About The Turnpikes – professional folk & roaming band based in Amalfi, Italy

The Turnpikes is a four-piece folk roaming band based in the picturesque town of Amalfi, Italy.

With their soulful harmonies and dynamic instrumentation, they have been captivating audiences in the wedding and entertainment industry for several years.

The band consists of a guitarist/vocalist, a violinist, a cajonist/backing vocalist, and a bass ukulele/accordionist.

The song list includes Italian and international rock, folk, and pop music by artists such as The Beatles, Sting, Coldplay, Oasis, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Bob Marley, Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie, and up to pure 50s rock & roll mixed with classic Neapolitan tradition songs revisited with a folk sound.

"The Turnpikes were the highlight of our wedding. They had such vibrant energy and worked the crowd so well. Everyone was coming up to us and saying how they couldn't believe how packed the dance floor was at all times! Many of our engaged friends have also asked for the details of the band to consider for their weddings. I would 100% hire this band again for ANY function. Thank you so much to them for being so excellent."

"The Turnpikes were professional and competent from the first contact, they were able to fulfil our every musical desire, from the religious ceremony to the dinner. True artists, able to amaze us and our guests with pieces performed to perfection. Well, if we were to remarry again, we would only ever choose them!"

"The Turnpikes are a great group. They knew how to create the right environment at every moment of our wedding by playing cheerful pieces to create light-heartedness in the guests, romantic pieces for the newlyweds, and overwhelming pieces to dance and sing all together. They are close-knit and smart in choosing what to play based on the moment. Also during the organisation, they were very helpful in everything. Super good!”"
