The Turkeys bring their brand of re-invented rock ‘n’ roll to Behringer-Crawford’s Music@BCM tonight

The bald eagle may be our national bird, but Covington’s favorite bird/ band of choice just might be The Turkeys. Expanding musical boundaries, while fusing genres, these acoustic-minded artists are an essential part of the Covington folk music scene.

The group includes Chris Cusentino, guitar/vocals; Kyle Knapp, guitar/vocals; Brad Meinerding, lead guitar/vocals; Harold Kennedy, guitar/vocals; Brian Aylor, drums and Mike Barrett, bass.

According to the band’s bio, “The Turkeys move seamlessly through traditional bluegrass, rock and classic country genres – all featuring smoking guitar solos and pristine, three-part harmony.”

Influenced by late 1960s groups like Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young and The Grateful Dead, among others, The Turkeys have produced two albums of original music and one of covers, and in 2007 received the Cincinnati Entertainment Award for best country album for “Every Night’s the Same.”
