FUNK ‘n’ ROLL – How do we do it? We take the sturdiness of a rock band, immerse it in 60′s and 70′s funk, soul, rhythm and blues, outfit it with rich tones of warm guitar tube amps, organ, electric piano, tambourine and fat basslines, put powerhouse vocals out front… And most importantly, create harmony on and off stage… If you’re down for a great live music band that is far enough away from the mainstream, but funky enough to dance all night, this is the original showcase you can’t miss.
Dawn in the City is an Edmonton, Alberta based, five-piece, live performance group that specializes in mixing up rock ‘n’ roll, funk, blues, soul and dance music for many types of events. They play their original music and cover many classic artists such as Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder, AC/DC, Wilson Pickett and The Blues Brothers. They provide their own sound and lights, and put on a spirit-lifting stage show that is second to none. If you have a venue you’d like to fill with a Funk ‘n’ Roll party, count on Dawn in the City to bring it, and bring it good!
Dawn in the City co-produced their debut album called "Groove In Every Stitch" with Singer/Songwriter/Producer Todd Dunsmore of Nanaimo BC band Kings Without.
Dawn in the City's front man Bernal Ibarra is a dynamic performer whose style is infused with diverse musical tastes, mixing classic soul vocals, driving R&B organ, brazen funk rhythms and fiery rock and roll guitar. Eight years later, he and Dawn in the City are still hard at it, refining their skills and inspirations to define the Dawn In The City sound, present and future.
