Jennifer Turner

Singer and founder, Jennifer Turner, grew up in the Theatre – watching, performing, singing, directing, building sets, and costuming. As a youth, she acted in TV commercials, sang and danced her way through show choirs, many musicals, and a few fun holiday variety shows. Jennifer has performed in jazz ensembles and has been the proud lead singer and founding member of Arizona’s "Four Jacks and a Jill" as well as "Swain's World". Motivating people to get up and dance has been a great joy! JT Caravan Entertainment LLC has been a new adventure into the business world as sole owner. Not only does the entertainment company promote JT’s Caravan, but it also promotes sister band Hippie Gold Tribute Band as well as the smash Free Range Chicks! JTC is always open to assisting further talent.

Jennifer has learned a great not-so-secret secret: the Phoenix area is surrounded by a vast, empty desert, but the live music scene is abundant and fruitful!!!

Billy C

Billy C, a core member and a magician on the keyboards, has been involved in various music projects and bands in Phoenix since the 70’s. His music preferences are classic rock, jazz, and of course any band with a great horn section. His primary influences are Chicago, Earth, Wind & Fire, Beatles, Elton John, Bruce Hornsby, Doobie Brothers, and anything Motown. Billy C utilizes his keyboard experience to execute those often forgotten sounds that can bring the song front and center in a performance. The featured sounds include grand piano, B3 organ, horn section, strings, and many more. 


Billy C has also founded Hippie Gold Tribute Band which has made a huge impact in the local area. HGTB is a dedication to a decade of hits from 1965 to 1975.


He is, as fans have pointed out, the icing on the cake.
