“Super Jam Plays Squeeze” presented by Roseta Productions, debuts at Seattle’s dinner club, the Triple Door, Friday April 12th at 7:30pm. Super Jam will perform every song from Squeeze’s 1982 hit album “Singles 45’s and Under”, plus many more Squeeze favorites. Super Jam includes members of Apple Jam, Lucas Field, and 80s Invasion.
“Singles 45’s and Under” gathers a dozen of Squeeze's classic power-pop hits into one platinum collection. It represents their prime -- from Chris Difford croaking out "Cool for Cats," to Glenn Tilbrook chiming "Annie Get Your Gun," to Paul Carrack crooning the delightful "Tempted." It’s no wonder the songwriting duo of Difford and Tilbrook were then hailed as ‘The New Lennon and McCartney.’
Steve Roseta just wrote us with this update about the event: “We have just learned that The Triple Door will be offering a specialty cocktail that night called "Tempted" (the name of Squeeze's most popular song). To coincide with the lyric "Tempted by the fruit of another...." the drink will be fruit flavored (exact recipe is in the works). I also think this lines up nicely with the poster cover art with the line drawing of the cocktail glass!”
Seattle based Super Jam brings authentic live renditions of seminal pop albums to the stage with world-class musicianship and showmanship. (See their facebook page and their Facebook event page.) Also listen to them on Seattle's Oldies station, the Bob Rivers Show, KJR (95.7) March 26.
