"The Gods of Music are not dead! They are coming out of retirement for this young group brimming with talent, enthusiasm, and freshness" (French Critic, Jean-Philip Hauuse). With a tremendous seven-member sound, Captain Squeegee leads a legacy to bend the boundaries of music and offer a mind-blowing experience... sonically, visually, & conceptually. Since their mysterious formation in 2003, they allowed fate to arrange their line-up which kept no original members, and assembled the power-house horn section that defines them today. Captain Squeegee has since performed hundreds of shows, dozens of festivals, released three albums, and manifested multiple music videos. Squeegee's instrumentations and orchestrations have been described as "Fantasia music, with lead singer Danny Torgersen making like Mickey in a swirling maelstrom of flying horns, dancing guitars, broken melodies, and mad-prophet vocalizing" (Phoenix New Times)
Even before their internationally acclaimed full length, Nothing vs Everything (2008), the band had been touring across the southwest, surprising audiences with their unique sound and theatrical live shows, where members are constantly switching instruments & interactive graphics are often projected. With a strong fan-base, and no genre, the band was able to share the stage with main acts like Ludo, The Aquabats, The Ginblossoms, Streetlight Manifesto, As Tall As Lions, and The Cherry Poppin' Daddies... further earning them slots at Edgefest, Tempe Music Festival, & Warped Tour. They were even awarded "Best album of 2008" and "Best hope of 2009" by French web-zine, Progressia, which helped spread the music to Europe and Beyond...
Last year the group paired up with the "Lucidity Web-Saga" as actors and musicians, even writing it's theme song, "Your Own Invention", which they recorded in a pyramid. They now draw large crowds at home, where elaborate shows are themed toward political activism, audience psychic-experimentation, the future, and even The G-20 Summit... "but unpredictable and uncalled for are what Captain Squeegee specializes in." (Pop'Stache Rebiew)
In response to the zombie infested waters of the mainstream, Squeegee will continue to offer a new perspective, driving their fans and future fans to open the mind's eye (and ear)... to "See More Clearly".
Twin Ponies is a progressive rock band composed of members of the defunct Tempe indie-alternative band, Tugboat. The band was formed by Wayne Jones, Phillip Hanna, and Jordan Tompkins in 2013. Eventually adding Jacob Lauxman's melodic guitar styling, the group solidified their line-up. Twin Ponies looks to take the grunge influenced sound of their former group and expand it into a new direction.
Instructions is a five piece band playing in the East Valley Area of Phoenix AZ.
