I first met Tonal Caravan a few years ago when they lived just down the street from me and were known as One Side Later. While their name and lineup has changed over the years their philosophy has not and their talent has only grown. To them, music is vibration, music is expression, music is... life. I had a chance to chat with the guys for a bit after their show at Folly Moon on January 25th.

Muncie-based Losing September brought their hard-driving, melodic metal sound to Folly Moon in Downtown Muncie on Saturday, January 19th. I had the opportunity to chat with the members of the band before the show. Below is video from that conversation and a small taste of what you might experience at a Losing September show.
On Friday, January 11th, The Main Squeeze took to the stage at Folly Moon in Downtown Muncie. This Chicago based five-piece band blends the best of several genres of music including jam, funk, soul and rock.
Originally from Bloomington, IN, The Main Squeeze has been steadily gaining a fan base since forming in 2009. The rhythm section consists of bassist Jeremiah Hunt and Reuben Gingrich on drums. Their funky beats are complimented by guitarist Max Newman and keyboard player Ben "Smiley" Silverstein. Rounding out the sound is Corey Frye. Frye's vocals are reminiscent of the Golden Age of Motown with just the right touch of blues and soul.
Throughout the evening fans danced, shouted, bounced, and grooved to the constant waves of great vibes and harmonious energy flowing from The Main Squeeze. There was a pleasant, outdoor music fest feel at Folly Moon, despite the fact that the show took place indoors in the middle of a cold Indiana winter.
The rhythm changes were tight and on the money and the riffing by Newman and Silverstein were top notch. For a band that's only been together for a few years one can only imagine the types of sounds they'll be producing in the years to come. If you've been looking to be impressed, The Main Squeeze will surely exceed any expectations you might have had.
