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.
Turbine: The overarching sonic identity of this New York City-based quartet was forged over the last five years, starting when it was a tenacious duo comprised of guitarist / singer and primary songwriter Jeremy Hilliard and harmonicist / rhythm guitarist / singer-songwriter Ryan Rightmire. As a duo, Turbine started to experiment in odd time signatures and unorthodox compositional structures as they crafted songs that were both accessible and upbeat, despite their remarkable complexity and musical sophistication. After a few years of this, they realized they needed a rhythm section, brought on bassist Justin Kimmel and drummer Octavio Salman, and debuted the new band on a national tour at festivals such as Bonnaroo, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, 10,000 Lakes Festival, Wakarusa and Gathering Of The Vibes. They then returned to the northeast to resume the arduous process of building their regional fan base as a full band.
