FKB

Four-piece alt rock band FKB brings their infectious energy to the iconic King Eddy stage on Thursday, February 23.

About FKB

FKB is influenced by the mystique, glamour, and excess of the 1960s-1980s entertainment business.

Formed in Bonnyville, Alberta and based in Edmonton, the band is fronted by JUNO Award-nominated songwriter (2019), Drew Shalka, and features Travis Topylki (lead guitar), Derek Chalut (drums), and Alex Fedorouk (rhythm guitar).

FKB’s infectious, falsetto-driven single, “Beautiful Fantasy” (2021) is co-produced by Dan Davidson (Tupelo Honey) and Clayton Bellamy (Road Hammers). “’Beautiful Fantasy’ is us finding a way to connect our influences from the past, like The Beatles, Elvis Presley, and The Beach Boys, with the modern sounds of Foster The People, Portugal the Man and The Weeknd,” says Shalka. “We wanted to draw from the excitement of our live shows and give people something they can dance to.”

FKB has performed over 200 shows across North America since 2017. In 2019, they won the Edmonton edition of the Jim Beam National Talent Search, which culminated in a showcase performance at Canadian Music Week (Toronto).
