Tour Dates

CSZM is back out on tour this LAST AND FINAL SEASON in the NYS region since Captain Squeeze is back from New Orleans, LA. This 18th year as a band will certainly be memorable for its members Greg Speck(accordions), Brian Egan(drums and cymbals), Jim Rissacher(guitars),  James Kirk(basses) and Roberto Vega(frottoir).   It will be the last year as a band since Captain Squeeze is moving to live full time in New Orleans this fall.  Be sure to check out their final tour season and send them off in style at any of these events.  If you wish to book the band for your party, this year may be your last opportunity. We want to deeply thank all the sites that have hired us to share our music since 1996.  It’s been a great ride!  Here’s where we will perform so far this year….
