Nervous Turkey

Nervous Turkey spawned the night before Thanksgiving 2006 at Stoney’s Lounge (on Hooker’s Point) in Tampa, FL. The harp driven, organ and drum trio started w/ a Blues foundation but quickly developed their signature “Greased Roll ‘n Soul” sound, incorporating elements of Soul, Rock ‘n Roll, Gospel, Funk, Americana, Folk, and even some Carnival noises. Featuring the raucous vocals and fierce harp playing of Ernie Locke, this trio delivers a one of a kind stage show!
