Monday, July 14: The Main Squeeze
|The Main Squeeze|
|Date:||July 14, 5:30 pm|
|Location:||Center for the Arts Outdoor Stage|
|Details:||The Main Squeeze is a raging funk experience born within the thriving live music scene of Bloomington, Indiana, and currently residing in Chicago. 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 released their debut self-titled album in June 2012. Much like each member's varied backgrounds and influences, the album 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," 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.
Alpenglow concerts are held on the outdoor stage at the Center, rain or shine. They are free and open to the public.
