Big Brazilian Cheese Live at The Public House

January 12 @ 9:00 pm - 11:30 pm

$55 - $60



Members of Big GiganticBrazilian GirlsThe String Cheese Incident, and more are coming together for a special collaboration project dubbed “Big Brazilian Cheese.” The group, made up of Aaron Johnston and Jesse Murphy of Brazilian Girls, along with The String Cheese Incident’s Michael Kang, Big Gigantic’s Dominic Lalli, and John Scofield Uberjam member Avi Bortnick are no strangers to each other and will join forces for what is sure to be an epic Colorado run.

Back in 2015, longtime friends and musical collaborators Johnson, Murphy, and Bortnick, were joined by Kang for a late-night performance at New York City’s DROM following The String Cheese Incident’s performance at The Theatre at Madison Square Garden under The Aaron Johnston Experiment moniker. The “live trance abstraction” turned into a wild night of improvisation and collaboration, and a reunion has been brewing ever since that performance. Now, the collaboration of talented musicians will make a much-anticipated return in January 2018, this time bringing in Big G’s Dom Lalli to join the fold. This combination of uber-talented artists has all the makings of a truly unique musical experience. Johnston, in particular, will be debuting another new project, dubbed J.E.D.I. (Jazz Electronic Dance Improvisation) with members of LettuceBreak Science, and The Nth Power this weekend in Philly, NYC, and Albany.
