After forming in 2010 as a party band at Indiana University, The Main Squeeze was selling out clubs within a few months. Their live performances even caught the interest of legendary producer Randy Jackson, who produced their album "Mind Your Head."

Now based in Los Angeles, the five-piece band is made up of Corey Frye, vocals; Max Newman, guitar; Ben Silverstein, keyboards; Rob Walker, bass; and Reuben Gingrich, drums.

Their newest album, "Without a Sound," illustrates their increasing musical maturity and creativity.

The funk band stops at Revelry Room tonight as part of its Without a Sound Tour.

The Main Squeeze spent several years building its foundation after being championed by Jackson.

They played Red Rocks, shared stages with The Roots, Aloe Blacc, Jane's Addiction, Umphrey's McGee and Trombone Shorty. They performed at Bonnaroo, Electric Forest and High Sierra festivals.

Their music is a blend of soul and hip-hop, funk with rock. Billboard sums their sound with: "Funk runs deep in their DNA."

"We are devoted to making great music for people to get lost in, to feel real emotion and love, and also to dance and enjoy life," says Newman.

"And it's only just the beginning."
