BIOGRAPHY
The Main Squeeze, with deep musical roots sprouted in the Midwest, have scored their lives at each twist and curve. While starting out as a party band at Indiana University, their forthcoming April 28th release “Without a Sound” illustrates their increasing musical maturity and creativity inspired by their new home in Los Angeles.

If maturity comes with experience, “Without a Sound” reflects this. The Main Squeeze has spent several years building their foundation since being championed by producer Randy Jackson: they have played Red Rocks; shared the stage with The Roots, Aloe Blacc, Jane’s Addiction, Umphrey’s McGee, and Trombone Shorty; and performed at music festivals like Bonnaroo, Electric Forest, Summer Camp, and High Sierra.

The Main Squeeze is a blend of soul and hip-hop, funk with rock. They know their sound is “soulful, powerful, and unique” (Newman). Rolling Stone agrees in their recent critique of a live show: “Lead singer Corey Frye’s powerfully soulful vocals forms the foundation of an energetic set.”

These underpinnings are important yet The Main Squeeze’s true focus will always be to “strive to reach people” through their beat loving heart in their music. “We are devoted to making great music for people to get lost in and to feel real emotion and love, and also to dance and enjoy life. And it’s only just the beginning” (Newman). Billboard believes they have touched on this goal: “Funk runs deep in their DNA. Dare you not to two-step.”

The beats on “Without A Sound” are plentiful and it is balanced with emotion, a mix of vocals, and instrumentation of the band. Their vibe is simultaneously timeless and futuristic as they are inspired by the greats, yet have found a way to infuse their own genius into the mix.

The Main Squeeze appeals to your head, heart and body.
Pj Moon and the Swappers
Pj Moon and the Swappers
PJ Moon and the Swappers is a band formed in Durango, CO in 2017. The Group was formed by bandleader PJ Moon, searching for a troupe of musicians who could help him realize his dream of making new modern rock and soul music with relevant lyrics on top of innovative rhythm and melodies. With a diverse team of jazz, blues, indie and funk players originally “swapping” out every few shows, the group developed into a core four peice of committed musicians who’ve taken their expression of soul from the west to the east, playing shows in Jackson Hole at the historic Silver Dollar Saloon, and in New York City at famed Times Square club, B.B. Kings.

In the summer of 2018 recording started on the group’s first album, “Memoirs of Living in a Car” at Scooter’s Place in Durango, CO. The record is a mix of genre bending rock and soul screaming rhythm & blues. All of the songs are original works most of which started as compostitions written by PJ Moon. With the input of the rest of the group, they eventually evolved into the complex yet catchy collection of songs that are now played at their live shows and streamed and downloaded across the world.
