Turbo Street Funk

WHAT A GREAT SHOW!

February 16, 2019, The Wallaceburg and District Council for the Arts along with their sponsors: Kim Murray Desjardins Insurance, New Vision Optical and Riversite Realty; hosted a performance by Turbo Street Funk at the Jeanne Gordon Theatre.

  

What a great evening! The band Turbo Street Funk defied convention when recently performing to a full theatre in Wallaceburg. Turbo Street Funk thrilled the crowed with their infectious sounds of music and a performance style rooted in the New Orleans horn band tradition. Turbo Street Funk combined Top 40 hits with original music in a fabulous show that had people moving and dancing all night long.

Formed in 2011, Turbo Street Funk started as a professional busking band, performing on the streets of Toronto four days a week each spring and summer while members of the band attended university. The band received high praise from local journalists for their fresh sound and popularity with Toronto audiences.
