The Turner Brothers are a 10-piece electro swing/ska band fronted by brothers Pat and Tony Turner.
The boys grew up writing feel good music in a variety of styles, until one night in Amsterdam they saw a ska band that changed everything. The vibe of the crowd and the good time had by all that night gave the lads the style they wanted to pivot the sound of the band around. It is this eclectic fusion of electro, funk and dance centered on ska and reggae that give ‘The Turner brothers’ a sound all of their own.
The major philosophy of the band from day one has been about positive energy and good vibes, which they aim to bring with them wherever they go.
Inspired by Madness, The Specials, Fat Freddy's Drop, Jamiroquai and many others the band started ambitiously with a European mini tour in 2015, where they performed at several sold-out shows throughout Austria and Greece, followed by a return to British soil for several headline gigs in London, and on their home turf in Watford. They had a well-received live session on BBC radio, as well as stand-out sets at Hogsozzle and Victorious festivals (to name but a few). They have released several singles and music videos, building themselves a healthy online fan base.
Plans for 2020 are to release the debut album in the spring (just in time for the festival season) and if the great response to their debut single, 'Shake', is anything to go by (10,000 views on Facebook in less than 48 hours), 2020 is looking like a very promising year indeed!
