The Split Squad, self-proclaimed as “America’s Least Famous Supergroup,” are comprised of Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Clem Burke of Blondie on drums, guitarist Eddie Munoz of The Plimsouls, guitarist Keith Streng of The Fleshtones, bassist and lead vocalist Michael Giblin of Cherry Twister and Parallax Project and keyboardist Josh Kantor of The Baseball Project. Kantor is also the organist for MLB’s Boston Red Sox at Boston’s Fenway Park. The band took its name from the practice of MLB teams sending two separate sets of players, known as split squads, to play two different teams in separate locations during preseason Spring Training.

The band’s sophomore effort Another Cinderella, which follows 2014’s Now Hear This…, benefits not just from the band’s veteran lineup but also from the contributions of special guests that include Jason Victor (The Dream Syndicate), Brian Hurd (Daddy Long Legs), David Minehan (The Neighborhoods/Aerosmith/The Replacements), Scott McCaughey (R.E.M./The Baseball Project/The Young Fresh Fellows), Joe Adragna (The Junior League) and violinist Deni Bonet.
