Taste of Edmonton 2019
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.
