Earl Turner

Act Information

Biography

Earl Turner is an entertainer in every sense of the word.  From the cut of his suits to the clarity of his voice, explosive dancing to soulful guitar playing, he has owned the spotlight in showrooms from the Las Vegas Strip all the way to the heart of New Orleans.

With roots in small-town Missouri, he played his first gig at an American Legion hall at age 13 and was touring with a Chicago show band called the Earl White Revue by the time he was 19. Fronting his own band from the early ’80s on, music took Earl to nightclubs and hotel-casino stages across the country, and one of his original dance tracks—“Love Caught You By Surprise”—hit the Top 40 charts in Europe.

From the start, audiences and critics loved Earl’s act; an act made up, he says, “of songs that people can relate to, songs of any genre, I really like music that’s fun.” One critic wrote, “Earl Turner Live is an evening that you should not miss.”  Another noted, “More than anything else, Turner wins over the crowd by working hard”.  He has performed at many major hotel/casinos across the country.  In a recent performance he was billed as ‘Las Vegas’ Most Electrifying Performer.’  Earl has received numerous awards, including the Las Vegas Review Journal’s ‘Male Vocalist of the Year’ award.

Traveling the world as a headliner for Royal Caribbean International, Earl still takes time to perform in Las Vegas, the city he calls home. “This man is the real deal, every time out,” raves award-winning Las Vegas Sun Editor at Large John Katsilometes, calling Earl “one of the truly amazing live performers in Las Vegas.”

And he has cultivated a songbook covering popular artists ranging from Sam Cooke and James Brown to Bruno Mars and Jason Mraz. This is music that inspires and electrifies, and Earl gets to the core of it by pouring his soul out on stage every night, every note. That dedication landed him in the New Orleans Music Hall of Fame, in a city where he headlined in a showroom named for him at Harrah’s Hotel and Casino.

When he isn’t spending time with his wife Christine and other family and friends, he’s working on an album of original songs produced by his son, Aaron.  The release is scheduled for spring of 2019.
