Wild Turkeys is a five-piece classic rock band from Salinas, CA. The members are Rob Hallatt (guitar, vocals), Matt Brem (guitar, vocals), James Mills (lead vocals), Joe Silverie (drums), Jon McClean (bass, vocals). We play mostly classic rock covers but have a few originals influenced by bluesy rock. Covers include songs by Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Rolling Stones, The Black Crowes, John Mellencamp, Tom Petty and Dwight Yoakam, among others.
Wild Turkeys have had the privilege of opening for REO Speedwagon and Berlin.
We have hired the Wild Turkeys several time at our tasting room in Carmel Valley, and every time, without exception, they have rocked the house! Our clients always enjoy them, and always seem to comment on their performance being one of the best. If you have not seen them, or if you are looking for a great band for an event, you MUST see the Turkeys!
I've been a concert promoter for 13 years. I've booked 100s of bands over the years, some of the biggest rock bands in the world. I have used these guys many times for various events. You want a solid act that delivers, this is the band. James and his crew of Turkey's are always a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend
The musicians that comprise Wild Turkeys have become a significant brand partner with The Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance. They have given their time and talent to thank our over 1000 volunteers each year in late August at a private function. Their genre expertise and musical talent is quite extensive and their personalities are truly Rock Star without the ego's. We are blessed to have these fine gentlemen at our side and look forward to another banner performance on the 28th of August!!
The Wild Turkeys played at my son's wedding and I have been to many of their gigs over the years. They are very, very good at what they do. Not only are they excellent musicians but they are consummate entertainers.
From their vocals to the guitar riffs the music will get the most reluctant dancer on his(er my) feet.
Come check out their next gig you won't regret it.
The Wild Turkeys have played here for many years, they have had a couple of changes in line up over the years but all very accomplished, polished musicians and vocalists, as well as being nice guys, easy to work with and the crowds love them, they also bring a large following that is very important here, I try and book them for all our big nights.
