The McLovins, comprised of the Connecticut music prodigies Jake Huffman, Jeff Howard, and Jason Ott. The McLovins are a progressive jam, improvisational rock band that has produced two original albums, improvises extensively on their own songs, and also covers a wide array of newer and older tunes including those from bands like Phish, Rush, Grateful Dead, The Doors, Sugarhill Gang, The Meters, and more. "In a genre of music that normally requires a good three years of 100+ shows and slow burn word of mouth publicity, the McLovins appear to be the first band in the jam scene to actually blow up." (Hidden Track)


Formula 5: A band that truly represents Upstate New York! With members ranging from Albany to Troy to Lake George, this up-and-coming 5-piece brings together its diverse influences to create a unique yet familiar sound that will make you want to move your feet. 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 there very short 1-year tenure, they have shared the stage with regional/national acts such as The Brew, Dopapod, Twiddle, Capital Zen, Goosepimp Orchestra, and MK Groove Orchestra while playing most of the regional stops in Upstate NY for original music. With their roots in jam, jazz, funk, electronica, blues, bluegrass and many others, this group is sure to satisfy whatever your taste in music while making it truly their own.
