PHISH MIAMI AFTER PARTY: THE MAIN SQUEEZE | Railroad Blues
THE MAIN SQUEEZE will be on our outdoor stage after the Phish show and BOBBY LEE RODGERS is inside the club all night!!!
The Main Squeeze is a raging funk experience born within the thriving live music scene of Bloomington, Indiana, and currently residing in Chicago, IL. Since coming together in late 2009 The Squeeze have managed to establish a unique sound and identity in a short period of time. Some of their most recent accomplishments include....
Winning an international battle of the bands in Macau, China against bands from all over the World.
Handpicked by Rolling Stones Magazine to open for The Roots and Janes Addiction at the official Superbowl XLVI tailgate party in Indianapolis.
Played for over 1,000 fans at Bonnaroo Music Festival in 2012.
The Squeeze just released their debut self titled album in June 2012. Much like each member's varied backgrounds and influences, the album itself contains an eclectic blend of inspiration which seamlessly navigates through funk, rock, electro, and jazz, while still rooting itself in something that's uniquely their own. Whereas 'First Drops' found the band searching for their voice in the studio, their newest offering picks up miles beyond where they left off. Just one listen to tracks like the epic "I'll Take Another" (clocking in at nearly ten minutes), the soulful trifecta of "Where Do We Go", or the impeccable horn arrangements on "Mama Told Me" and it's clear that the band possesses a musical maturity well beyond their years.
Their unique ability to tackle and funkify such a wide variety of music makes each show a unique experience in its own right. 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 the East Coast earning them slots at music festivals such as Bonnaroo, Summer Camp, Equifunk, Electric Forrest, Gathering of the Vibes and Aura.
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.
BOBBY LEE RODGERS
Whether rocking out to his own compositions in the jazz or jamband scenes or presenting his unique interpretations of musical greats such as Miles Davis, John Coltrane or Wes Montgomery, guitarist Bobby Lee Rodgers is staking out a legendary path with fans and critics alike. His unique sound and stylings are garnering a growing popularity wherever he performs.
Growing up with the guitar as a young boy he went on to study Classical and Jazz guitar at the University of Georgia. After college he moved to Boston and became one of the youngest instructors of Jazz Studies with the prestigious Berklee College of Music at just 23. While an accomplished teacher, it was performing that fueled Bobby's energy and soon, along with Col. Bruce Hampton, he became one of the founding members of the Legendary Southern Band The Codetalkers.
Bobby began his solo career in 2009 at the Wanee Music Festival in Florida where he performed in front of 10,000 people. He made such an impact on the audience that he was asked to come back in 2010 and again this year for the 2011 festival.
But Bobby did not forget his jazz roots. The Bobby Lee Rodgers Jazz Trio takes one back to the Golden Decade when Jazz was the soul of the city. Along with playing his Jazz originals, during performances he captures the sounds of the great artists of our time like Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk and Wes Montgomery. He visits their compositions by putting his original vocabulary and sound into the harmonic structure of the songs.
Bobby brings a unique sound to his performance because he plays through a combination of Leslie cabinet and vintage guitar amp which gives him the beautiful sound of an organ and guitar together. A stellar songwriter, vocalist and guitarist he fuses rock, funk, jazz and blues into a magical musical tapestry. He has performed with such great artists as Vassar Clements, Warren Haynes, Widespread Panic, George Porter Jr. and the list goes on and on. His new CD, BLR was just release to rave reviews.
