No, you haven’t heard of the Con Turner Von Simmons Band before, mostly because they’ve never played before. But you have heard the bands that this local supergroup is formed from: Shak Nasti, Leisure Chief, Brown Note, Gargamel, Kow, God’s Personal Stash and more. Tim Turner, Matt Lapham, Derek Engstrom and Jorge Colon Jr. team up for a night of musical mastery, paying tribute to their diverse influences, like David Bowie, Frank Zappa, Steely Dan and Pavement. Colon’s Con Leche project starts the night off with some Afro-Cuban jazz to get the ball rolling.
