When the five funkiest, most soulful, talented individuals come together to create music, you get one of my all time favorites: The Main Squeeze. A young group, only coming together about six years ago, The Main Squeeze has been wowing crowds and musicians alike with what they’ve done since their start. Their mix of genres, taking influence from greats such as Jimi Hendrix and Snarky Puppy can maybe best be described as funky, soul-filled rock, taking influence from each members background.
They have not always been friends, but instead all sort of happened upon each other. Keyboardist Ben Silverstein and Guitarist Max Newman met at a camp in New York, which set their future into motion. After the two moved to Bloomington, Indiana, they joined forces with drummer Reuben Gingrich, bassist Jeremiah Hunt, and frontman Corey Frye, truly coming together in the summer of 2010, and dropping an EP appropriately titled ‘First Drops’ in 2011. Featuring seven tracks, it offered just a taste of what was yet to come; the following release, a self titled album, was certainly no disappointment.
Dropped in 2012, the Main Squeeze exploded, launching themselves forward, enlarging their already growing following and starting to perform at festivals, including Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, Summer Camp, and North Coast. To date, they continue to gather a large following, with due right, and have now released a music video for “Angelus” off their new album, ‘Mind Your Head,’ and are on tour.
They are now based out of Chicago, but you can catch them on tour for their new album, playing at an upcoming festival, or in the crowd supporting artists anywhere they go. Garnering attention from industry giants and musical masters, there is surely no stopping them. So, mind your head, and prepare to see the funkiest group of gents take over the Vogue this Saturday alongside Audiodacity.
