Few bands encapsulate the term ‘jam band’ as completely as Formula 5. While many bands seem to be heading in an a distinctly progressive electronic direction, Formula 5 employs a classic, honest approach to their music that results in an extremely familiar and organic experience that is deeply rooted in the style of some of their jam band idols. In their short tenure as a band, they have shared the stage with regional/national acts such as Dopapod, Consider the Source, Twiddle and The Heavy Pets, and have also played at regional festivals such as Catskill Chill, The Big Up and Strange Creek. With their truly profound and funk-filled vibes and thought-provoking lyrics, Formula 5 will speak to your soul and get your body moving all night long. Fellow New York natives SOLARiS, formed back in 2010 and in the five years since their inception they have amassed quite the loyal following thanks to their enigmatic flair, explosive live improvisation and electronic experimentation. SOLARiS has produced bevy of original compositions that range from electronica to breakbeats, jazz fusion to funk, which showcase their immense appreciation for all musical disciplines as well as illuminated their undoubted musicianship.
If you are a lover of dazzling live perfrormances and music that is rife with exemplarary instrumentation you definitely need to be in the building when these two bands come together on May 16th at the Capitol Theater. Grab your tickets here.
