About The Lincoln Squares

Michael Mahler and Alan Schmuckler are critically-acclaimed actors/musicians/singers/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 on drums, Derek Hasenstab on bass, and Alex Goodrich on banjo/ukelele/harmonica/saw, with Schmuckler and Mahler on piano and guitar, the Lincoln Squares are a combination of 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 a charming easy showmanship.
