"Bryant Liggett, General Manager"

“It’s one thing to be in a band and play other people’s music, but it’s way cooler to be in a band that features a front-man who is also a non-stop songwriter. Dave Mensch and Formula 151 are constant professionals, and their confidence and presence really shows whether they’re on-stage or playing live on the radio." - KDUR Public Radio

"Dina Davis, Program Director"

“Dave’s songs are refreshing and easy to listen to. I remember when I first heard Dave perform, I thought his voice had a similarity to Creed’s lead singer Scott Stapp, but Dave has the ability to take his vocals to a level that surpasses most.” - KPTE – 99.7FM (American General Media)


Formula 151 has released two CDs - Down on the Beaten Road (2005) and Yesterday’s Tomorrow (2007) – a two disc offering.
Broken Broom, Bittersweet, Gravity and Miss Had Enough - "Yesterday's Tomorrow" Disc 2 and Rise from "Down the Beaten Road" are on regular rotation and airplay with radio stations in the region and KSUT, National Public Radio.



Dave Mensch & Formula 151 as a band defies traditional classification, but is revered as an exciting and musically complex band that, with its compelling music, Mensch’s intoxicating vocals and the band’s genuine spirit on stage, has won over countless fans that span multiple generations. Echoing influences of Dave Matthews, Incubus, Staind, Matchbox Twenty and Bob Schneider (whose songs, among others, they cover in live performances), Dave Mensch & Formula 151 is uniquely from the mind of Mensch.

Mensch, whose elegance on stage and warm, personal rapport with audiences, has made him a favorite on stage, looks to record his first solo CD during 2009. His songs, most with introspective lyrics enhanced by intricate guitar arrangements, also adroitly make the jump to the edgier, acoustic rock sound of the full Formula 151 band.
