Jenny Don’t and the Spurs are Portland’s hottest new roots-country four piece. Featuring Jenny Don’t, Kelly Halliburton (P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S., Pierced Arrows), Christopher March and Sam Henry (Wipers), Jenny Don’t and the Spurs bring a variety of musical styles and a formidable wealth of experience to the stage. Drawing from a long background of playing in some of Portlands best and most well known independent bands.
The Dizzy Brains from Madagascar will tour through Europe and play some great festivals this year! Don’t miss them.
The Dizzy Brains are a garage rock band, inspired by The Sonics, as there are many around the world, except for Madagascar, one of the poorest and most corrupt countries in the world and the birthplace of the quartet. Founded by two brothers, Eddy on vocals and Mahefa on bass, the group fights injustice, lack of possibilities and freedom restriction in the everyday life of the islanders. Their passion for life shines off during their concerts.
After almost 10 years of working on my own I am pleased to introduce my new co-worker Martha!
She starts working with five great bands, The Empire Strikes (Action Rock from Helsinki, Finland, video see below) and their friends Stacy Crowne (High Energy Rock’n’Roll from Cologne, Germany), The Gentlemens (Blues Garage Punkrock from Ancona, Italy), Grande Royale (High Energy Rock’n’Roll from Jönköping, Sweden) and The Dirty Denims (Rock/Hardrock from Eindhoven, Netherlands).
Please contact Martha, if you are interested in organizing a show.
Turbo Booking is proud to work with IDestroy. It’s no secret that the three girls love to play live and throw every last drop of energy into doing so. In their short time together they have nearly 200 gigs under their belt. From big stages such as Bristol Pride and Rebellion Festival to acoustic sessions for BBC introducing, Sofar Sounds and Glastonbury Festival, proving there’s not a single thing that can faze them. Their 2019 Europe tour guarantees to be a hell of a lot of fun and most importantly, loud!

The amazing IDEAL tribute band Schöne Frau mit Geld and also my friends F*cking Angry from Bonn will tour as much as they can in 2018 and everybody is looking forward to that as well!
This year started really bad. Jonny, the very talented P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. singer and former actor and vegan restaurant owner and above all the nicest guy you can imagine, died yesterday. He has certainly experienced a lot in his 33 years, but he died far too young. We will all miss you, Jonny.
“It is with heavy hearts and saddened minds that we announce the passing of our dear friend and singer Jonny Jewels, AKA Jon Paul Steuer. The addition of Jonny to our dysfunctional band family was one of the best choices that we have ever made, and he brought a much needed sense of fun and lightheartedness to everything we did. He was only with us for a little more than a year, but we managed to cram a lifetime of great experiences into his tenure as our singer: dozens shows at home in Portland and across several states, an amazing European tour, and our best full-length release yet.
We’ve lost our singer, but far, far more than that we’ve lost a friend.
Rest in peace, Jonny…we love you.
Jon Paul Steuer March 27, 1984 – January 1, 2018”
– P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. –

Sorry! The tour van booking request form on https://turbo-booking.com/tour-van/ doesn’t work correctly at the moment. I’m working on the solution right now. Meanwhile please write an email to mary(AT)turbo-booking(DOT)de for a tour van booking request. I’m really sorry if you tried already and didn’t get a reply from me!
The Anarcho Punk legend Subhumans will tour in February 2017 in Germany and the Netherlands followed by lots of festivals in summer in whole Europe.
Eric “Vegetable” Olson (Poison Idea) and Kelly Halliburton (Problems, Defiance, Pierced Arrows etc.) joined Don’t (Rockstar Records, Germany / Doomtown Sounds, Portland), the band of Wipers-drummer Sam Henry and singer Jenny Don’t. This Portland Punk Allstar band will tour in May and June 2017 through Europe and bring their new 7inch.
Dominik from Canal Terror and Molotow Soda is the new guitarist for the popular punk band F*cking Angry from Bonn, Germany (Rilrec). They will play as much as they can in 2017!
Detroit 442 (angry oldschool punkrock from Detroit, one of the most violent cities in the world) will tour Europe in March 2017.
After her successfull first tour with a full band Louise Distras will come back with her girls and boys in April/May 2017.
Pete Bentham and the Dinner Ladies are back! After a small break the only Kitchen core band in the world will be back in April 2017 with their new 4 track vinyl EP “Pychedelic Village” (Antipop Records)!
The Ghost Wolves from Texas were signed by Hound Gawd! Records (Berlin, Germany) and will publish their new album “Texas Platinum” in spring 2017, followed by a 3-week European tour.
I can’t believe that the Jenny Don’t And The Spurs and the Louise Distras tour both are over. But Jenny will come back in May/June with Don’t (including their new band member Eric “Vegetable” Olson from Poison Idea) and also Louise will come back in April with her band! 🙂
Thank you very much, people, who organized shows, people, who promoted shows and people, who came and enjoyed these two amazing bands!
Don’t be sad when the summer is over – because in fall the wonderful singer-songwriter Louise Distras will tour with a full band in Europe! Louise Distras channels her anger, hopes and fears into anthems of love and fury for yet another let down generation. Ticking both the post-punk and pop boxes with explosive lyrics and riotous sonic disposition, Distras’ live shows are “high energy face rippers that stand out like a meteor”.

