Yesterday witnessed the first day of the first ever North Beach Music Festival, taking place at North Beach Bandshell in Miami, Florida. The day saw performances from some local acts like The Heavy Pets, and then later on saw headlining sets from the likes of The Motet, Karina Rykman, and Pigeons Playing Ping Pong.

With just one month to go, North Beach Music Festival has shared yet another special collaboration. Today, the North Beach Music Festival is pleased to announce that Jennifer Hartswick, Shira Elias & String Cheese Incident's Jason Hann will join The Motet for a special collaborative set. Tickets are on sale now.

I drove down to Live Oak, Florida the Thursday before last with a close friend, for what was their third Hulaween experience and my very first one. My friend cautioned me at one point: “I wouldn’t tell people this is your first Hulaween.” That made sense at the time, considering much of Hulaween’s attendance were probably loyal returning patrons, who were in the know about what this place and weekend are like (and there’s something to be said for that). But now looking back, I think: why not?

Turkuaz's two-night "Halloween Festivity Nightmare" hometown run at New York City's Webster Hall, the funk nonet has released its first single of 2021, the funky, fright-filled track, "Shakin' In My Sheets." The back-to-back nights at the newly renovated venue promise spooky surprises, including the live debut of the new track and plenty of unreleased material.

Listen to "Shakin' In My Sheets" everywhere now: orcd.co/shakininmysheets.

After COVID-19 derailed live music for over a year, Turkuaz is thrilled to announce their safe, triumphant return to the road with a 2021 fall tour across the U.S. Special guests Thumpasaurus will offer support on many of the dates.

In a rare departure from their usual sound, nine-piece funk band Turkuaz deconstructed six songs from their catalog for a live acoustic EP, recorded at Sugarshack Sessions in Miami, Florida. The EP boasts six Turkuaz tracks cast in a whole new light, including fan-favorites like "European Festivity Nightmare" and "Life In The City," plus the classic "Tiptoe Through the Crypto" and deep cut "Desert Island."
