About The Band:
Mechanical Turk is a true Silicon Valley story — formed by 4 musicians with a variety of backgrounds in engineering. They shared the impulse of bringing some of the finest tunes of turkish pop-rock to the West Coast.

Sonat Karakaş, former drummer of Celloband, the official band for Turkcell, meets with Can Yücel and Utku Küçük – two veterans of Sabanci University Rock Choir and together they decide to follow their dream to bring a taste of homeland to California. They are then joined by another Rock Choir veteran from Bogazici University this time, Kaan Tarıman – a musician who released his solo album hitting the charts couple of years ago.

The four love making music together and they’re very excited to share it with the audience soon. Come and join us to have a great time!

Mechanical Turk Description:
The Turk, also known as the Mechanical Turk or Automaton Chess Player was a fake chess-playing machine constructed in the late 18th century. From 1770 until its destruction by fire in 1854 it was exhibited by various owners as an automaton, though it was exposed in the early 1820s as an elaborate hoax. More info:
