Artists & Events Coming Soon
HOTEL TURKEY SONG FESTIVAL – SEPTEMBER 15, 16 & 17
We are so excited to #officially announce the dates for the 2nd Hotel Turkey Song Festival September 15th, 16th, & 17th. Along with just a teaser of the line up that awaits you.
Last year the Hotel Turkey Song Festival was one of the most magical weekends of 2022 and we truly can not wait for this collaborative effort to return to Turkey, Texas in 2023. The Hotel Turkey Song Festival embodies everything that we believe in when it comes to music, friendship, collaboration and creating magic to share with the world. Alongside the Old Sheep Dog Group, we have created an event that celebrates the song, highlights the songwriter and focuses on the listeners experience with the songs and those who create them.
Starting with the swell of music on Friday with artists that embody the working singer-songwriter and ending with a wide open guitar pull on BBQ Sunday, each day will feature a fresh perspective of songs and stories that can not be found anywhere else.
At the Hotel Turkey Song Festival the walls writer and listener fall away to leave just the feeling that a particular song creates. So if you join us one night or every night, we hope you make plans and #followmetoturkeytx for the Hotel Turkey Song Festival.

JESSE DANIEL AT HOTEL TURKEY
We could not be more thrilled to welcome Jesse Daniel to the Hotel Turkey for the first time! This is one of those shows you will want to say you were there… So don’t wait! Get your tickets or table reservation today!!Jesse Daniel | November 18th | 7pmIt is no secret that Jesse Daniel puts on one hell of a live show. With his top notch band, he’s been touring the country for years and earning fans the old fashioned way; with honest songs played well. The California native is blazing the trail for a new wave of traditional artists, bringing his hard core country music to stages all over the US. There are many making traditional country music in modern times, but there is no one making it like Daniel. His sound is uniquely his own, while rooted in the tradition of his Bakersfield heroes like Merle Haggard and Buck Owens. This one-of-a-kind sound has earned Jesse a place at the table among the best of the country music world and has garnered the support of his contemporaries and fans alike. Over the past few years, he and his band have toured and shared stages with artists like Colter Wall, Tyler Childers, Sierra Ferrell, Charley Crockett, American Aquarium, Turnpike Troubadours, Shane Smith, Mike and the Moonpies, Raul Malo and many others. Jesse’s touring schedule has taken him and his band over 50,000 miles in 2022 alone and this year they aim to surpass that by a longshot. Touring this extensively can be tough on a band, but it has proven to be what truly makes a band great. There is nothing that will make a group tighter than grinding it out on the road, night after night, club after club. That is why Jesse and his songwriting partner, fellow band member, manager and fiance Jodi Lyford decided it was time to make a live album. “My Kind Of Country Live at The Catalyst ” was recorded in front of a sold out crowd at Santa Cruz, CA’s biggest live music venue. It’s the only album made at The Catalyst since Neil Young & Crazy Horse recorded “Touch The Night – Santa Cruz 1984” on the same stage. This was a monumental achievement for Daniel, considering he used to work as a stage hand and security at the venue years ago. He played his first ever show at the tiny upstairs bar and spent years battling addiction on the very street that The Catalyst resides. “The Catalyst was kind of as big as it gets in my world. I grew up there, going to shows, playing shows on their smaller stages. To headline the main stage, let alone sell it out and make a record there, is a huge accomplishment for me and I’m forever grateful to my Santa Cruz County friends, fans and family for supporting what we do.” said Daniel. What better way to thank the community that raised and supported you than to make a live album with them.This recording includes songs from all three of Daniel’s studio albums – Jesse Daniel (2018), Rollin’ On (2020) and Beyond These Walls (2021), as well as his own hometown rendition of Homer Joy’s country classic “Streets Of Bakersfield”, made famous by Dwight Yoakam and Buck Owens. When the band breaks down you can hear every soul in the room shouting, singing along and celebrating the phrase that they themselves coined – “My Kind Of Country”. This captured live performance showcases Daniel and his band’s live energy and transports you directly to that place in time, as if you were there for it all.
TONY KAMEL AT HOTEL TURKEY – SATURDAY DEC 2
We are so excited to welcome to the Hotel Turkey for the first time, Tony Kamel. This will be a one of kind, special night.
Tony Kamel is a GRAMMY nominated singer/songwriter who’s shows, both solo and w/ a full band, showcase his versatility as a multi-instrumentalist and compelling story teller – going off the cuff and engaging with the audience for a night of entertainment beyond some dude simply singing his songs. Whether it’s a raucous festival crowd, or a listening room, he finds a way to sync up with the folks he’s in the room with. But really, it’s all about the songs. For that he teamed up with legendary Texas songwriter Bruce Robison and his analog focused production company (The Next Waltz) for his debut solo record of original tunes, “Back Down Home” – which held the #1 spot on the Alt. Country Charts for three weeks, and continues to rise on the Americana Charts. If he’s not on your radar now, he will be soon.
THE DROPTINES AT HOTEL TURKEY – SATURDAY DEC 9
One of the most exciting bands in Texas right now, you will not want to miss this show at Hotel Turkey with the Droptines! We plan to pack out the Back Patio and have a night to remember!
The Droptines are an alternative country band born in Concan, Texas. Established in 2019 by frontman/songwriter/musician, Conner Arthur, also known as “The King of Concan”. This band puts in the work taking none of the traditional or convenient routes when crafting songs.
Blending a multitude of genres, while tethering each song together with a specific vernacular native to the Texas Hill Country, results in a broad range of authentic, versatile melodies.
Add Conner’s rich voice and layered lyrics, and you have storytelling at its finest. From biblical themes, raunchy truths, and primitive questions to one’s existence, it is clear, Shakespeare has made his way to the trailer park.
From the hard-hitting anthem “New Girl” to the heart wrenching melody “As Your Heart Breaks” to the opulent masterpiece “Raining Where You Are”, combined with an down to earth yet captivating stage presence, this band takes you on quite the ride.
These guys have enjoyed sharing a stage with many popular artists including Red Shahan, Jamestown Revival and Zach Bryan.
They have recorded 3 EP’s and multiple singles that can be found on Spotify and Apple Music.
Tickets are $15 with table reservations available at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/700326654877
