Blue Turtle Seduction Tour

Blue Turtle Seduction West Coast Tour

Blue Turtle Seduction
From the partying, up-beat social scene of South Lake Tahoe comes Blue Turtle Seduction, a high-energy dance band traveling in a vegetable oil-fueled tour bus. The group is on the road through November, bringing their five-piece rock, bluegrass, reggae and hip-hop party machine to eager cities in California and Nevada.

This band captures the "work hard, play hard" mentality and transforms it into a musical art form. Featuring Jay Seals (guitar, vocals), Glenn Stewart (harmonica, pan flute, vocals), Christian Zupancic (violin, mandolin, vocals), Stephen Seals (bass) and Adam Navone (drums), Blue Turtle Seduction is music with a message. Bolstered by a tireless work ethic, the quintet boasts inventive lyrics, endless harmonies, melodic string and woodwind arrangements and a grooving rhythm section that gets audiences moving in sync.

yo stealin' - get a map and realize that this band doesn't have a lot of cash or a huge following. check out the clubs they are playing. this is a local band trying to build a local following. so they are not playing red rocks and deer creek... but if you have been to great basin or the starry plow you would know that blue turtle will be playing a bunch of small gigs at some great places.

Blue Tutle is amazing. I saw them at wakarusa late night at a small tent and they ended up being one of the best bands to play the festival. The amount of fun they have perfroming was something I hadnt seen in a while. Just pray for there perfect gentleman cover it is very niice. hopefully they make it to chicago sometime...

if any of you were at las tortugas this weekend youd know blue turtle knows how to throw down, or is at least able to put together a wicked weekend of music. may not love the music, but gotta love the vibe.

My band opened for them in Truckee once at a festival called SOULstice that raised money for underprivileged kids. They actually played for 1/2 the cost that they normally do and were super friendly to the opening acts. Honestly, I don't like their music - but as far as I can tell they are genuinely good folks...never dealt with their manager though.

BTS just toured all over the east coast and CO. etc etc....the last 2 months. They need to hit up the upper midwest indeed. This is a homecoming tour, all of their fave places to play. Wish I could do em all. I cant get enough. Las Tortugas was fuckin amazing last weekend, and it waas great to hear BTS play every set with creativity and tightness with no repeats and a lot of special guests. The new chapter is starting in their history and its exciting to hear whats unfolding. I hope they stick around for a verry long time, because I feel that sing alongs and great melodies lack in this music scene, and while BTS wont provide hawt Trey like guitar solos, they provide what a lot of bands dont for me.

I actually just caught a couple BTS shows in Denver and thought they were pretty awesome. There is a ton of energy in that unit. I had the pleasure of speaking with a few of them and I didn't think they were jerks at all!?

I did hear their manager was recently let go, maybe they are on a new horizon? I don't know, but I wouldn't let a manager stop me from seeing a great live band. And that, they are.

I have a lot of respect for these guys. They work hard and play even harder. It showed this weekend at Tortugas and at every show. Change is good and I look forward to the future. I think they have a really good thing going and I love their music.

They Are a good band and I've had good times carving turns to their tunes. I know too much about the seedy under belly of the music world, remember Lenny Hart??? Like I said before, " A knife in the back and more of the same". They have been dealing with a shyster, they just need a little enlightening.
