Formula 5 is excited to announce an extensive Winter Tour to kick off 2017, which will see the release of the band’s third studio effort All Points North in April. Blanketing the Northeast throughout February, the band will return to the Midwest and Colorado in March, with debut performances in Kansas City and Chicago, wrapping up their tour back East at Rock n Roll Resort and a headlining show at Nectar’s in Burlington, VT on April 1. Fellow Upstate New Yorkers Mister F will join the band for 8 shows throughout New York and New England. Poised for a breakout year, Formula 5 has their eyes set towards a building off the success of 2016 which found the band performing with the likes of Twiddle, TAUK, Assembly of Dust, Kung Fu, Particle and Ghost Note.

Formula 5 also releases today a recording of their November 18th performance at Buffalo Iron Works on their Soundcloud, highlighted by a 24 minute performance of the jam vehicle “Sad Bed.” Additional soundboard releases of full shows can be found on the band’s site

Formula 5 is a four-piece improvisational rock band out of Albany, NY, featuring Joe Davis (guitar/vocals), Greg Marek (drums), James Woods (bass), and Matt Richards (keys/vocals). With a diverse catalogue of distinctive originals and familiar covers, Formula 5 will keep your feet moving and your mind engaged. With influences that include Steely Dan, Jeff Beck, Aquarium Rescue Unit, D’Angelo, Ween and Phish, Formula 5 blends high-energy Rock n Roll with tasteful grooves and an emphasis on collective, goal-driven improvisation. Every performance is unique, leaving the listener excited for where the band may venture with their broad range of styles at their next show.
