Formula 5’s Rock The Dock Music Festival
This years Rock the Dock Music Festival will take place on Friday, July 13 2018 at The Lake George Steamboat Company in Lake George, NY. The music festival started in 2017 with the celebration of The Steamboat Company’s 200th anniversary. In the wake of its success, promoters made the decision to turn Rock the Dock a yearly festival!
Rock the Dock Music Festival in Lake George, NY is for all ages and will feature live music on the pier, surrounded by the beautiful Adirondack mountains. Enjoy the sounds of several well-known jam bands, (including Lake George’s own Formula 5), from the dock or aboard the steamboats that surround the stage. This truly is one of the most unique experiences you will get from a live concert.
Rock the Dock will not only feature live music but will also include many local craft, food and beer vendors, as well as a merchandise tent featuring posters, t-shirts and other band memorabilia.
25% of all ticket proceeds go to The FUND for Lake George, so come enjoy good bands, delicious food, and tasty brews all while helping to keep the lake clean and pristine!
Formula 5 is a four-piece improvisational rock band out of Albany, NY, featuring Joe Davis (guitar/vocals), Greg Marek (drums), James Woods (bass), and Matt Richards (keys/vocals). With a diverse catalogue of distinctive originals and familiar covers, Formula 5 will keep your feet moving and your mind engaged. Blending high-energy Rock n Roll with tasteful grooves, there is an emphasis on collective, goal-driven improvisation. Every performance is unique, leaving the listener excited for where the band may venture with their broad range of styles at their next show.
Soule Monde is an avant funk erupting from the syncopated minds of power drummer Russ Lawton + B3 wizard Ray Paczkowski. an ideal union of swagger and raw talent, the duo is fervently cemented into an indestructible pocket, where bold improvisational leaps by either player are met by a near-telepathic response from the other.
Boston-born, New England based quartet Strange Machines have been steadily making a name for themselves in the East Coast jam scene. What started as a band focused on rock and reggae has slowly melded into a true melting pot of musical fusion, with sounds catering to funk, livetronica, heavy rock and a multitude of other genres, all while stringing them together seamlessly to create a fluid and captivating live performance.
Let’s Be Leonard is a rock ‘n roll jazz explosion out of Upstate NY that bursts at the seams of tight, lyrical pop ballads with daredevilish, looney jam band quality that’ll hook you like a lil fish. A full fledged caravan, all five band members quit their jobs, invested what money they had into equipment and a tour bus, and have been living together in a music centric collective lifestyle since early 2015.
