The Main Squeeze are a local funk/jam band out of Indiana University, but they seriously have the chops to go along way. Their music has the upbeat tightness of Soulive with the fat booty shaking jams of groups like Dumpstaphunk and the Meters. You can find The Main Squeeze throwing down almost every week either at a house party or one of the local bars, and they bring it absolutely every time. They bring their signature dirty funk in every song, and they can stretch out the jams for days. Plus every member of the group can shred. Even the drummer...he can shred on the drums.
Right now, they keep very local, but these guys are starting to expand their territory with a slot at The Equifunk and Summer Camp festivals this summer, but if you get a chance to see them, do it. They turn every venue they play into an all-out dance party.
They recently dropped their first album, appropriately titled First Drops for free over the Internet. It's a 7 song EP that shows how far they can take the funk. Check out "Ebaneezer"
