I had heard a lot of great things about Five Alarm Funk and it seemed every time they were in town, I was busy or just couldn’t make it. Last night, I finally had the pleasure of attending one of their shows for The Walleye, and I now understand what the big deal was. They were amazing! As soon as they started playing the packed dance floor was insane. I soon realized just how many local fans they had. I ended up staying for about 4 songs because it was a work night, but it was more than enough time to capture some great photos.
Not to be outdone, the opening the act was The Thirsty Monks, who I had seen live before. They were the perfect opening band as they really got the crowd growing. I would almost say they matched Five Alarm Funk with the energy level. All in all, it was such an electric and fun evening of music.
