Upstate New York-based funk jam band Formula 5 has announced a 31-show summer tour throughout the Northeast and stretching into the Midwest. The extensive tour, which will keep the quartet on the road through September, features multiple festival dates as well as shows alongside acts like SprocketTeddy MidnightPink Talking Fish, and more. After a pair of shows last week, the band will keep things moving in NY’s Finger Lakes region with a trio of shows in Rochester, Canandaigua, and Johnson City.
