The Indigos is an Indigroove rock band from Muncie, IN. They originated from a recording project lead by Producer Patrick Weaver who asked lead singer and songwriter Matt Mellen to record one of his songs titled “In Eternity”. During the session Patrick introduced Matt to drummer and songwriter Matas Olsauskas. After a 3-hour studio session they decided to start a band with accompanying guitarist Brandon Brookshear.
Over the next year the band recruited, rehearsed, and performed under the name I, The Indigo. After going through almost a dozen musicians they solidified their ensemble of 8 members, including keyboard, multiple vocalist, and a full horn section. The Indigos style combines the music of rock, indie, modern pop, jazz, groove, alternative, and blues music. Their sound continues to evolve as the band and members themselves evolve.
The name The Indigos comes from the idea of being Indigo, or those from a generation who are more in touch with their higher selves. They are able to identify their dreams and desires, pursue, and then help others do the same. We always strive to spread the joy of music and love wherever we go, and include all of those who want to be apart of this amazing experience.
We like to say our genre is “Indigroove” because of its groovy roots meshed with our collective rock ‘n’ roll influences. Already the size of a baseball team and working on becoming a football team, we have depth of diversity with a central focus on creating our unique brand of music so that our fans can get in, get in the groove.
