Blue Turtle Seduction: 16 States Tour


Blue Turtle Seduction
Blue Turtle Seduction is no stranger to the road - and now their "16 States, 13 Floors Tour", which kicked off yesterday in Sparks, Nevada, leads them across 16 states in support of their digital release of 13 Floors (JamBase review). The bluegrass, folk, hip-hop and rock ensemble will make their way through Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Wisconsin, Minnesota and several other states before heading back west with a finale in Dunsmuir, CA, at Sengthong's Blue Sky Room on May 16, less than a month after the tour kicks off.

Featuring Jay Seals (guitar, vocals) Glenn Stewart (harmonica, pan flute, vocals), Christian Zupancic (violin, mandolin, vocals), Stephen Seals (bass) and Adam Navone (drums), the band met while working at a resort in South Lake Tahoe. Several highlights on this tour include the Norman Music Festival and the Hemp Hoe Down, as well as sharing bills with Oakhurst, That 1 Guy, Madahoochi, 56 Hope Road and Pert' Near Sandstone.

It's a bummer that North Carolina is not one of those 16 states.

WHEEEE!!! Finally!! Go east young Turtle!! I just packed another 5 shows under my belt which brings me to a whopping 170+ shows since 2003. I brag because there is nothing like the BTS experience, my new Turtle inspired dance moves has carved a specific niche in my body that needs their bounce. If I go too long without, I start feeling empty. hehee....Get 13 Floors, its got 2 distinct parts of the album which is food for a great few journeys of the spirit and mind. I just hope that summer of 2010 will include events they truly TRULY deserve: like ROthbury and Bonnaroo and 10K etc etc....Weve dun em in and now its time for these other festivals to be seduced, because they are missing out. Have a great tour, dont miss this band!!!
