The behemoth monstrosity of sound and energy that is FIVE ALARM FUNK is coming back to Windsor in grand style.

The dance party machine returns, this time, to play on the massive sound system at Venue Music Hall with a perfect, new, opening act.

The Soul Delegation is an 8-piece Motown/soul/funk super group that explodes these genres with a tightness and precision that will excite you into grind-grooves to warm up the dance floor…for the FUNK MONSTERS from Vancouver.

Five Alarm Funk:
“Hot, sweaty dance floors with feet stomping and every body moving. Grooves for days. Monster horns and shredding psych-rock guitars. Oh, and giant killer robots. Let’s not forget about those.

These are among the elements that make up the Five Alarm Funk experience. The Vancouver-based band is nine men strong and over a decade deep into a career that has seen it release five acclaimed albums and burn up stages across the country on four national tours. And this vehicle isn’t about to slow down. In fact, Five Alarm Funk is just picking up steam.

Don’t be fooled by the name: there’s more to Five Alarm Funk than, well, funk. Just ask drummer Tayo Branston, who says that, although they are rooted in the style that gives the outfit its name, he and his bandmates thrive on being able to transcend that genre by seamlessly mixing in elements of Gypsy rock, Latin music, ska, and even prog-metal. “I would say that it’s intense, passionate, and fun, genre-spanning music that really anybody can get onboard with,” Tayo says. “It’s got such an array of different sounds, and you can tell that each player has his own individual take and input into each track.”

ONLY $10!
Tickets on sale at Phog Lounge…soon to be elsewhere also.
