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.
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.
Over a few short years of touring, Jelly Bread has risen from Reno/Lake Tahoe area favorites into a powerhouse quintet delivering their high-energy, chameleonic playlist throughout the United States. Jelly Bread’s distinct style is identified by a blend of desert roots-rock meeting the urban tones of soul, dashed with a splash of funkiness. Exceptional songwriting and storytelling interlaced with four part harmonies, intricate “in-the-pocket” drum and bass grooves, swampy lap steel guitar, dirt under the fingernails guitar licks, tasty talkbox, “take-’em-to-church” organ, come together into a sound that is downright appetizing.
Here, There, & Everywhere, Jelly Bread’s new album was released in early October 2015. The album was mixed by renowned engineer/producer Justin Phelps (Cake, Galactic, Fruition, The Mars Volta, The Neville Brothers, and Dead Kennedys among many others). Jelly Bread has performed shows all throughout the U.S. and landed direct support for the likes of Robert Cray, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, Rusted Root, JJ Grey, Dragon Smoke (members of Galactic), The Motet, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Pimps of Joytime, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, Orgone, Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Carolyn Wonderland, and The California Honeydrops. The band has also appeared at premiere festivals including the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival, Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Joshua TreeMusic Festival, Strawberry Music Festival, and Mammoth Festival of Beers and Bluesapalooza.
Jelly Bread is singer/drummer Cliff Porter, singer/guitarist Dave Berry, singer/bassist Jeremy Hunt, singer/lead guitarist Sean Lehe, and singer Eric Matlock on keyboards/talk box.
