"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 bends the boundaries of music... fusing jazz, indie, & rock in ways you've never heard before. Since their mysterious formation in 2003, they have performed hundreds of shows, dozens of festivals & tours, released several albums, music videos, and created an award-winning web series & movie score. Now ocassionally playing with a full-size jazz band, Squeegee's horn-driven instrumentation and orchestrations are being 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)
With a strong fan-base in the jazz, rock, & ska scene, the band was able to share the stage with main acts like The Ginblossoms, Streetlight Manifesto, Weezer, Reel Big Fish, As Tall As Lions, Ludo, The Aquabats, Flobots, and The Cherry Poppin' Daddies... earning them slots on Warped Tour, Tempe Music Festival, Fall Frenzy, & Edgefest. 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 projected. They were awarded "Best album of 2008" and "Best hope of 2009" by French web-zine Progressia, and recently swept the LAWebFest 2011 & 2012 for "Outstanding Music" & Video Directing... even earning seats on international discussion Panels. "The serio-comedy of their Web Saga is engaging and the music is both illuminating and exhilarating Pushing the boundaries of rhythm and harmony" (Marc Puricelli, New York Jazz)
In their most recent years, the group created the "Lucidity Web-Saga" as writers, actors, and musicians, composing an award-winning movie score & writing it's theme song ("Your Own Invention"), which they recorded in a pyramid. More recently Captain Squeegee has worked too with the community, comissioned to make educational songs & animations for Public Transportation, and instructing music to s at "Camp Jam" in AZ & CA. They now draw large crowds at home, headlining their own Marquee shows, where elaborate shows are themed toward Jazz-band fusion, UFO's, Psychic-Experimentation, Lucid Dreaming, and even Ron Paul Rallies... "but unpredictable and uncalled for are what Captain Squeegee specializes in." (Pop'Stache Rebiew)
