Five Alarm Funk & Too Many Zooz
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, the band wows with punchy horns, gang-chant vocals and more that have ignited fans across Canada, down into the U.S., and as far away as Taiwan. The curious thing about being a fan of brasshouse? You’re pretty much talking about being into one solitary but extremely unforgettable band, Too Many Zooz.
