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. Their first studio offering entitled "First Drops," is a seven song EP released in early 2011 which showcases the broad range of styles and influences that each member brings to the table; from rock to jazz, funk to R&B, and hip-hop to electro.
While their first foray into the studio proved successful, the growth that has transpired within the group since it's release has been profound. 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 Summer Camp, Equifunk, Big Pig, and GlowFest. The Squeeze also just had the privilege to open up for The Roots and Jane's Addiction at the official Rolling Stone Magazine Superbowl Tailgate in February 2012.
The Squeeze still reside in Bloomington and have been hard at work compiling new music for their upcoming LP which will be released in April 2012. With a steady stream of unreleased material being tweaked and perfected at each show, its safe to say that they've have found their groove and show no signs of slowing down. 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.
