Mousetrap 20th Anny Night #2 feat. Max Allen Band & The Twin Cats & Chocolate George Band - Saturday, August 13th

Our 20 Year Anniversary Celebration Weekend- Night #2

20 years ago this August, The Mousetrap assumed new ownership and a brand new direction. As we started bringing bands to that old 1st stage, there were a few that always stood out. This weekend, to honor of the success of the past 20 years, we are bringing pack 4 of the bands that started it all. All 4 of these bands were pretty much playing The Trap from the very beginning- back when there was no cover. Yep, some of you remember those days. Well, it was because of the excellence of these 4 bands in particular that we had to step up our game. Soon enough it was $3 (with that came a sound guy- kind of), then $5 (lights!) and we were off.

The Shadyside All-Stars, Acoustic Flyer, The Max Allen Band and The Twin Cats (and a few others) are very much the reason The Mousetrap is what it is today. Help us celebrate all weekend! We’ll have vendors, great food specials and “Music Sweet Music”

About


Max Allen Band

Max Allen Band (MAB) is the brainchild and workhorse of singer/songwriter/guitarist/producer Max Allen. Performing professionally since the age of 16, Allen got his start by selling home recordings out of a lunchbox at school, later making waves as an upcoming blues guitar prodigy. Some thirteen years later, he has grown into a seasoned performer and composer whose tastes have evolved to include the very best of funk, rock, blues, pop, jazz, reggae, classical, EDM and hip-hop. For over a decade, Allen and MAB have kept audiences all over the country coming back for more of the wide variety of genres, incredible musicianship, thoughtful lyrics and contagious melodies that each show brings. Max Allen has six studio albums and thousands of performances to his credit, and he is still going strong.

Armed with a newly solidified lineup that features more talent than ever before, Max Allen Band is proud to present its 2013 release, Everyone Thinks You’re Weird. The album features many new territories for the band, from bassist Dace Robie’s lush string quartet arrangements to drummer Shaan France’s layered percussion to Max Allen’s most sophisticated and exciting solo work to date. ETYW also features additional keys and synths from composer/producer Gary Mielke and vocals by Midwest hip-hop favorite Rusty Redenbacher.

Another exciting new feature of ETYW is the songwriting team that is Allen and Robie, whose diverse backgrounds and tastes complement each other wonderfully. The album creates a journey through contrasts: light to dark, catchy to complex, and old school to fresh and new. Max Allen keeps listeners guessing with a recording that features everything from pop to progressive rock to dubstep to calypso and more, all the while bringing out Max Allen’s signature vocal and guitar sound. ETYW is the culmination of a rich musical past for MAB and marks the beginning of a bright new era of music making for the band.
