The Main Squeeze - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
The Main Squeeze
Seamlessly blending Funk, Soul, and Rock n’ Roll, The Main Squeeze promises to keep your body moving with their infectious feel-good musical gumbo.

The energetic five-piece found its roots in Bloomington Indiana’s surprisingly vibrant live music scene, and they have been leaving audiences “Freshly Squozen” since 2010.

Their ability to fluidly blend and bend genres is unparalleled, and creates for an unforgettable live experience. Every performance is different from the last, showcasing each member’s virtuosic talent with soulful vocals, intricate jams, tight grooves and powerful solos.

Since their inception, The Main Squeeze has amassed a remarkably loyal and rapidly growing national fan base. They’ve graced the stages at some of the country’s biggest festivals, including: Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, Phases of the Moon and Gathering of The Vibes. In addition, they put their stamp on the Rolling Stone Super Bowl XLVI Pre-Party and dazzled music lovers at the International Battle of the Bands in Macau. Having shared the stage with artists like The Roots, Jane’s Addiction, The Meters, Aloe Blacc and Trombone Shorty, The Main Squeeze continues to catch the ear of industry giants.

Now based in Chicago, The Main Squeeze is working with legendary producer, Randy Jackson, to put the finishing touches on their sophomore album. The band’s self-titled debut was released in 2012, and is available for purchase on iTunes and Amazon.

As their fan base continues to multiply, and their unique sound, contagious energy, and unrivaled talent continue to mesmerize audiences, The Main Squeeze is poised for a meteoric rise in the world of music. Make sure to climb aboard for the ride.
The Proof. - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
The Proof.
Established in 2015, Los Angeles-based band, The Proof., has since established itself as a dynamic musical force. Their unique sound brings a reverberation of yesterday’s past through a foundation rooted in The Blues. With storytelling lyrics and soulful vocals, the sounds take life in a genuine and contemporary form with instrumental influences creating a melting pot of Funk, R&B, Soul, Reggae and Gritty Rock.

The band formed after Drew Dolan (Lead Vocals/Keyboard) and Geramie Laufersky (Guitar/Vocals) broke away from a previous project to collaborate on a new sound. With a vast library of original music and a clear vision, they crossed paths with Ian Murray (Bass) and Lucas Crouch (Drums). The band promptly found itself on both the stage and in the studio recording their debut EP, Bang Bang.

Since releasing the five-track EP, The Proof. has seen nothing but blessings. Live performances in some of LA’s most legendary rooms such as Harvelle’s Santa Monica, Mrs. Fish (DTLA) and a Friday night residency at The Hotel Café have cast the band’s sound into the forefront of the budding rebirth of soul in the city.

In addition to hitting the gigging scene intensely, the unsigned project has made an impact both online and on terrestrial radio. The music, mastered by Grammy Award-winning engineer Steve Baughman, surpassed 100,000 spins on SoundCloud in less than six months. With the support of the tastemakers at KCRW, K-JAZZ and KCSN, The Proof. continues to gain momentum in the LA market, while features on both Jam In The Van and The WorldArts Stage have helped put the band on the digital video map.

Onstage, this brotherhood of vibration brings a swampy sound that is guaranteed to make you groove. You will be cast out into the cosmos on a musical journey that will take your heart and soul to a place where nostalgia meets present day. Recent concertgoers have compared The Proof. to The Meters, Dr. John, Bill Withers, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Keys and JJ Grey & Mofro, to name a few.

The Proof. believes that through musical creation comes liberation. Their music is to be shared and experienced. Drink up the sonic remedy that is The Proof.
