    • Five Alarm Funk says:

      We aren’t making it to the east coast this summer but hopefully we’ll be back to shred for you soon!

  8. Brian O-Hi says:

    Have fun at North Country Fair! Best festival ever (in the middle of nowhere!) I wish I was there. I saw you in Vancouver last weekend and the roof tore off the building, and a funk-filled purple sky said our souls would be forever rock and roll thanks you angels of dirty musical revelry.

  9. Danagerous says:

    No stop in Nelson? :( Maybe in the fall? My feeling is hurt…until you come back to Nelson. Then my feeling won’t hurt anymore.

  10. Rock and Roll says:

    You guys really Snarfed it up in Whistler!

  11. Pete says:

    I was looking for some recent clips and it looks like you guys have done away with Wacky Gourd Guy? Please say it isn’t so!

    • Five Alarm Funk says:

      Wacky Gourd Guy (AKA Nedster) is still performing and recording with the band, he just can’t make it on any extended tours. Keep checking the website and we will be announcing a CD release tour in the future…

  12. Malik says:

    Saw you guys for the first time at Jasper Folkfest a few days ago – *Mind-Blown*!! How the hell you guys play so incredibly tight while bouncing around the way you do on stage… I have no idea. Never was into funk b4, but am terminally funked-over now! Your fan for life. Can’t wait until you start touring Europe.

  13. Jerry Blackwood says:

    Just saw you guys at your North Van, B.C. Aug. 17 show. I regret that I only just discovered you at this venue. My sister who loves you, dragged me along, having no idea of what to expect. I was quite blown away by what I heard and saw! Friggin’ Wow!!! Amazing!! Loved it! I so need to see another show! Looking forward to your next album and video… on or
    around November 1? Gotta have that “Higgs Boson”!!!

  14. Brooks says:

    Stumbled upon your act at Evolve. Incredible. Didn’t know who you were going in and it was the best live performance I’ve ever seen. Will be following you guys in the future. Hope you are enjoying the east coast. Get to PEI someday!

  15. Elizabeth Marion says:

    I thought you were playing at Tin Horn Creek Winery on Aug. 24th, but I don’t see it on the list here.
    Are there any other wineries or small venues you’re playing at in and around Penticton this summer?
    My kids have made me a huge fan!
    Looking forward to seeing you live!

    • Five Alarm Funk says:

      Hi Elizabeth, the Tinhorn Creek show is still happening. I’ll add it to the list, hope to see you there!

  16. Amanda says:

    Hey! You guys should play the Open Sky Music Festival in Edmonton again this summer!! I’ve had the incredible pleasure of seeing you at the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival the last two summers, and last year at the Open Sky Festival. The Albertan girls would love for you to bring some of that BC sunshiney funk our way!!!

    • Jeremiah says:

      Wtf?!?! Why no Washington state shows;( I’m super bummed!!!

      • Five Alarm Funk says:

        Sorry Jeremiah, due to some legal issues we will be on a short hiatus of touring south of the border. Hopefully we will be back before the end of the year!

        • Jeremiah says:

          I hope u do its been awhile since I’ve seen you guys and I still listen to your music regularly but it’s not the same as live! You guys always put on a kick ass show!!! Ill keep checking back!

      • DeeDub says:

        I used to get to see you cats in the West Kootenay, but now I live in Regina (for the time being); please put us on your tour list and let me know when you can come – I’ll bring a group of people with me. ~~~

  22. Shane Kleisinger says:

    Hi. You rocked my sky at O’Hanlons in Regina earlier in the summer. Blew my mind apart. I showed the new record to my dad. He’s a jazz stand up bass player that has been playing in Regina for almost 50 years. He sat there and listened to the entire album with me; he’s never listed to a whole song of anything i’ve shown him. The first thing he said was, you can hear the Tower of Power and Jaco Pastorius influence. He said, if these guys went to Paris, they’d never let em leave, world class. Personally, I like the fact that you guys seem to focus on touring Canada and playing smaller shows close to home … ‘keepin in real’ I think is the term. Anyway, keep it up bros.


  23. Byron Marshall says:

    Caught your show at “Sunfest” in London. Best funk ever and super talented musicians. I’m a pro keyboard player and I really really dig your arrangements. Thanks for the trip.

    • Five Alarm Funk says:

      Thanks! We put a lot of rehearsal into figuring out the arrangements

    • Alan Graham says:

      I was at that Sunfest show too. I have to say, I didn’t know what to expect, but that was so much fun. The audience was really into it.
      You must come back.

  24. Fernand says:

    Any chance of making if far east.

    We`d love to see you at the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival in Fredericton, NB

    • Five Alarm Funk says:

      We love playing festivals. It really helps if you tell the organizers of Harvest Jazz and Blues that you want to see us there. Thanks!

    • Shane Kleisinger says:

      Fernand? Ha I showed you guys to this guy…a coworker/friend. Ya Fernand, tell those Harvest dudes how sick FAF is.
