Five Alarm Funk
Downtown - Georgia Street Stage
Time 7:30 pm
"Citing influences such as Red Baraat and Antibalas… Five Alarm know how to get a party started” - Exclaim!
Hot, sweaty dance floors with feet stomping and everybody moving. Monster horns, crushing percussion and shredding psych-rock guitars. The Vancouver-based band released its sixth studio album, Sweat, this spring, getting right to the roots of what Five Alarm Funk is all about - epic, intense arrangements, heavy groove and a ton of fun. With Gabe Boothroyd and Oliver Gibson guitar, Jason Smith bass, Tayo Branston drums/vocals, Tom Towers congas, Carl Julig timbales, Eli Bennett saxophone, and Kent Wallace trumpet.
