Who: Five Alarm Funk
When: Friday, April 7, 2017
Where: Dicken’s Pub, Calgary AB
On Friday, April 7, a tsunami of funk descended on Dicken’s Pub in Calgary. Their second-to-last stop on their whirlwind tour of Canada was completely sold out and by the time the show was over everyone had been whipped into sweat-drenched, frothing frenzy of funk fueled ecstasy. Promoting their latest album release Sweat, the nine-strong melange of musicians put on another one of their signature high energy performances complete with dance moves and costume changes. I had the privilege of shooting the spectacle and all I can say is these boys have never failed to disappoint.

I’m Emily Frewin. I remember my dad teaching me how to take care of a record before I knew how to tie my shoes. Laying on the floor of my living room listening at full volume to a new album or bathing in the glory of an old one was how I spent most of my childhood and adolescence. Writing and music have always been important to me, so I’m very excited to be writing for Canadian Beats. I have a dog, a husband, and several children, some of which may or may not be mine. I spend my days fighting off the on-set of dementia by working for a Geomatics company, listening to music, trying to sell my children, watching movies, and planning out how to kidnap Idris Elba. I also own a T-Rex costume.
