BA of the Week: Promoter KC Turner
Every week we feature a different person from the community shedding a little light on their life of brokeitude. Who knows, maybe you’ll learn something about the human spirit — probably not.
Wanna be a Broke-Ass of the Week? Holler at us here and we’ll send you the questionnaire.
When I asked KC to provide a little info about himself for the intro this is what he send on:
Residing in San Francisco, CA.- KC Turner keeps busy by presenting live music throughout the San Francisco Bay Area; billing shows at venues & coffee houses, producing his own house concert series, hosting 2 open mics, representing & booking a handful of independent artists including Megan Slankard, The Welcome Matt & The Courtney Janes, helping connect people to new local talent, heading a songwriting club and strumming a few of his own songs from time to time. KC is genuine and focuses on 1 simple goal when producing his events…he showcases music that to him is above par and simply great. The goal is to establish a name, (KC Turner Presents), that people know they can trust and associate with good quality music worth taking a “risk” on.
