Funk powerhouse Turkuaz is marking the summer solstice by sharing a new live video of their song “Percy Thrills, The Moondog”, orginailly off of the band’s latest full-length release ‘Digitinonium’. The performance comes from their December 30, 2017 concert at College Street Music Hall in New Haven, CT, a show that helped encapsulate a mighty touring year for the band including live debuts at Red Rocks, Bonnaroo, and more.
The the video comes as the vibrant 9 piece outfit steps into an exciting festival season that began this last weekend with a late night performance at Mountain Jam in Hunter, NY. On deck is two weekends at Electric Forest, two nights at High Sierra Music Festival, and Levitate Music & Arts Festival. The band will also make appearances at Peach Music Festival, Werk Out Festival, Telluride Jazz Festival, Lock’n, Suwanee Hulwaeen, Jam Cruise, and more. In September, the group returns to Red Rocks Amphitheatre opening for Greensky Bluegrass.
They’ve become one of Brooklyn’s freshest exports - nine charismatic men and women brightly outfitted to have their colorful nature match their expressive voice.
Turkuaz is a rock band at its core that blends soulful sounds with potent funk grooves. Since hitting the road in 2012, Turkuaz have released a handful of albums, canvassed the US more times over, and continue to gather devoted listeners along the way. A quickly addictive pulse coupled with a reputation for their trademark “Powerfunk” sound has earned steadily growing attention across the nation.
Drawing from the conventions that have ignited their existence and using that spark to forge its own sword, Turkuaz is a band that will make anyone move to their familiar beat, yet stay intrigued by an ability to explore its own complex character comprised of nine striking personalities.
