Jenny Don’t and the Spurs Europe 2016 – Part II

By

Jun 1, 2016 News 0 Comments

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…

Feb 24, 2016 News 0 Comments

Unfortunately The Veggers and Reddot had to cancel their Switzerland and Italy shows in April. Two members of the Veggers didn’t perform their military service yet and the Korean government only allows them to travel to one country.

CANCELLED:
Apr/15/16 CH – Basel, Off Bar
Apr/17/16 CH – Biel, Schrottbar
Apr/18/16 CH – Zürich, Boschbar
Apr/19/16 IT – Turin, El Paso

Luckily I found some new places where they can play – many thanks to all the local promoters!

Steakknife goes Europe

By

Feb 3, 2016 News 0 Comments

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.”

Upcoming tours 2016

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!

Beside the upcoming tours you can book the Subhumans, Citizen Fish, Culture Shock, Dead Buttons, P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S., Sects Tape, 1982 and Pete Bentham & the Dinner Ladies for festivals in 2016.

New price – tour van rental

By

Nov 25, 2015 News 0 Comments

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!
