Troy Turner Blues Band 

Troy Turner - Born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Troy Turner is an artist not easily pigeon-holed. He has hung out with many of the earlier generation … including Tabby Thomas, Buddy Guy, Henry Gray and Raful Neal. He has spent an inordinate amount of time with the Neal family and has nearly been considered a member of that first family of the blues. He has played behind Raful Neal, toured with Kenny Neal and was in a high school garage band with Kenny’s younger brothers, Frederick and Darnell. Troy has influences stretching beyond the Baton Rouge blues scene, from the late Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan to Prince.

Troy has opened for The Neville Brothers, B.B. King, Dr. John, Steppenwolf, Edgar Winter, Etta James, Leon Russell, the Ohio Players, Albert Collins, Koko Taylor, Bobby Bland, White Spirit, Jeff Healey, Derik Trucks, Gatemouth Brown. He has played with Albert Collins, Bo Joque, and C.J. Chenier. Troy Turner has played the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival every year from 1988 to 1995 and returned to play the festival in 2011 and 2012.

On the European scene, Troy Turner has toured Amsterdam, Belgium, Paris, Italy, Germany, Russia and Finland, introducing these countries to his style of New Orleans Blues, funk and rock & roll. Troy Turner is the epitome of New Orleans Blues, fun and rock & roll being compared to B.B. King, Buddy Guy Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimi Hendrix. He is an amazing performer and artist with a true New Orleans Blues Soul.

Blues Dance Lessons
Blues dance, like Blues music, is soulful, expressive and rhythmic: it can be the perfect way to celebrate the end of a work week, meet new people or just groove to whatever the band is playing! Originating in the United States in the late 1800s, Blues dance has recently been embraced anew by communities across North America for its versatility and emphasis on connection between partners. More info, contact Matt Long or Jen Rush of Nova Blues dance community. No previous dance experience necessary!
