Some bands want to change the world. Five Alarm Funk’s goal is much simpler.
They want you to sweat.
That’s been the idea since the first time drummer Tayo Branston, guitarist Gabe
Boothroyd and the original Five Alarm bassist Neil Towers met at a Vancouver house
party in 2003. Since that night, the temperature in their leafy green hometown began to
rise. Other musicians started showing up to jam. The parties led to gigs locally, which
led a few years later to grinding bus tours across Canada and into the States. The
crowds grew. The grooves burned. A horn section jumped onboard to punch the beat
harder. Percussion cranked it up even more. EPs and albums followed, as studios and
gear melted down from the sheer intensity these guys unleashed.
