No room for Squares is the brainchild of master bebop drummer Bill Stieger, who has been a fixture on the Minnesota Jazz scene since the 1970’s, when he started playing with the great Saxophone legend Eddie Berger on Sundays at a rib joint in Minneapolis called the Artists’ Quarter. The success of their residency there helped turn that one-night-a-week into a six-nights-a-week transformation of the venue into perhaps the most important Jazz venue ever in Minnesota. Later, Bill played and toured with the Eddie Berger All stars and this newest project from him “No Room For Squares” is perhaps the most legitimately pure Bebop Working Jazz group in Minnesota right now. They have been together for almost 10 years and feature Dale Alexander, who played and came up with Prince. The group also spotlights exciting national Trumpet soloist Omar Abdulkarim.  This show is the essence of what Jazz is.
