Yes, Five Alarm Funk are headed back to TD Sunfest! … with their foot-stomping, sweaty fun, ignited by monster horns, crushing percussion and shredding psych-rock guitars. While funk is the name of the FAF groove, there’s also plenty of Gypsy rock, Latin music, ska and even prog-metal to keep things extra spicy. The band’s drummer, Tayo Branston says: “Five Alarm Funk is intense and passionate, with genre-spanning music that anybody can get aboard with.” After touring their 2017 Juno-nominated album, Sweat, and releasing the EP We Play the Funk (featuring the legendary Bootsy Collins), the boys are already stocking up on towels for their annual festival love-in at Victoria Park. In the meantime, best of luck, guys, on being nominated by the Western Canadian Music Awards for 'Instrumental Artist of the Year'.
