Fresh onto the Denver music scene are Squeaky Feet, a five-piece fusion rock band that, since their formation in late 2019, have managed to create a buzz about themselves with their adventurous, jazz-meets-late-night-dance-party style. Like a number of other pro-active bands and artists since the onset of the pandemic, Squeaky Feet have been able to offer live virtual musical performances, and yesterday the band dropped a new video on their Facebook page: a cover of “One More Red Nightmare” by legendary progressive rock band King Crimson. You can stream the video in full here at the bottom of the article.
In great emulation of King Crimson’s genre-defining musicality, the up and coming Denver rockers do the composition up right. The band’s drummer gracefully navigates Bill Bruford’s interchanging time signatures, while the rest of the band traverses between the heavy and the groovy in the spirit of the original piece. Meanwhile, impressive fretwork on guitar stands in for the epic saxophone solos of Ian McDonald.
Squeaky Feet also have some of their own material available to stream across all music platforms, such as their Squeak EP Vol. 1 which showcases live performances of a few original songs. This weekend, you can catch a livestream performance from Squeaky Feat as part of the virtual music festival Jamcast’s Streamfest Episode 1, hosted by the streaming network JamCast in partnership with Loose Leaf Talent Agency. Squeaky Feet performs Friday at 10PM, while other artists set to appear throughout the weekend are Sophistafunk, Luke The Knife of Lotus, Rob Compa of Dopapod, Desert Dwellers, and many more. Check out more details for that here.
