The Main Squeeze

The Main Squeeze is a raging funk experience born within the thriving live music scene of Bloomington, Indiana. Since coming together in late 2009 The Squeeze have managed to establish a unique sound and identity in a short period of time. Their first studio offering entitled “First Drops,” is a seven song EP released in early 2011 which showcases the broad range of styles and influences that each member brings to the table; from rock to jazz, funk to R&B, and hip-hop to electro.
While their first foray into the studio proved successful, the growth that has transpired within the group since it’s release has been profound. Their live performances, which fuse soulful vocals, intricate jams, tight grooves, and ripping solos have helped them develop a dedicated and rapidly growing fan base in the Midwest and along the East Coast. Their unique ability to tackle and funkify such a wide variety of music makes each show a unique experience in its own
The Squeeze still reside in Bloomington and have been hard at work compiling new music for their upcoming LP which will be released in May. With a steady stream of unreleased material being tweaked and perfected at each show, its safe to say that they’ve have found their groove and show no signs of slowing down. If you’ve ever wondered whether the juice is worth the squeeze, you should look no further – The Main Squeeze is sure to be hitting a city near you sometime soon, leaving their crowd funkified and freshly squozen.

We got together in 2010 to make music. We recorded an album that summer entitled, "You, Me, & the Monster." We then proceeded to play shows. Some of the bands we've played with include, but are not limited to, Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr, Margot & the Nuclear So & So's, Company of Thieves, Bear Hands, and Walk the Moon. Eventually the album we made was ready to release, so our friend Dodge helped us get the digital files onto physical discs and we held a release party in the summer of 2011. We are working on our second album, which we believe will be released before the whole end of the world thing in December.

Rodeo Ruby Love

Rodeo Ruby Love is a pop band from Indiana made up of seven friends who strive to create fun and catchy songs that will get stuck in your head and make you sing out loud. Known for their energetic live performances, the band gets its sound by mixing their hardcore and punk roots with eclectic 60's and contemporary indie pop. Recently, RRL just finished up a tour with Streeghtlight Manifesto and Reel Big Fish!

Blue Moon Revue

Blue Moon Revue is a true rock n roll band in every sense of the word. Mixing the diverse musical backgrounds of the bands members into a style all their own, Blue Moon Revue formed back in 1999 when a couple of Indiana University students wanted to get together and play the kind of music they loved.

While most college bands call it quits after graduation, these guys remained friends and continued making music together. The strength and longevity of that relationship has been essential to the band's songwriting and development over the years.

Now calling the great city of Indianapolis their home, Blue Moon Revue has toured nationally and shared the stage with many other notable acts such as Santana, Galactic, OK GO and The Meat Puppets to name a few.

The Bonesetters

Muncie-bred and Indianapolis-raised, we make music in old duplexes and share them with all kinds of alternative environs. We breathe in quiet sounds, and exhale louder sounds. A good mixture of western swing, surf rock, blues and images meant for dreams. We like you!

Tax Brandywine

Tax Brandywine: Rock? Folk? Reggae? Pop? Ska? Punk? Dub? Yes.

The band hit a major milestone in their performing careers by supporting English 2 Tone Ska band, Bad Manners, in May of 2011. Following the debut success of the full-length album Atrocities on the Highway, Tax released the Welcome Home EP on New Year's Eve 2011 featuring the single "Hurricane Kaley" recorded at the legendary Studio B in Nashville, TN.
