Five Alarm Funk
Saturday, July 13 at 8pm 

From their first jams in Vancouver, B.C., drummer Tayo Branston and guitarist Gabe Boothroyd gathered a community of musicians who shared their love for James Brown, Tower Of Power and other groove-driven players. Now called Five Alarm Funk - with Eli Bennett on sax, Oliver Gibson on guitar, Tom Towers on congas, Carl Julig on timbales, Kent Wallace on trumpet, Jay Smith on bass, and Jens Christiansen on sax added to the lineup - the band bristles with fiery rhythms, punchy horns and gang-chant vocals that have ignited fans across Canada, down into the U.S., and as far away as Taiwan. 
Julian Taylor Band
Saturday, August 10 at 8pm
 

The voice drifting into the lobby from the soundcheck sounds so timeless it might be emerging from some ancient well of souls at the end of the world, but it’s also fresh and vulnerable. Not a revivalist, but a musical revisionist, Julian Taylor masterfully re-combines and updates the vintage sounds that inspired him, to create bold, innovative songs. Taylor, of both West Indian and Native Canadian decent, is a charismatic frontman, prolific songwriter, and endearing individual – the kind who immediately connects and makes you feel at ease. 

Wild Rivers

Saturday, August 17 at 8pm

Wild Rivers immerse their folk-pop originals into the warm musical styles of the artists that influenced them. With over 16 million streams on Spotify, the four-piece band effortlessly blends exquisite harmonies, beautiful songwriting, and a captivating stage presence, while their vibe fits equally well in listening rooms and symphony halls.

Birds of Bellwoods
Saturday, August 24 at 8pm
 

Toronto-based alt-rock outfit Birds of Bellwoods have wasted little time making an indelible mark on Canada’s musical landscape, having amassed an impressive pile of achievements and accolades in a few short years on the back of their boisterous blend of anthemic alternative, folk, and pop music. Much of the attention to come their way thus far has stemmed from the band’s energetic and engaging live performances. They’ve crossed Canada and dipped into the U.S. for all kinds of dates, including a slew of major Canadian music festivals, support slots with the likes of Arkells and Wintersleep, and some high-profile headlining sets of their own.
