Formula 5: Nestled between the Capital District and Adirondack State Park, Formula 5 brews up organic, funk filled grooves that have caused quite a stir across New York state and throughout much of the northeast. Rooted in the styling of their jam band idols, Formula 5 brings an honest, classic approach to the genre. 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”. Whether they are throwing down opening sets for heavy hitters like Twiddle, Dopapod, Spiritual Rez, and The Heavy Pets, or gracing the stages of Northeast festivals such as Catskill Chill, Disc Jam, The Big Up, Strange Creek, and Buffalove, Formula 5 has continued to grow rapidly, winning over new fans all across the Northeast. With their roots in jam, jazz, funk, blues, bluegrass, electronica and many others, this group is sure to satisfy whatever your taste in music while making it truly their own.
Formed in 2013 from members of Northeast regional acts Timbre Coup and Capital Zen, Mister F are an eclectic, high-energy 4-piece band that takes a no-holds-barred approach to blending genres while keeping your feet moving. Describing their sound as “neat and clean, hard and dangerous”, Mister F‘s calculated yet danceable fusion-fueled sound provides something for both musicians and listeners alike. Having performed at festivals such as The Hudson Project, Catskill Chill, Disc Jam, The Werk Out, Luna Light and Resonance, as well as with their previous bands at Mountain Jam, moe.down, Summer Camp, Camp Bisco, and snoe.down, the members of Mister F are no strangers to the music community. Members of Mister F have been invited to perform onstage with Umphrey’s McGee, Twiddle, Dopapod, Particle, Robert Randolph and the Family Band, The Werks, Consider the Source, and many more. They brought their show to the road soon after their 2013 debut, reaching cities as far as Telluride, CO and Atlanta, GA within just a few short years.
