This year’s Rock the Dock Music Festival will take place on Friday, July 12th, 2019 at The Lake George Steamboat Company in Lake George, NY. Rock the Dock started in 2017 with the celebration of The Lake George Steamboat Company’s 200th anniversary. In the wake of its success, promoters made the decision to turn Rock the Dock a yearly festival, hosted by Formula 5 for the second year in a row.
Formula 5 kicks off Winter Tour at Killington Ski Resort in Vermont, makes three stops in Colorado including their debut at Cervantes Other Side on Valentines Day, and wraps the tour up at Snowshoe Mountain in West Virginia. Additionally, Formula 5 welcomes West End Blend to Putnam Place for a night that will combine the best of Funk and Jam the Northeast has to offer.
Formula 5 have announced additional dates on their 2018 Fall Tour. The tour stretches from the Northeast to the Rocky Mountains with a swing through the South, performing their ‘Widespread’s Dead’ set at select shows. The band will close out festival season with appearances at The Heap Music Festival (October 12) and Mustang Rock and Roast Music Festival (October 14).
Formula 5 embarks on their 2018 Summer Tour with stops at familiar haunts across the Northeast and North Carolina and featuring festival performances at Tumbledown and Adirondack Music Festivals, as well as their own Rock the Dock Music Festival on July 13. August will bring the band back to North Carolina for a pair of shows, as well as a Curveball pre-party in Watkins Glen on August 15, one night before gates open at Phish’s eleventh festival.
Formula 5 Summer Tour Dates
Albany jam band Formula 5 will lend their name this summer to a refreshing Ben & Jerry’s shake and a Lake George music festival, a bold step forward for the quartet who have toured extensively in the Northeast, with recent tours of Colorado, the Midwest and Southeast pointing to rapid growth on the horizon.
Spring is just around the corner and Formula 5 has announced a 21 show Spring Tour kicking off at Nectar’s on April 6 and featuring stops throughout the Northeast, Midwest, and Southeast, as well as music festival performances at Dome Fest, Sterling Stage FolkFest and Disc Jam Music Festival. Along the way, Formula 5 will perform alongside Perpetual Groove, McLovins, The Magic Beans, The Southern Belles, Goose and Space Carnival.
Hot off the heels of Fall Tour, Formula 5 has announced Winter Tour 2018. The tour kicks off at Nietzsche’s in Buffalo, NY on December 1 followed by the band’s debut at the new FLX Live in Geneva, NY. Their final 2017 show will take place on December 30th for a Phish after party at DROM with Fondude. A limited number of VIP packages are available for this special end of year show.
The jam-oriented rockers swing through the Midwest and New York throughout July and August, performing three shows on historic waterways of their native New York State, with a hometown celebration on August 25th as they headline the 200 year anniversary of steamboats on Lake George.
