Turtle Folk w/ Dyn-O-Mite! at Aisle 5 Saturday, January 31st, 2015 $8 adv // $10 dos // All Ages http://bit.ly/1ziNnnt Turtle Folk The legend of Turtle Folk bubbles from the swampy underbelly of the Savannah, GA marsh. Originally formed as Wassaw Sound in 2000 (featuring Jamie, and Sean with Charlie Murray on bass), it wasn’t long before they began collaborations with Joe and Zack in the famed Upton Road basement in Atlanta, GA. It was here during these basement sessions where Spiderman, Turtle Folk’s first original composition, was born. A few years later, they were introduced to percussionist, Ross Sparks. It was a perfect marriage of drums and percussion, but it would still be three years before Ross would join the band full time. After playing a few weeks on the open mic circuit in Savannah, the band found itself playing its first real gig at J.J. Cagney's on July 12, 2003. That evening the band featured Joe on guitar, and guest vocalist Michael "Turtle" McCormick on a rendition of Neil Young's "Cortez the Killer." There was magic that summer night - immediately the group added Joe and Mike to the mix and became known as Turtle Folk. Later in 2006, Ross became a permanent fixture on percussion. Finally, as if to come full circle, Zack joined the band to round out the current line up later that same year. Turtle Folk celebrated the release of their first full-length album, Higher Plan, in April 2011. The album was recorded at Elevated Basement Studios in Savannah, GA, produced by Kevin Rose (Gregg Allman, Stewart Copeland) and mastered by Brad Blackwood (Alison Krauss, Black Eyed Peas, North Mississippi Allstars). The album is now available online through iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, and DigStation. Since then the band has gone on to tour around the South East at venues from Florida to West Virginia including a breakthrough performance at the 2011 FloydFest in Floyd, VA. The guys have also been a part of the Sweetwater 420 Fest in Atlanta, GA and the Hoopee Jam festival in Swainsboro, GA. Turtle Folk has shared the stage with members of The Black Crowes, Drivin' n' Cryin', Spin Doctors, Aquarium Rescue Unit, Drive-By Truckers, Outformation, Perpetual Groove, Particle, Brothers Past, The Duo, Amfibian and more. The band was voted ‘Best Local Rock Band’ by the Connect Savannah Readers Poll in 2007 and "Best Local Jamband" in 2010. Turtle Folk continues to gain momentum by playing electrifying shows that always leave the fans wanting more. http://www.turtlefolk.net/ Dyn-O-Mite! Dyn-O-Mite! was formed to explore organ driven funky tunes, familiar and obscure, as well as compose original music reflective of this style of music. http://www.dynomitefunk.com/
