“Five Minutes With” Rage-Funk band, Raincity

If No Doubt had a child with the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Rage Against the Machine, it would be Raincity.

Raincity is a Vancouver-based Rage-Funk band fronted by female leads on saxophone and vocals. Their live shows are unique and explosive. They have performed over 300 shows since their inception opening for acts such as Our Lady Peace, Bif Naked, and Five Alarm Funk on stages such as the Commodore Ballroom and The Bill Reid Amphitheater. Their newest album “A Proper Latte” is coming out April 2022 followed by their first Canadian tour in May, and June.
