The Main Squeeze have been one of my favorite up-and-coming bands in the jam scene over the past few years. The music is funky and the lyrics are soulful. I uncontrollably dance and sing from the second I push play. When they play live on stage, there is so much positive energy and instinctive smiles cycling from the band to the fans and back to the band. You can’t help but be moved at some point during the show. I guarantee it.
The band is currently on their “Fall Tour 2017” which makes a stop in Downtown Orlando at The Social on Thursday, October 5 with special guest, good friends, and local funk rockers, The Groove Orient. Enter below to WIN 2 TICKETS to the show!
In case you might have been doubting my bursting passion for the Squeeze, just look below. Check out my live full-set concert videos from the past two times they have played Orlando, thanks to The Sober Goat.

Last year, The Main Squeze relocated from hometown Chicago to crazy Los Angeles, initially just to record their latest studio album, Without A Sound, but L.A. gave them a dose of creative inspiration andthey decided to make a permanent change.
Earlier this year while touring, they recorded their performances at Brooklyn, NY’s Brooklyn Bowl, Boulder, CO’s Fox Theatre and New Orleans, LA’s Blue Nile, with the ultimate intention of releasing a live record. Just recently, they released their live album, Squeeze LIVE Vol. 1 (exclusively available via Nugs.net). All proceeds will be donated to the Salvation Army Hurricane Relief Fund to help those hurt by the devastating damage of the recent hurricanes. The band is grateful to help those affected through music. The live release comes just before the band’s second part of the Without a Sound tour in late September.
The Groove Orient will open up the show and get you in prime rage mode to funk things up. They are finally back home in Orlando after an extensive summer tour that wraps up this weekend at The Great Outdoors Jam festival at Maddox Ranch in Lakeland, FL.
Check out this live full-set video of The Groove Orient when they opened for The Main Squeeze at The Social, thanks to The Sober Goat.
