Funk made in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.



Carter & the Capitals are a high energy five-piece funk group from Edmonton, Alberta. Known for their signature, hard-driving sound, soulful vocals, and catchy instrumental riffs, the Capitals fuse the most danceable elements of the pop and funk genres. Since forming in 2015, the Capitals have been consistently building their audience throughout Western Canada with wild live performances and infectious singles. They have been support acts for Busty & The Bass, Har Mar Superstar as well as multiple support dates with Five Alarm Funk. The Capitals are in the process of recording their debut full-length album, eagerly expected in 2018. The first single off of the new record, “One Step from Magic” is available everywhere.

“Soulful lyrics, sultry grooves and toe-tapping tunes are just three of many things to expect at a Carter & the Capitals show – that, and a healthy dose of 70’s swagger. Carter & the Capitals [...] craft their own original sound that flawlessly blends together the most high-energy elements of pop, funk and R&B. [They] captivate crowds of all ages and musical preferences with an eclectic mix of bluesy ballads and energetic bangers that are guaranteed to leave show-goers tapping their toes to the beat for days to follow.”
