On the heels of beginning an extensive nationwide Fall Tour with The New Mastersounds, Turkuaz is pleased to announce The Ball Drop, their annual New Years event. The two night event is being brought to Fete Ballroom in Providence on December 30 and 31. Joining the festivities as support will be Moon Hooch on December 30, and Kung Fu and West End Blend on December 31.
Between standout performances at Lock’n Festival, High Sierra Music Festival, Peach Music Festival, and Mountain Jam, and graduating into theater on the regular touring circuit, 2016 has been a landmark year for the 9-piece funk powerhouse.
Turkuaz is a 9-piece “Powerfunk” outfit from Brooklyn, NY, whose modern take on the classic funk sound has steadily ascended them into a mainstay staple for music lovers of all walks of life and all ages. Blending elements of Pop, R&B, and Soul with their distinct aggressive funk core, Turkuaz sounds like the musical love child of Sly & the Family Stone and Talking Heads.
The group’s constant coast-to-coast touring since 2012 has earned them a passionate and dedicated national fan base that’s consistently growing. A dance band at their roots, Turkuaz’s live shows are high-energy, floor-shaking, visually appealing events filled with colorful clothing and choreographed dance moves that always leave attendees wanting more.
