Biography

The Main Squeeze is a raging funk experience born within the thriving live music scene of Bloomington, Indiana. Since coming together in late 2009 The Squeeze have managed to establish a unique sound and identity in a short period of time. Some of their most recent accomplishments include....

Winning an international battle of the bands in Macau, China for over $32,000 against bands from all over the World.

Handpicked by Rolling Stones Magazine to open for The Roots and Janes Addiction at the official Superbowl XLVI tailgate party in Indianapolis.

Played for over 1,000 fans at Bonnaroo Music Festival in 2012.

The Squeeze just released their debut self titled album in June 2012. Much like each member's varied backgrounds and influences, the album itself contains an eclectic blend of inspiration which seamlessly navigates through funk, rock, electro, and jazz, while still rooting itself in something that's uniquely their own. Whereas 'First Drops' found the band searching for their voice in the studio, their newest offering picks up miles beyond where they left off. Just one listen to tracks like the epic "I'll Take Another" (clocking in at nearly ten minutes), the soulful trifecta of "Where Do We Go", or the impeccable horn arrangements on "Mama Told Me" and it's clear that the band possesses a musical maturity well beyond their years.

Their unique ability to tackle and funkify such a wide variety of music makes each show a unique experience in its own right. Their live performances, which fuse soulful vocals, intricate jams, tight grooves, and ripping solos have helped them develop a dedicated and rapidly growing fan base in the Midwest and the East Coast earning them slots at music festivals such as Bonnaroo, Summer Camp, Equifunk, Big Pig, and GlowFest.

If you’ve ever wondered whether the juice is worth the squeeze, you should look no further - The Main Squeeze is sure to be hitting a city near you sometime soon, leaving their crowd funkified and freshly squozen.
