Turbo Street Funk, the "funkiest busking band this side of the border!"

Welcome!
We are Turbo Street Funk, a six-piece horn band from Toronto, ON that bring our grooving originals and happenin' covers to audiences far and wide! Our music has been featured on JazzFM.91, CBC Radio 1's "Here and Now," "Metro Morning," "Fresh Air," and "Big City, Small World," as well as campus radio stations across Ontario. 

Produced by "Shuffle Demon" George Koller, our debut album, “To The Street,” features seven original tracks and three highly demanded covers from our expansive repertoire that we developed as professional buskers on the streets of Toronto.

"These guys are exuberant, highly entertaining and loads of fun. You don’t want to miss them." - Mariposa Folk Festival

We Played Koerner Hall! 

Last night, we performed live at Koerner Hall in Toronto. We started as buskers, working the sidewalks of Toronto four days a week to pay our tuition, and now, we're here, playing on stage at Koerner Hall and finalizing the details for a summer tour packed with festival and event dates across Ontario.

Thank you to everyone who helped us get here. We couldn't have done it without you. 
 

Hearing ourselves on CBC Radio for the first time!
