Music fans looking for a non-traditional way to celebrate Easter weekend and the beginning of Passover (April 15-17) this year need look no further than the Sarasota Opera House. But it won't be hearing voluptuous voices singing Madama Butterfly. After a two-year disruption in live music, the annual Rites of Spring Festival (RoSFest), now at its 17th edition, returns to Sarasota with an exciting line-up of acts from past and present to satisfy every taste.

For the first time since its original airing in September 2020, Turkuaz is treating fans to the complete Remain in Light set filmed remotely for Bonnaroo's virtual livestream ROO-ALITY, featuring legendary Talking Heads musicians Jerry Harrison and Adrian Belew, with percussion from Yahuba Garcia-Torres.

Nine-piece funk outfit Turkuaz explores the space between beauty and poison with their new single, "Ophidiophobia" (pronounced oh•fid•e•oh•fo•bia), featuring Jerry Harrison and Adrian Belew of the Talking Heads.

In celebration of Talking Heads' iconic 1980 record, Remain in Light, which peaked at 19 on the Billboard Top 200 upon release, Turkuaz is hitting the road with Talking Heads co-founder, Jerry Harrison, and longtime collaborator and touring guitarist, Adrian Belew, for a handful of dates this summer.

Rock guitar legends Dave Navarro and Billy Morrison assembled a small army of some of their most iconic rock acquaintances for a benefit concert at the Belasco Theater in Los Angeles, April 16. The pair organized the Above Ground concert to raise funds and awareness for MusiCares foundation, which provides support and community services to musicians in need of medical, personal & financial assistance.
