Formula 5 will release their first live album, Live Five, Vol. 1¸ on April 18 at The Hollow Bar + Kitchen. Recorded during December 2014 and February 2015, the resulting 8 live tracks provide a sample of Formula 5’s live performances where improvisation and flowing grooves have room to stretch beyond their studio origins. Joining Formula 5 will be The Chronicles horns, featuring Bryan Brundige and Jeff Nania, with Strange Machines opening what will be a surprise filled night of music.
Formula 5 recently wrapped up their Winter Tour with an inaugural performance at Brooklyn Bowl, highlighted by a performance of Led Zeppelin’s “Trampled Underfoot”, featuring Natalie Cressman (Trey Anastasio Band) and Elise Testone (American Idol Season 11).
Live Five, Vol. 1 will be available for purchase on formula5music.bandcamp.com as a download starting April 13 with exclusive bonus tracks available only through digital download. Physical albums will be available for purchase beginning April 18 at Formula 5’s show at The Hollow Bar + Kitchen, as well as online.
All week long, JEMP Radio will feature “Formula 5 at 5pm”, with one track played off the album each day, with the full album streamed on Friday, April 17 at 5pm.
