Brooklyn's Turkuaz has been bringing their nine-piece party music across the country all year and are on a break for two weeks before continuing a national run that ends on New Years Eve in Baltimore. Today, they announce a Winter 2018 headlining tour that starts in Detroit on January 9, crossing the country to end in with two shows with Galactic in Los Angeles on March 30 and San Francisco on March 31.
Turkuaz blends soulful sounds with potent funk grooves and has become one of Brooklyn’s freshest exports - nine charismatic men and women brightly outfitted to have their colorful nature match their expressive voice. Today they release “On The Run”, a scalding dance track produced by Jerry Harrison of Talking Heads, ahead of the next leg of the band’s national tour.
As the end of 2017 nears, Turkuaz is thrilled to announce The Ball Drop, their annual New Year’s Eve celebration. This year’s event will take place in Baltimore, MD at Rams Head Live and also feature Pimps Of Joytime. The celebration will mark the end of a benchmark year for Turkuaz that includes notable debuts throughout the year at Jam Cruise, Red Rocks, Bonnaroo, Wanee Festival and numerous highlight appearances throughout the United States.
