/// TURKUAZ ///

The Brooklyn-based funk army known as Turkuaz “is like tossing a lit match into a dumpster full of fireworks” (bestnewbands.com). Their stage show combines influences from Sly and the Family Stone to Talking Heads into an explosive auditory and visual circus, a full-frontal assault on the senses. After multiple residencies at NYC’s Brooklyn Bowl, two blowout performances at Bear Creek Music Festival, and tours spanning the east and west coasts, Turkuaz has developed a reputation from NYC to San Francisco as the band that plays louder, faster, and harder than all the rest.

Born as a side project by co-founders Dave Brandwein and Taylor Shell, Turkuaz was formed in Boston in February 2008. Unbeknownst to Dave and Taylor, a demo of theirs had been submitted to Berklee College of Music’s Heavy Rotation Records by a friend. Heavy Rotation immediately added Turkuaz to their annual showcase at the Berklee Performance Center, and the spark was lit. Dave and Taylor formed the current funk monstrosity from amongst their musician friends. Turkuaz’s first show was to 1,000 people at the BPC and was met with rave reviews. After 8 months in the Boston music scene, the band migrated as a whole to Brooklyn, with the intention of bringing their brand of funk to New York.

With two independent album releases, tours up, down and across the country, a solid and ever-growing NYC fanbase, and the desire to only get bigger, Turkuaz keeps on perfecting their brand and continuing their upward trajectory at concerts and festivals across the country.