Exciting news! Cheetah Chrome, the original Dead Boys guitarist, will come to Europe for a few shows in August and then again in October 2016! Turbo Booking is happy to help. 🙂
Cheetah Chrome’s explosive songwriting and raw tone influenced an entire generation of players and has been reflected in some most revered and popular bands including The Hellacopters, The Darkness, Powder Monkeys or Supersuckers.
From cutting his chops and being an architect for the US punk rock sound in Cleveland, Ohio with Rocket from The Tombs to relocating to New York City as a founding member of one of the most prolific punk rock bands of the genre, The Dead Boys.
In Fall 2016, Cheetah Chrome will be returning to Europe to embark on a tour across mainland Europe. With “The Knobs” Cheetah has recruited a quality cast of band mates who have aligned themselves with his style and have brought his influence to their country, Tony Leewenburgh aka “Tony Slug” (BGK, Nitwitz, The Hydromatics, Loveslug, The Spades), Theo Brouwer (Lords Of Altamont, The Nitwitz, The Hydromatics) and Ries Doms (The Kik, The Hydromatics, Powervice, The Spades).

Portland’s hottest new roots-country four piece “Jenny Don’t and the Spurs” will come back to Europe after only six months, because we all had too much fun with the country experience! Featuring Jenny Don’t (Don’t, Ladies Of The Night), Kelly Halliburton (P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S., Pierced Arrows), JT Halmfilst (Thee Headliners, Audios Amigos) and Sam Henry (Wipers, Rats, Napalm Beach, Don’t)! While the sound of the Spurs is original and draws from deep wells of personal experience, the band pays stylistic homage to the greats of the genre – Patsy Cline, Ernest Tubb, Hank Williams Sr., Loretta Lynne, and all the rest of the real players from the 1940s and 50s…

Thank you all for organizing and watching the alltogether 63 shows of Don’t and the P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. from January till March! Luckily Jenny (Don’t), Kelly (P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S., Dead Moon etc.) and Sam (Don’t, Ex-Wipers) are staying for 19 more shows with their fantastic roots country band Jenny Don’t and the Spurs!

Luckily I found some new places where they can play – many thanks to all the local promoters!
I’m stoked to announce that Turbo Booking now helps the terrific Steakknife (Hardcore Punk from Saarbrücken with legendary singer Lee Hollis from the Spermbirds) with bookings outside Germany!
Let Lee Hollis speak for himself: “We‘ve been doing this forever. 22 years I think. At least long enough to put an eight year distance between ‘One Eyed Bomb’ and our last record ‘Parallel Universe of the Dead’. So yeah, forever. Steakknife has always felt like ‘the right thing to do’. Even on the worst day of the shittiest tour in the middle of winter and ‘Fuck everyone in and OUTSIDE of this BUS!’ we were all in that bus because it was ‘the right thing TO DO.’ Because the music we make is the music we listen to. I wrote that about fifteen years ago and it‘s still true today.”
Turbo Booking is busy as a bee. I’m preparing eight tours right now for Portland’s admirable and adorable Don’t, P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. and Jenny Don’t & The Spurs, also for Feral Kizzy‘s wonderful wave/dark pop which always reminds me of the B-52’s, another tour for the very special all-girl post punk/noise pop band Punčke from Croatia and last but not least for the Veggers, Reddot and the Dead Buttons, the first Korean punk bands ever touring in Germany!
Sorry, I have to increase the price for the tour van rental from December 1st, 2015. At the moment it’s not even possible to cover the costs for insurance, maintenance and repair from 75 € per day let alone making any profit. As it is really important for me that the vans always are in a very good condition, I have to take 80 € per day in future and see how it is going from there. There are still no extra costs for navigation device, additional drivers, fully comprehensive insurance, winter tyres, fine processing and final cleaning!
Sad news! As Guitarist Bruce had to have heart surgery, all Subhumans dates for September 2015 are off. He is okay but in recovery for at least 2 weeks. Get well soon, Bruce!
