When you get the funk, you got it. You hold it by the reins and ride it. Every musician and every dancer in a sweet conglomeration of groove that can carry you to the end of the universe. Hold the groove and never let it go. That’s Five Alarm Funk.

There are so many ways to describe the experience of watching Five Alarm Funk live. You can't help but dance. If you don't dance, then you shake your head. Your body moves you whether you will it or not. The power of this band is so energizing. You think you might be tired, but when they leave the stage, you want more.

OTB met with Tayo, the drummer, in London Ontario during Sunfest 2019. Such a down to Earth and wild guy that has a lot to say about this fantastic, funky band!
