Local supergroup Con Turner Von Simmons Band pays tribute to their influences


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.
