The Vancouver-based band of eight have one common goal: to make you sweat on the dance floor. With grooves that march on for days, infectious horns, crushing percussion and psych-rock guitar leads, Five Alarm Funk is more of an experience than a concert.

The octet has rocked dance floors across the world for over a decade, releasing five acclaimed albums and gaining a following as one of the greatest dance bands touring right now.

Show openers Shakewell are a “funk brotherhood” of longtime friends and collaborators who play funk, neo-soul and rock n’ roll.

Five Alarm Funk will play The Hive on Thursday, Jan. 25. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m. Shakewell will open. General admission tickets are $15 in advance or $18 at the door. Check out for more information.
