The Main Squeeze

The Main Squeeze is a raging funk experience born within the thriving live music scene of Bloomington, Indiana, and currently residing in Chicago, IL. Since coming together in late 2009 The Squeeze have managed to establish a unique sound and identity in a short period of time. 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.

Strange Machines

Boston-born, New England based quartet Strange Machines have been steadily making a name for themselves in the East Coast jam scene. A true melting pot of musical fusion, with sounds catering to funk, livetronica, rock, reggae and a multitude of other genre’s, all while stringing them together seamlessly to create a fluid and captivating live performance. Their original songs are nuanced by creative composition, practiced precision, and a looseness that allows them to truly explore the music they create.
 
They have shared the stage with national-touring acts such as The Disco Biscuits, Twiddle, Dopapod, EOTO, The Motet, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Turkuaz, Kung Fu, TAUK, Deep Banana Blackout and more. Strange Machines have carved out their own niche in the east coast music scene and beyond and show no signs of slowing down.
