The Turn-Ups

Covid-19 has wreaked havoc on live entertainment across the country. As Louisiana reopens through the State’s Phase II guidelines, live bands continue to be off the list of “can do” activities. The Turn-Ups, a regular musical staple at Bayou Crawfish has a workaround for friends and fans. On their regular third Saturday night, June 20 at 6 p.m., the Turn-Ups will play a set or two in front of the Sabine Theater/Many Community Center. Folks can get a great meal at the Bayou Crawfish and come outside to take a listen. They encourage social distancing by following the six-foot rule on San Antonio Avenue. Lawn chairs are an option and Sarah at BC can keep you refreshed and hydrated.

The three-piece band will be playing your favorite rock, blues, classic country and original tunes for your listening pleasure. Bassist James Wagley and drummer Robert Rowe started playing music together in the local R&R group, the Frats in 1965. Lead guitar and vocalist, Kenny Cardino was honing his musical skills in Natchitoches about the same time that the Frats had their run from 1965-68. James and Kenny met up again in Shreveport in the early 70s. They began playing and writing together and became the string section along with Donnie Hyams for the infamous Harmon Drew Supergroup up until Harmon’s retirement from the music business in 2019.
