We return to the Nectar Lounge with Five Alarm Funk, the 9-piece high-energy experience out of Vancouver, Canada and Seattle’s Fabulous Party Boys.

Five Alarm Funk

Gypsy-Rock / Afro-Funk / Latin / Ska & Punk

Five Alarm Funk is a horn powered, percussion fueled sonic and visual assault. 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.

Need proof? Take a listen to any of Five Alarm Funk’s studio albums, which include Anything Is Possible (winner of Instrumental Album of the Year at the 2011 Western Canadian Music Awards) and Rock the Sky (which was nominated for Instrumental Recording of the Year at the 2013 WCMAs and Instrumental Album of the Year at that year’s Juno Awards.)

Fabulous Party Boys

Gypsy-Rock / Afro-Funk / Latin / Ska & Punk

The Fabulous Party Boys are a seven-piece, hard-hitting, horn-heavy party funk band. Based in Seattle, they blend funk, rock, and soul with a little quirkiness to create an infectious party atmosphere guaranteed to get you on the dance floor. From funky beats to fun lyrics, tight horns to electric tuba, The Fabulous Party Boys satisfy the funkophile in all of us.
