Queer As Funk
Vancouver’s hottest dance band is coming to the Tidemark Theatre! Infectious grooves with powerhouse vocals, tight horns and rhythms that just won’t quit, Queer As Funk’s repertoire ranges from beloved funk, soul and Motown classics, to contemporary pop favourites that will have you on the dance floor all night long. There’s nothing this tight-knit band of talented musicians love more than performing together and that love is palpable to audiences everywhere. Their shows always sell out so get you tickets early!
“There’s nowt so queer as folk”, or so the old English adage goes. Queer As Funk believes in celebrating differences, and what better way than with a big ol’ dance party?
