Bio: The Formatters was formed by five close high school friends looking to make a musical impact. Bored in a common suburban town and unenthusiastic about today's hit music, we all decided to pick up an instrument and create something new.

    Our buddies, Fikus, were nice enough to add us to the bill over at Crossroads in Garwood, NJ. This place has a reputation for housing great live music and we are psyched to be playing there!

    after our show at The Annex got cancelled because they sold the place, we were inspired to find another gig before we hit up the semi-finals at Starland Ballroom in November. Our booking agent asked us to play the GRAND RE-OPENING of a great venue in Secaucus called The Blue Room. Oh yeah, and it's connected to a strip club. :P Come and support! There are going to be a lot of people at this one, let's make it a sick party. Here are the directions: http://maps.google.com/maps?hl=en&q=201+Secaucus+Rd

    this one is last minute. but kind of awesome too. We landed a cool radio interview over at St. Peter's College in Jersey City, NJ. the station is internet-only! which is kinda cool. Here is a link to listen (our songs are already in rotation): http://origin.eastbaymedia.com/%7Espc/asx/live/spc-live.asx we will be talking about our upcoming show at The Blue Room's grand re-opening, and they will be asking two of us some VERY pressing, probing and insanely personal questions. intenseeeeeeeeeeeee! anyway, take a listen from the internet on thurs afternoon to learn a bit more about who we are and why we do what we do. PEACE! Ant, Matt C, Chris B, Tatz & Joe
