Captain Squeegee, a seven-piece psychedelic indie-rock band formed in Mesa Arizona, blends progressive rock, jazz and theatrical music to create a sound that is experimental and complex.

Amy Lynn & The Honey Men is a seven-piece machine that celebrates the music of the legendary Janis Joplin.  The band combines Amy Lynn’s unique flair of quirky, down-to-earth humor with the musicianship of The Honey Men’s team of bari sax, tenor sax, trumpet, keys, bass and drums.

The Bitter Game: Created, written and performed by Keith A. Wallace; co-created and directed by Deborah Stein
The Bitter Game is a one-act play about a young Black man’s experience growing up in the inner city that examines the relationship between a young man and his mother, and their individual struggles to protect each other from what seems like the inevitable outcome. The Bitter Game explores the subtle and often damaging effects of racism, bias, excessive police force and the ripple effect of vicarious trauma in the communities of color. This timely piece of theater that examines the value of Black lives in this country
