Five Alarm Funk Release Live Video "May The Funk Be With You"
JUNO nominated group Five Alarm Funk have released a new live video for their high energy anthem “May The Funk Be With You” today via VENTS Magazine. Watch it now here. The new video, a clip from the recently released DVD album Live in the Moment, offers a glimpse into Five Alarm Funk’s psychedelic sound and legendary, wild performances already familiar to the band’s fans.
Live in the Moment, filmed last summer at The Vogue Theatre in their hometown of Vancouver, is currently available for purchase on PledgeMusic and will continue to be for sale at the band’s merch booth throughout the last leg of their summer tour. View the teaser here.
Five Alarm Funk have been touring North America since early June, with stops in Calgary, Winnipeg, Montreal, Toronto, and more. Next month, lucky fans out west can catch Five Alarm Funk at Shambhala Music Festival in Salmo, BC, and Robson Valley Music Festival in Dunster, BC.
