Lemon Squeezers Rock Band playing for the first time at Cheers, really fun band!
The Lemon Squeezers are a 4 piece cover band (2 guitars, bass and drums). They cover songs that are not the same old, tired and overplayed songs that seem to be picked by many cover bands. Instead, they decided to find songs you will recognize, by bands you know and “twist” them up a bit to fit the band’s lineup and have a little fun while they are at it… and you will recognize them. But don’t worry, they still have some of those classic songs that everyone wants to hear!
The band formed in 2015. Founding member, Jim Moore (guitar and vocals) has been a local San Diego fixture since age 16. In the summer of 2017 the band needed a bass player and Jim reached out to Dale Cooper (bass and vocals). He has played in various bands and spent over 30 years as a lighting designer and front of house sound engineer for both local and visiting touring bands in San Diego. Soon Jim thought to reach out to his old friend, Tom Tice (guitar and vocals). Tom began his guitar playing journey in junior high, playing in a few garage bands and his high school stage band in the early 1970s. He took a break to start and raise a family, coming back to guitar in the mid 1990s to play with some friends. In the late summer of 2017 they reached out to Bruce Sharp (drums and vocals), who had been playing with all three as part of Tom’s Band Camp House Band to fill the drummer’s throne. Having played and toured for bands since age 18, Bruce brings years of experience to the band along with his “full of life personality”.
The Lemon Squeezers will entertain you, get you (at the least) chair dancing, have you singing along with the band and reminiscing about those songs you thought you’d forgotten!
