CEG Presents Formula 5 with Goose



Formula 5
A band that truly represents Upstate New York! With members ranging from Albany to Troy to Lake George, this up-and-coming 4-piece brings together its diverse influences to create a unique yet familiar sound that will make you want to move your feet. With an organic, funk filled sound rooted in the style of some of their jam band idols, Formula 5 brings an honest, classic approach to a genre that is becoming increasingly filled with purely electronic artists. 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 their short tenure as a band, they have shared the stage with regional/national acts such as The Heavy Pets, Dopapod, Consider the Source, Twiddle, The Brew, The McLovins, Tauk, Timbre Coup, Lucid, Turbine, Goosepimp Orchestra, and many others while playing most of the regional stops in Upstate NY and the northeast for original music. They have turned heads at regional festivals such as The Big Up 2013, Strange Creek, Backwoods Pondfest, Green Mountain Getdown (NH), Autamation Indoor Music Festival (Lake George) and many others. With their roots in jam, jazz, funk, blues, bluegrass, electronica and many others, this group is sure to satisfy whatever your taste in music while making it truly their own. 

Goose
Goose is a Funk-Folk band based out of Norwalk, Connecticut. Rick Mitarotonda is the guitarist-singer-songwriter whose folky, hummable melodies are supported by Peter Anspach on guitar/keys, and a deep-pocket rhythm section of Trevor Weekz on Bass, Ben Atkind on drums, and Aaron Hagele on percussion. The band’s music is both memorable and danceable; an organic and easy-to-love mix of funk and contemporary folk, with touches of reggae, jazz, blues, and rock. Tracked in a snowbound lakeside New Hampshire cabin, with mixing and mastering at the Factory Underground in Norwalk, CT, Goose’s debut album ‘Moon Cabin’ was released in early 2016. Moon Cabin traverses diverse musical terrain with 3 part harmony vocals and hooks so big you can hang your hat on them; funky improvised solos and adventurous musical interludes. With a second album on the way and tour dates continuing to ramp up, the Goose is getting loose.
