Welcome To Bob Gruen's Home on the Web
Squeezebox - a party started by Michael Schmidt, has been running at Don Hill's club in New York for years. It's been a great party of straight and gay rock'n'rollers with bands and guest spots backed by a rockin' house band that can play anything and make it fun. In such a wildly varied crowd, MC Miss Formica always made everyone feel welcome and we've had so many great times there. Friday May 18th was the final party - this page shows a few scenes from the last night.

The sign outside made the usually out of the way place easy to find

When I first walked in the place was already so hot and crowded that it was like a sauna, and the first photo I took, this one of Deborah Harry, John Waters, and Michael Schmidt was foggy from the moisture on the lens

Everyone got in the act as Jayne leads a rousing version of her hit song, "If you don't want to fuck me baby, Baby, fuck off!"
