Captain Squeegee
Captain Squeegee
"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".
Young's Modulus
Young's Modulus
Forged in the crucible of the Arizona Desert, Young's Modulus has emerged like a Phoenix from the ashes of an ailing music industry. A group of seasoned musicians, Young's Modulus has combined rock-solid songwriting with the familiar tones of their youth to create a new, signature sound for a new century.

Comprised of musical veterans Mike Johnson (singer/guitarist), Todd Becker (guitarist), Sean Paulson (bassist), and Tom Combs (drummer), Young's Modulus has crafted an eclectic set of songs that suggest wide-ranging influences such as Bob Marley to Pearl Jam, Rancid to The Smiths, Stone Temple Pilots to Catherine Wheel, Social Distortion to REM, and Pink Floyd to the Old 97's.

With a four song EP in the works and coming out soon, the public will soon get to hear a small sample of the original catalog of songs written by a band that just formed in the early part of this year. With a full album's worth of songs already composed, Young's Modulus will be in the studio to record their debut album over the next few months. But, don't worry! In the meantime, you can catch Young's Modulus in a live setting! Whether unplugged and acoustic or plugged-in and loud, Young's Modulus is playing some of the freshest music in town and acquiring news fans each and every time they play out!

With a sound that brings the cooks and wait staff out of the kitchen to check them out, Young's Modulus is playing some of the freshest, most compelling music out there right now. Do yourself and favor, and go check them out! And, bring a friend!

Panic Baby
Panic Baby
Phoenix rock quartet Panic Baby formed in late 2015 when vocalist Raquel Willand performed a quick search on Craigslist. The very first ad that caught her attention led her to guitarist Jared Wood. A month later, the same ad brought bassist Nick Smith. Originally performing under the name "The Real Fits," it wasn't until mid-2017 that, with the addition of Devin Russell on drums, Panic Baby was born. The name was inspired by a lyric in a new song.
Daisy
Daisy
DAISY was formed in 2013 with Anthony Perre, Michael Petry, Dylan Kielly, and Caleb Robinson. They all attended the same highschool together and started playing after their graduation in 2013. Towards the end of 2013, Caleb Robinson had taken opportunities in Portland, OR and had to leave the band, and had the three others, looking for another member to join. During this time, Anthony had come across Warner Music Group Recorder & Producer Hiram Hernandez and teamed up to work on the first EP titled "In Retrospect". The record was made in the mid summer of July 2015. Shortly after finishing up the record, Ty Kidd, from New Hampshire/Boston area, had been added right in after moving to Arizona 4 months prior to attend the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences right in Gilbert.
