To ring in 2022, Turkuaz is pleased to announce the return of their annual Ball Drop bash, this time for back-to-back nights at Infinity Hall in Hartford, CT on December 30th & December 31st, 2021. Artist pre-sale & VIP tickets for this year's Ball Drop double header are on sale now, and the general on-sale begins Friday, July 23rd at 10am EST via the band's website: turkuazband.com/tour.
A limited number of Nightswimmers Special VIP upgrades are also now available.

"Since 2014, we’ve been ringing in the New Year with our annual event, 'The Ball Drop.' It’s always a high-spirited party with family, friends and fans from all over the country celebrating under one roof," says Turkuaz frontman Dave Brandwein. "But this time around it’s even more special. After over a year not being able to tour and share our music with everyone, we’ve never been more thankful for what we get to spend our lives doing."
The halt of live music in 2020 gave Brandwein and the band a renewed sense of gratitude and a burst of new energy. "With no New Year’s Even celebration last year, we felt we needed to double up to make up for lost time. That’s why we’re bringing the Ball Drop back to the Northeast for two nights in Hartford, CT. We cannot wait to count down to 2022 with so many who have been along for this ride from the beginning."
The band rang in 2020 at the Boulder Theater in Boulder, CO and 2019 at The Palladium in Worcester, MA, while 2018 was welcomed at Rams Head Live in Baltimore, MD.
The NYE Ball Drop run joins Turkuaz already-announced tour dates, which include summer & fall dates alongside original Talking Heads members, Jerry Harrison & Adrian Belew, in support of the iconic record, Remain in Light, in addition to a slew of other dates.
