Adding to a buzzworthy maiden showing aboard Jam Cruise and announcements to appear at Bonnaroo, Red Rocks in Colorado with peers Lettuce, and two nights supporting Moe during Jazz Fest week in New Orleans, Turkuaz is thrilled to announce the Spring Leg of their 2017 tour.

The tour will embark through uncharted territory, headlining the Easter Island Festival in Oklahoma and right into Austin, TX for Euphoria Festival alongside Pretty LIghts, Chromeo, The Disco Biscuits, and more.  The run hugs the Southern region making way to Wanee Festival in Live Oak, FL, and ultimately to New Orleans.  Up and coming trio Organ Freeman will serve as support on a number of dates throughout the tour.

Turkuaz is a throng of nine diverse musicians whose sum of all parts take on the classic funk sound has yielded a powerful modern voice that tactfully balances their naturally raw, aggressive nature with the polished Pop sensibilities of R&B Soul. 

Described as the lovechild of Sly & the Family Stone and The Talking Heads with Uncles Prince, Morris Day, and George Clinton popping in throughout their upbringing, Turkuaz’s live shows have developed into a high energy, floor shaking, and visually appealing spectacle filled with colorful clothing and choreographed dance moves that have a penchant for those bearing witness to be plea for more.
