A Local band channeling the spirit of Gun Club, Violent Femmes, Blur and Jimi Hendrix in a wild but honest mashup of their own style.
A blues, soul, and rockfour-piece from Canterbury, Mainsqueeze take influences from '60s and '70s rock, blues and jazz – think Steely Dan, The Beach Boys, Led Zeppelin, Miles Davis and Pink Floyd to name a few.
This is one of MainSqueeze’s first shows together but individually their musical ventures have taken them around the block – for drummer Denis Curry touring the US in the '90s; for guitarist and front man Andy Lester playing support for the likes of Dr Feelgood, Joe Jackson, Geno Washington and Mungo Jerry in the early 80’s, and more recently award-winning blues artist Katie Bradley. They will be opening the evening's events at 8:30pm.
