It was a flying groove rather than a race, with Formula 5 performing at the Waterhole for Winter Carnival in Saranac Lake. The music flowed, the jams extended, the people danced. This band is composed of four talented young musicians from the Albany Area; Joe Davis on Guitar, Mike McDonald on Keyboard, James Woods on Bass and Greg Marek on Drums. They have funk, improvisation jams and sound larger with a higher level of groove reminiscent of bands like Phish. Their songs are original with instrumental breaks and an underlying trance/dance rhythm. Nominated for ’s 2014 Bands on the Rise as well as Upstate Album of the year with“Edging on Catastrophe.” Formula 5 is a band that is accelerating fast, sure to be on the festival stages this summer and definitely not to be missed.
