Captain Midnight Band at The Mousetrap – Friday, January 21st

Captain Midnight Band at The Mousetrap - Friday, January 21st

It’s been a wild couple of years, but we’re excited to finally get Captain Midnight Band back to The Mousetrap!

Internationally-ignored superstar, Captain Midnight is the world’s only known purveyor of “Waterbed Rock & Roll”.
Featuring :
Captain Midnight
Lil Rae Rae
Jelly Mac
Wes Lloyd
Jon Mann
Teddy Jones
Crunchy Rock Guitar Riffs, Thick R&B Grooves, and Soaring Vocal Harmonies combine to create a unique, yet familiar soundscape for jammy anthems, sci-fi imagery, and humorous adult situations.

The Captain Midnight Band’s diverse appeal has resulted in club, theater, and festival dates with such acts as Dark Star Orchestra, moe, Billy Strings, Cypress Hill, Twiddle, Marcus King, Leftover Salmon, Cornmeal, N.R.P.S., Karl Denson, TAUK, and many more more.

Flattering comparisons to genre-defying acts such as P-Funk, Frank Zappa, and Ween are evident in the live show, where a genuine, energetic exchange is crafted and nurtured between band, fans, and whoever is lucky enough to be in the vicinity.

About

Captain Midnight Band

The Captain Midnight Band plays “Waterbed Rock & Roll”, a unique hybrid of Classic Rock, Jam, R&B, and blue poetry.

The Captain Midnight Band creates “Water Bed Rock & Roll” for the mind, booty, and soul. Crunchy Rock Guitar, Soaring Vocal Harmonies, and thick R&B grooves create a sonic landscape for the band’s suggestive, Sci-Fi imagery and improvisational interplay.

Formed in New Orleans in 2002, The Captain Midnight Band stays true to the Crescent City’s celebratory heritage, turning every show into a sweating, throbbing event, interspersed with humor, eroticism, and inspired jams.

Flattering comparisons to genre-defying acts such as P-Funk, Frank Zappa, and Ween are evident in the relationship between band and audience. Striking visuals and an ever-changing set list keep fans coming back for more.

Midnight’s style has infiltrated a variety of musical realms. Bob Weir, moe., Merl Saunders, Dumpstaphunk, Galactic, Cornmeal, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Cypress Hill, Jimmy Herring Band, Dark Star Orchestra, Emmitt-Nershi Band, New Mastersounds, and The 2 Live Crew are just a few musical entities Midnight has either shared the stage or bills with.

Major influences include The Grateful Dead, Steely Dan, Funkadelic, George Lucas, KISS, Boz Scaggs, Little Feat, Joe Walsh, Frank Zappa, Joni Mitchell, Todd Rundgren, and Richard Pryor.

About

Bashiri Asad

Acknowledging that each of us has a priceless gift that we must connect to and share with the world, Bashiri has been cultivating a relationship with his voice since childhood. From shoo-wop style singing groups and classical vocal training, to performances local and abroad, his vocal prowess has been growing into the soul-stirring entity it is known as today. The influences of Donny Hathaway, Stevie Wonder, Sam Cooke, and Otis Redding echo in his performance, and those coupled with his own strength and passion have come together to create his version of true soul music, termed “IndySoul.” Seeking to join the ranks of other independent artists looking to breathe new life into the soul music scene, Bashiri has begun to make a name for himself, not just around the region, but around the world. Humble in his approach, relentless in his delivery, you have to experience it to truly understand.
“Music is my weapon of choice, what’s yours?”

About

Saxappeal

Saxappeal’s mission is to rekindle the flame between people and music; which is, unfortunately, flickering dim. His hopes are to touch people through his music, in ways they’ve yet to be touched. With focus, determination, positive energy, love, and a passion deeper than anything he can explain, he uses his horn to tell stories, state his opinions, and celebrate the gift of music through love.

