Turtle Valley Band


Turtle Valley has been rockin’ the Valley for 17 years. We play 65 years of rock, and some country too!

  • On drums and lead vocals, Alfie Huston
  • On keys, guitars, harps, and vocals, Joan Southworth
  • On bass, Bill Lockie, a local jazz legend, who has also performed with Terry Jacks and the Chessmen and has opened for The Beach Boys
  • On guitar, another member of the local jazz scene, Jake McIntire-Paul
  • On sax, Cranbrook musician Larry Dureski

We have hundreds of songs at our fingertips and can play music of the 50s: Dion and Elvis, 60s: Beatles, Beach Boys, and Orbison, 70s: Creedence, Eagles, and Van Morrison, 80s: Supertramp to Willie Nelson, 90s: Garth Brooks to Blue Rodeo. The current millennium is not neglected either: Viva La Vida (Coldplay), Shallow (Lady Gaga), One Call Away (Charlie Puth), 10,000 Hours (Justin Bieber), and we’re always learning new ones!

We combine all these elements in a tight, high energy show, bringing audiences the soundtrack of their lives, no matter what their generation. We are known for our harmonies, and all of our sound is 100% live and real.

We specialize in outdoor venues, and have been an audience favourite at Armstrong’s Music In the Park for over a dozen years. Rhonda or Patti can attest to both our work ethic and entertainment value at: [email protected]
