday season. Stay tuned… I also went to the Great American Beer Festival this last week, great times and awesome beers. Some of my favorites were Fat Head Brewery and Blind Tiger Brewery, their IPA’s were outstanding. I made a short video of my adventure, from karaoke to silent disco, I got a little crazy this year.”

Following his performance with SCI at the Fourmile Fire Revival benefit, Hollingsworth will next appear with his solo band on November 10 in Milwaukee.
