TWO SHOWTIMES Thursday, August 27, 2020 at 4:30 pm and 7:30 pm
Decades ago, Kyle Hollingsworth set out on a career in music. With a wealth of desire and an abundance of ability, Hollingsworth has established himself as a formidable and versatile music talent deftly able to contribute, collaborate, compose, and communicate on a number of levels and within a vast spectrum of musical environments. Today, as a member of acclaimed jam masters The String Cheese Incident, Hollingsworth is revered by both peers and fans for his ability to write and perform in a mosaic of styles, from rock to classical, ragtime to bebop. Playing in SCI has allowed him unrestricted access to the world of music, and has bestowed on him the kind of fearlessness a composer needs to flirt with such disparate genres. Those who’ve seen SCI know that they can jerk from funk to bluegrass on a chord change. “In the jam world, where there are no set ways of doing things, we’re not afraid to move in and out of genres,” he says, “and because of that, I’ve learned to be creative, not only on stage but in the studio. I can get on board with something pretty quickly. You have to.”

Kyle Hollingsworth will be joined by the following artist:
Jason Hann – Jason Hann was born in Miami, Florida. His father is a musician and his mother Colombian and with that background, he ended up with an education in music and a great grounding in all sorts of styles including global rhythms and contemporary rock and rap. “I learned to play drums and percussion from watching my dad’s band after school,” he remembers. “I eventually took lessons and started playing professionally at clubs when I was 12. I made a habit of learning traditional rhythms from other cultures outside of school while constantly staying in touch with modern pop music styles.” Hann has played percussion with hundreds of artists including Dr. Dre, Rickie Lee Jones and Isaac Hayes, taking in a rich and diverse set of styles along the way.
