The Squeezettes are...
Chanel le Meaux
The five-time WAMI (Wisconsin Area Music Industry) award-winning SQUEEZETTES (Best Polka Artist-2023, 2017, 2015, 2013, 2012) are noted as one the state’s most unique attractions. Their repertoire includes traditional polkas and waltzes, blended with pop hits from the 1950’s through the 80’s, along with tunes you never thought you’d hear played on accordion.
Where else but Milwaukee would you find such a high-energy band fronted by ex-burlesque chanteuse-turned-old-school torch singer, Chanel le Meaux; with colorful little ladies, Pamela (Big Surprise) Scesniak and Linda (Tiny Bubbles) Mueller squeezing big beautiful Baldoni accordions; Mike Chaltry on "free-range" tuba; Mike (Animal) Eells on vocals and pickle bucket? If you’re looking for a good time, call the Squeezettes!
"The Squeezettes are a band that takes chances
and breaks a few rules. They are indeed the
music makers and the dreamers of dreams."
-Mike Lowe, Fox 6 news interview
