Seattle's Super Jam puts the Squeeze on at The Triple Door

I've always been a fan of British New Wave, Pop band Squeeze. So it was pretty cool to attend the April 12th show at Seattle's Triple Door of the Squeeze tribute done by some fantastic Seattle musicians going by the name of "Super Jam." The show was titled, “Super Jam Plays Squeeze” and was presented by Roseta Productions. Super Jam performed Squeeze’s 1982 hit album “Singles 45’s and Under” in it's entirety with a few extras thrown in. If you are familiar with the Seattle music scene and you were at this event, then you might have recognized everyone in the band. "Super Jam" included members of "Apple Jam," "Lucas Field," and "80s Invasion."

I have watched " M/V Gentlemen " several times and cannot believe what I am watching! There is really nothing original about the video. Sure, there isn't a horse or red Mercedes in this one. But he's got the same people that were in his other video, like the yellow suited guy. I am really disappointed to say the least! I don'
