Taste of Edmonton 2019
July 18-28
Alberta Legislature Grounds

Taste & CKUA are proud to present Five Alarm Funk on July 22nd located at the Capital Plaza. From their first house party jams, drummer Tayo Branston and guitarist Gabe Boothroyd gathered a community of musicians who shared their love for James Brown, Tower Of Power, Tito Puente, Antibalas, Frank Zappa and other adventurous groove-driven players. They called themselves Five Alarm Funk, drew more than 300 fans to their first gig at a local place called The Fairview Pub, established a residency at Richards On Richards where upwards of 800 attendees would show up each night - to eventually embark on a 37-day, cross-continental track involving 30 shows from Vancouver to Fredericton.

Supporting Act:
David Jay (The Spaniard)
Mercy Funk

To celebrate 35 amazing years of Taste of Edmonton. We're delivering up the biggest and most diverse lineup of music acts this city has ever experienced! With 30 artists, from Indie to Hip Hop, Taste of Edmonton has you covered!
