The Main Squeeze

July 07, 2016 at 7pm


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 Chicago-based band has been winning fans over with a unique musical blend—think Stevie Wonder meets Red Hot Chili Peppers. 

Soulful vocals, intricate jams, tight grooves, and powerful solos have led to sharing the stage with The Roots, Jane’s Addiction, The Meters, Aloe Blacc, and Trombone Shorty. In addition, the band placed first at the International Jazz and Blues Competition in Macau, China, and put their stamp on the Rolling Stone Super Bowl XLVI Pre-Party. Festival credits include Bonnaroo, High Sierra, Electric Forest, North Coast, Phases of the Moon, Summer Camp, and Gathering of The Vibes, among many others. 

Ben “Smiley” Silverstein (keys) and Max Newman (guitar), the two founding members, began writing music together after meeting at sleepaway camp in upstate New York. The two went on to study in Bloomington, Indiana, where they formed The Main Squeeze during the summer of 2010. Now based in Chicago, the band is completed by front man Corey Frye, drummer Reuben Gingrich, and bassist Rob Walker.
