HEADLINER: 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. 
Falcon Jane

Falcon Jane is the musical project of Sara May, a singer-songwriter from rural Ontario. Her songs exist somewhere between heaven and earth: honest and grounded, yet ethereal and transportive. Falcon Jane’s 2018 album "Feelin’ Freaky" earned enthusiastic support from press outlets like Gold Flake Paint, The Grey Estates, Impose, and more, and their dynamic, three-piece lineup perfectly captures the intensity of May’s writing.

Jayden Grahlman

Being around Jayden when he has a guitar in his hand and a song on his lips is like being around a good thing. There’s nothing to figure out, it’s just musical joy. Combining effervescent, capable song writing with truly staggering guitar chops, he delivers performances that not only say “man can this guy play” but more over “isn’t this music wonderful!” Jayden can often be heard singing at local establishments in the area where the seats are packed and the music is a buzz. His smile will light up the room while his music fills your heart!

She worked with songwriter Eric Emerson and recorded them at Pinnacle Studios in Belleville.