Saxappeal: The name itself brings a new image to the music arena. The young saxophonist, born and raised in Detroit, has been playing since the age of 7. In fact, this young bird, barely able to stand on his own two feet, let alone fly solo, was pushed out of the nest (musically speaking), after a mere 6 months of playing his horn. Now, the extraordinary 36-year-old musician brings anxiety, joy, love, pain, passion, and so many more sensations to the stage while performing. Comfortably known as ‘Sax’, he has scoped out his flying territory and has set his sights high.

Saxappeal recently released his 3rd solo project, entitled “Black Gold”, which peaked at #4 on the iTunes Top 100 Jazz Charts, and has surpassed 100,000 streams on Spotify in it’s first 7 weeks of being released.

Saxophonist/educator/producer/multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Saxappeal continues to build his brand, as well as his style of music. As a co-founder of Jazz/Soul/R&B group Collective Peace, Saxappeal created compositions and arrangements of a high-energy live performance, as well as a critically acclaimed project entitled, “Introducing Collective Peace.” The album received the following accolades:

•”Introducing Collective Peace” peaked at #13 on the iTunes top 100 Jazz Chart with our first single, “Let The Music Play.”
•album (“Introducing Collective Peace”) peaked to #6 on iTunes Jazz Top Albums.
•album (“Introducing Collective Peace”) became the #1 Jazz album on Google Play for two consecutive weeks.
•received many top ratings from music sites and taste-makers, including Soul Train, Soul Bounce, BBC, Dusty Grooves, WDET’s Chris Campbell, and many many more.
•album received tons of spins overseas, in London, Amsterdam, Japan, Taiwan, New Zealand, and more.
•signed digital distribution deals with Bling Univercity, Evry Music, Sweet Soul Records, Urban Union, Expansion Records, Tower Records, Sound Signature, and more.

The group has disbanded as of late 2017.

Now a Grammy nominated recording artist, the 2020 Vote For The Best; Jazz/Blues Award recipient, a 2014 Detroit Music Award nominee for entertainer of the year, and a 2013 Crain’s Detroit Business “20 in their 20’s” Award recipient, Michigan Chronicle’s “40 under 40” Award recipient, and a “Who’s Who in Black Detroit” Award recipient, this ambitious young artist has traveled from coast to coast, performing from intimate venues in Detroit, to sold out arenas in Chicago, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Aruba, Dallas, Minnesota, Atlanta, New York, and Europe, just to name a few.

His first trip to New
York was to perform at the legendary Carnegie Hall at the age of 17.
Saxappeal has also been performing with Granny Award winning
artist, Dwele (also a Detroit native musician/singer/songwriter) since 2005. Saxappeal has also toured with R&B vocalist, K’Jon, France born duo Les Nubians, R&B legend Leon Ware, London’s own powerhouse duo Floetry, Grammy nominated Indie-Soul artist, Eric Roberson, currently touring with keyboardist/producer Zo!, and Carmen Rodgers (of The Foreign Exchange), and is also currently touring with Charlie Wilson (11 time Grammy nominated vocalist, and former lead singer of The GAP Band), who’s opening for Bruno Mars’ XXIVk (24 karat) Magic Tour.

Saxappeal is also endorsed by PJLA Music’s saxophone company, Sax Dakota (www.SaxDakota.com), Danté Neck Straps (www.dantestraps.com), Be Wooden Bow Ties (www.BeWooden.com), Harry Hartmann’s Fiberreeds
(www.Fiberreeds.com) Drake Mouthpieces. (www.drakemouthpieces.com), Applied Music Technology Microphones (http://www.appliedmicrophone.com) Gard Bags (www.gardbags.com), Silverstein Ligatures (http://www.silversteinworks.com), and Ultimate Ears (www.ultimateears.com). In efforts to form his own style,
which he calls ‘SaxSoul’, Saxappeal’s music is diverse with a blend of
jazz, hip-hop, soul, and R & B. This young artist has truly been
humbled by his opportunities and eagerly awaits more.
