Kyle Hollingsworth Band brings Brewski Tour 2017 to Agave on Feb. 19

AVON — Kyle Hollingsworth Band's 2017 Brewski Tour will be making a stop at Agave in Avon today. 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.

Thirty years ago, Hollingsworth set out on a career in music. Since then, with a wealth of desire and an abundance of ability, Hollingsworth has established himself as a formidable and versatile music talent with the ability to contribute, collaborate, compose and communicate on a number of levels and within a vast spectrum of musical environments.

Moving in and out of genres

Hollingsworth is most well known for his keyboard wizardry in the jam-band The String Cheese Incident. Those who've seen String Cheese know that the band can go from funk to bluegrass on a chord change. Playing with such a versatile band has allowed Hollingsworth unrestricted access to the world of music and has bestowed upon him the kind of fearlessness a composer needs to flirt with such disparate genres.

"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 said, "and because of that, I've learned to be creative, not only onstage but in the studio. I can get on board with something pretty quickly. You have to."

The Kyle Hollingsworth Band is no different. It plays a range of different songs from originals to String Cheese and other well-known covers, all the while keeping the crowd moving and grooving.

In addition to the live music, Agave will also be featuring Hollingsworth's latest beer, Hoppopotamus, on tap. Hoppopotamus is a collaboration between Hollingsworth and Funkwerks, a Fort Collins brewery. The brew is a cask-conditioned Belgian-style hoppy blonde ale, and there will be a limited supply available.
