The Lincoln Squares
Michael Mahler (guitar) and Alan Schmuckler (piano) are critically-acclaimed actors, musicians, singers, and songwriters who've made their mark on the Chicago theatre scene; now, with their band The Lincoln Squares, they're taking their act on the road. Featuring Jim Barclay (drums), Derek Hasenstab (bass), and Alex Goodrich (banjo, ukelele, harmonica & saw), they combine the pop/rock of Ben Folds, the poetic folk of Paul Simon and the churning drive of Mumford and Sons. Their original songs bubble with idiosyncratic honesty, and their performances are marked by charm and ease.
