PRESENTED BY ZACHARY JOHNSON
A hodgepodge of jazz-influenced instrumental tom-fooleridity, Squeedlepuss was formed in Jacksonville, Florida, by Adam Kenneway (bass), Erik Lofgren (keys), Javian Francis (keys), and Stefan Klein (drums). Their first show was opening for Mike Dillon's band -- the famed vibrophonist who played with Les Claypool (Primus). Within a couple of months the great chemistry and musical potential of the band led them to recruit Paul Miller (guitar/vocals) and Dan Hunting (guitar).
In addition to opening for Mike Dillon Band and playing regularly around Jacksonville, Squeedlepuss had the privilege of opening for such touring acts as Consider The Source, Toubabe Krewe, Bernie Worrell Orchestra and The Fritz. At Bear Creek Music and Arts Festival (Nov. 2013) they shared the bill with The Roots, Bootsy Collins, Lettuce, The New Mastersounds, among many others. In May of 2014 they played Purple Hatter's Ball where they shared the bill with Beats Antique, The Motet, The Nth Power and others. The band has also been touring Florida this year.
Squeedlepuss is fortunate to have several great writers/arrangers who share a common vision and who collaborate to make music that is eclectic, interesting and heartfelt. As Paul Miller puts it, "We're just a bunch of jazz nerds who love all kinds of music."
