Lucid was born and raised in the diverse musical culture unique to the City of Plattsburgh, New York, nestled high in the Adirondack Mountains. Over a decade of progress and development has established Lucid as one of the most dynamic, hard working, finely tuned bands in the North Country.
Lucid’s enlivening, powerful performances energize concert goers from open to encore. Their songs remain structurally tight and carefully woven, distinguishing them from their jam band counterparts. Still, they’re unpredictable in nature, with a knack for improv and a talent for delivery. Find yourself in the celebration that is a Lucid show, and you’ll quickly understand the infectious, unique experience that music fans are raving about. Come. Join the party.
Nestled in the southernmost corner of the NYS Adirondack Park, Formula 5 brews up organic, funk filled grooves that have caused quite a stir across New York state and throughout much of the northeast. Rooted in the styling of their jam band idols, Formula 5 brings an honest, classic approach to the genre. 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”. Whether they are throwing down opening sets for heavy hitters like Twiddle, Dopapod, Spiritual Rez, and The Heavy Pets, or gracing the stages of Nnortheast festivals such as Catskill Chill, Disc Jam, The Big Up, Strange Creek, and Buffalove, Formula 5 has continued to grow rapidly – winning over new fans regularly as they play the northeast. 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.
Starting a touring-ready band from scratch and instantly hitting the road is a tough thing to do, but it seems to be working for Mister F. Formed in 2013 from members of Timbre Coup and Capital Zen, these young guys from Upstate NY have already brought their fresh blend of fusion and funk to 19 states across the country. By year’s end, Mister F will have played over 200 shows as a band, with 141 of those gigs falling in 2014 alone. A busy festival season, filled with events like Hudson Project, Catskill Chill, and Mantrabash (to name a few) paired with opening slots for Snarky Puppy, Toubab Krewe, Conspirator, Dopapod, and Consider the Source, have really contributed to the buzz surrounding this group. Whether you love good music, or just really like Arrested Development, you should give Mister F’s debut album “The F Stands Four” a spin. It was recorded only 10 months after the band’s first show, and we think you’ll agree…it’s a sign of great things to come.
