    Formula 5

    Jam Bands

    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. 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.

    Goose

    Jam Bands

    Goose is a Funk-Folk band based out of Norwalk, Connecticut. Rick Mitarotonda
    is the guitarist-singer-songwriter whose folky, hummable melodies are supported
    by Peter Anspach on guitar/keys, and a deep-pocket rhythm section of Trevor
    Weekz on Bass, Ben Atkind on drums, and Aaron Hagele on percussion. The
    band’s music is both memorable and danceable; an organic and easy-to-love mix
    of funk and contemporary folk, with touches of reggae, jazz, blues, and rock.
    Tracked in a snowbound lakeside New Hampshire cabin, with mixing and
    mastering at the Factory Underground in Norwalk, CT, Goose’s debut album
    ‘Moon Cabin’ was released in early 2016. Moon Cabin traverses diverse musical
    terrain with 3 part harmony vocals and hooks so big you can hang your hat on
    them; funky improvised solos and adventurous musical interludes. With a second
    album on the way and tour dates continuing to ramp up, the Goose is getting
    loose.

  • Animal Reporters

    Animal Reporters

    Pop

    One late night in 2013 in the Lower East Side, an eclectic group of New York City musicians created the garage blues band, Animal Reporters. The band mixes elements of classic and modern rock into a vintage rock n’ roll dance party, embodying New York City’s raw and powerful energy in their live shows and unique sound. Within a year of forming the band, Animal Reporters have inspirited some of downtown’s best venues, including Webster Hall, Mercury Lounge, Bowery Electric, and Pianos. With hits like “Mailman,” and “Little Mama,” Animal Reporters offer the soul of a drifting cowboy with the funk of a 70’s Warhol happening. Dave Gelb fronts the band with an incomparable indie charm along with Johnny Marx dazzling on the keys, smiling the entire time. The Van Deusen brothers, Colin on bass and Chris on guitar, complete the doo-wop swag of the group, but often the eyes are drawn to the back line where drummer Eric Sands adds flare-laden fills to the driving beat. Animal Reporters are currently playing around New York in support of their new EP, "Gorilla Washington".

  • Bee The Band

    Bee The Band

    Psychedelic

    Bee is an electric three piece band based out of the New York City area. Equally rooted in song and extended improvisation, their sonic shape is sculpted by elements of americana, funk, psychedelic rock, and electronica.
