Major Funk and the Employment is a hard working group of dedicated musicians whose collective ambition is to deliver high quality danceables to the people. Founded in Whitehorse in 2014 by bassist and bandleader Etienne Girard, the band mixes a strong and steadfast rhythm section with a colourful collection of guitars, horns, keyboards, and passionate vocals. Major Funk’s big and unique sound has gotten crowds grooving at some of the Yukon’s biggest events, creating a vibrant and rambunctious party atmosphere at every step along the way. What’s Up Yukon has characterized Major Funk as “quirky but really smooth". CBC Yukon hosted the band for an interview and live performance in both 2014 and 2016. In early 2016 the band recorded a live album and video entitled “Hot Off The Floor” to capture their live energy and showcase their eclectic style and musicianship. Gig by gig, Major Funk and the Employment continue to bring their tight, bass-driven tunes to enthusiastic audiences far and wide.
