A band that truly represents Upstate New York! With members ranging from Albany to Troy to Lake George, this up-and-coming 4-piece brings together its diverse influences to create a unique yet familiar sound that will make you want to move your feet. With an organic, funk filled sound rooted in the style of some of their jam band idols, Formula 5 brings an honest, classic approach to a genre that is becoming increasingly filled with purely electronic artists. With thought-provoking and soulful lyrics, soaring melodies, and an emphasis on tight instrumentation and improvisation, this band brings a familiar freshness to the term “jam band”. In their short tenure as a band, they have shared the stage with regional/national acts such as The Heavy Pets, Dopapod, Consider the Source, Twiddle, The Brew, The McLovins, Tauk, Timbre Coup, Lucid, Turbine, Goosepimp Orchestra, and many others while playing most of the regional stops in Upstate NY and the northeast for original music. They have turned heads at regional festivals such as The Big Up 2013, Strange Creek, Backwoods Pondfest, Green Mountain Getdown (NH), Autamation Indoor Music Festival (Lake George) and many others.
