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.

Born and raised in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., Kwame Darko embodies diversity in an ever-changing music industry. Fortunate enough to have grown up in an environment that embraces all social and economic walks of life, his passion for music and excellence creates a strong formula for success.
His love for music began at a young age but it wasn’t until high school that Kwame and a local following realized his passion was more than just a hobby. After being selected to appear on a Def Jam bound recording compilation several doors opened and Kwame set out to pursue his passion fully.
Kwame’s success as an athlete led him to the University of Maryland, where as a member of the school’s nationally-acclaimed soccer team, he managed to find a balance between academics, music, and a demanding athletic schedule.
Since moving to New York to further his career, Kwame has performed at renowned venues like The Fillmore, Rock and Roll Hotel, and Music Hall of Williamsburg to name a few in addition to a wide variety of popular clubs and lounges across the country. Having gone on tour and appeared with artists like Big Sean, Wale, Wiz Khalifa, and Sean Paul, Kwame’s resume is far from lacking. Beyond the stage, Kwame’s eye for talent, songwriting, producing, business savvy, and overall marketability proves his value as an asset at any level in the music industry.
MH The Verb
I am a whiskey drinking, boat shoe wearing, MC/DJ/Producer who currently resides on a Megabus between a pair of imitation BeatsbyDre Headphones. Still in a committed relationship with my first love, Hip Hop. However, I tend to have affairs with other genres. My iTunes playlist consist of everything from Oasis to Immortal Technique. But, I'd rather experience music live. Or, recreate it with my band. My rhymes are more often about student loans then "ridin spinnaz". I won't own a chain. But, I'd totally rock a grill. Baseball is my favorite sport. Olivia Munn is my celebrity crush. And, I can quote all of season 3 of "The Wire". I vote because its my responsibility. I walk between the lady and the street. I live my life with passion and love. Follow the golden rule. And, I believe in Good People, Good Vibes, and Good Art. #BalloonUP
