Alive After Five: The Navy Band Northwest Funk Band and Edmond Dantes

The Grove Plaza Aug. 21


The Grove Plaza getting waist-deep in funk, bringing in the seven-piece brass group The Navy Band Northwest Funk Band. The group plays classic instrumental funk music with two trombones, two saxophones and two trumpets

Co-headlining is Boise band Edmond Dantes, with its electronic pop hooks, cascading melodies and electronic keys.

The night opens with the Boise Rock School, a troupe of little rockers covering classic tunes. The school was founded in 2008 as a way to get Boiseans playing rock 'n' roll.

"From proper technique to creativity and songwriting, from music theory to listening and problem solving skills, we help students ... not only become better musicians, but better people," the mission statement for the Boise Rock School reads.
