Loading Dock Concerts 2.0: Mainesqueeze


The Loading Dock Concert series is back! All Loading Dock Concerts are outdoors and will be brought to you from the loading dock at 319 Vaughan Street. Feel free bring your own lawn chair!

MAINESQUEEZE (not to be confused with the accordion band, The Maine Squeeze) is a brilliant mix of rhythm & roots,Texas-swing, folk, country and more with 3-part harmonies, hot guitar and pedal steel.

Though some of the band's songs are familiar it's their unusual song choices that leave audiences smiling and scratching their heads.

Sammie Haynes and Doug Bennett share the title of lead vocalist - their interactions and vocal blend truly breathe new life into old songs. Add thoughtful and impeccable sidemen Bruce Derr (pedal steel) and Jonathan Booth (bass/lead guitarist) into the mix and you have every good reason to make sure you don't miss their shows.

Doug's understated musical stamp and his uncanny ability to track down tunes by the likes of The Delmore Brothers, Ella Mae Morse, Moon Mullican, and Memphis Minnie keeps the band on its quirky axle and sets it apart. From sultry ballads to flat-out fun, they squeeze it all in.
