1. The Variety

Cheese is one of the most diverse foods, encapsulating flavors from sharp to sweet to buttery to earthy. Meanwhile, String Cheese Incident also presents their lovers with the varied experiences of bluegrass, rock, psychedelia, funk, and jazz. Audiences go from swaying, to full-on dancing, to stomping their feet like there’s no tomorrow. The cheesiness is so diverse that anyone will enjoy their flavorsome jams!


2. That Grate Feeling

All cheese lovers can relate to the heavenly feeling of consuming cheese, as multiple studies have shown that eating cheese produces dopamine, which is the chemical that make us happy. And while this may seem cheesy, listening to The String Cheese Incident also gives us that grate feeling inside! It’s no wonder why we can’t help but gorge ourselves on the euphoric sounds of String Cheese.


3. The Community

There are very few communities that are as gouda and friendly as the String Cheese fanbase, and we’re so grateful to be a part of it! Though we may dis-a-brie from time to time over which jam is best, it’s impossible to be mad at one another as we listen to String Cheese shred.


4. The Pairings

While we love cheese alone, there’s no denying that it pairs incredibly well with others, food and drink alike! For instance, we love having Brie with Chardonnay, some Gouda and Merlot, or sprinkling Parmesan over red sauce – cheese just adores mingling with others! Meanwhile, String Cheese pairs well with anyone and knows how to adjust when onstage jamming with others.


5. It’s a Comfort Food

Cheese lovers will tell you that eating a piece of cheese can make a bad day melt away, especially if it’s your favorite type. Cheese is considered one of the top comfort foods and it always makes us feel cheddar when we’re feeling bleu! Listening to The String Cheese Incident turns our frowns into the biggest, cheesiset smiles – thank Cheesus for that!


6. Fun for Everyone

At social gatherings, it seems as though people always gather around the cheese platters, and it’s for a gouda reason! Whether it’s arguing which is the best, or appreciating the sweet and savory flavors together, cheese tasting is always a fun activity, especially when complemented by the spectrum of sounds The String Cheese Incident provides.


7. The Health Benefits

While cheese can be mixed or topped on everything, there are health benefits to eating it alone! Just like eating cheese gives you the calcium you need to strengthen your bones, going to String Cheese shows promotes gouda health as well – dancing around as they jam out is a great work out, not to mention that you’re stretching your face muscles by cheesing so hard the entire time!


8. Only Gets Better with Age

The aging of cheese is an art form that has existed for several thousand years, and as most will agree, cheese only gets better with age. Since their founding in 1993, The String Cheese Incident has matured and grown with their fans. String Cheese constantly proves that they’re still sharp by writing amazing new songs while adding new magic to the old.


9. High Quality Flavors

Good quality cheese is unbeatable and is one of the finer things in life. Though with some other cheeses you might have to worry about consistent good quality, there’s never a reason to fret about String Cheese! It only takes one show to see why so many people are fans of every single one of the flavors they create.


10. It’s Addicting

If cheese addiction isn’t real, then why there is a day dedicated specifically to cheese lovers? Cheese fills a gap in our lives that nothing else can, and The String Cheese Incident is no exception to that. Their perfect artistry has pulled in cheese lovers from all over the country, no doubt inspiring the creation of such a vital holiday. This Cheese Lover's day, be sure to celebrate responsibly by listening to The String Cheese Incident!
