This is my Toronto
About This Show
Welcome to This is my Toronto, the podcast where your host, Jeff McCartney showcases our great city by focusing on the incredible and talented work of local entrepreneurs, entertainers and historians.
Once a week, Jeff will interview a member of our city who is contributing to "bringing it to life". The show will run approximately 40-50 minutes, or about the length of your commute time or perhaps the time you take working out or getting your “steps” in.
The show's mantra is simple: Don't let it get stuffy in here Toronto. Let's keep the roof open!!

TMT018 - Casey Van, Turbo Street Funk
My guest today is lead singer and guitarist Casey Van from the band Turbo Street Funk. This New Orleans inspired Brass Rock Band started out here in Toronto busking at Queen and Spadina back in 2011. In 2014, a chance meeting with one of their idols allowed them to record their very first record entitled “To The Street” and they’ve been continuing to build their name and reputation ever since. Today, we talk about the band, their influences, what the future holds and who that “chance” meeting was with back in 2014. Before we get started, I’d like to make a request. If you’ve never done so, I would really appreciate it if you would take 5 seconds to leave a rating on iTunes, and if you want to take the additional time to write a comment, that would be great too.
