About

Awake the Wilde

Awake the Wilde is a band apart. Formed inside a concrete basement in Suburban Indiana by Cheese, Wild Billy, Sammy G and Blu. The original four would get together as much as they could to allow creations catch fire. Soon, between these stone walls, birthed a band of four strangers united by music; each of their own style and substance. Week after week the band would flesh out songs written by Blu as each member added his own panache until the air was visceral and each piece of sound found it’s place in the aural portrait. Finally, after four or so years, three without a drummer,found a light. Since that gracious night, the band began to grow after each practice as they learned each other’s habits and instincts. Now, they have solidified into a catalyst of rock-hop-funk-pop blues, so that even in a generation electronica, Rock ‘n Roll will never die.

About

Huckleberry Funk

Huckleberry Funk is a high-powered funk, rock, and soul band based in Bloomington, Indiana. Their live shows have earned them a reputation as one of the most exciting and entertaining live performances in the Midwest.

Hailing from Long Island, Pittsburgh, Boston, Bloomington and Junction City, Kansas, the members of Huckleberry Funk were brought together by their shared love for all things funk. After meeting at a basement jam, founding members Lex Lindsey (drums), Meg Shedlak (vocals) and Mike Gronsky (guitar) started writing music together, where the band’s beginning was sparked. Later joined by Matt McConahay (bass) and Alex Dura (saxophone, keys), Huckleberry Funk took full form in the Spring of 2016.

At the heart of a Huckleberry Funk show, the audience can expect to hear power-house female vocals, face-melting guitar solos, a crisp, East coast-style horn section, and rock-solid grooves. Drawing inspiration from artists like Snarky Puppy, Lettuce, Tower of Power, The Allman Brothers, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson, their unique, feel-good sound is equally funky, soulful, and hard-hitting.

Although fresh on the scene, Huckleberry Funk has headlined shows at top local venues and drawn attention from premier acts like, The Vallures, NOLA favorites Water Seed, and hometown heroes The Main Squeeze. Continuously writing new music and honing their live performance, Huckleberry Funk is quickly building a diverse and loyal fan base as they transition from local, high-energy bar band into a premiere national act.
