They’ve become one of Brooklyn’s freshest exports – nine charismatic men and women brightly outfitted to have their colorful nature match their expressive voice.

Energetic splashes of funk, alternative, rock, R&B, and psychedelia color the music of Turkuaz. Balancing male-female harmonies, strutting guitars, wild horn arrangements, and interminable grooves, this spirit takes shape in the color donned by each respective member on stage nightly via larger-than-life performances.

Yesterday, powerhouse nonet Turkuaz debuted their brand new video for "Superstatic" exclusively on Facebook. The song comes from last year's studio record, Life In The City, and was shot in the band's hometown of Brooklyn, NY at the borough's famed venue, Brooklyn Bowl.

Last night, Turkuaz debuted a bluegrass-inspired version of "Life In The City," a single from last year's album of the same name. It was recorded during a recent Sugarshack Session in Miami: https://youtu.be/DyHKjQsqk2E

This past Saturday, the Williamsburg area in downtown New York City returned with one of its most anticipated musical events of the year, Brooklyn Comes Alive. Across three music venues, The Brooklyn Bowl, Rough Trade, and Music Hall of Williamsburg, over fifty musicians jammed, sang, and tributed together in fifteen sets of unique, supergroup type fashion.

Attention Turkuaz Nation! On Friday, September 7, we will be performing and FILMING a very special concert at the Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg, PA.  This evening with the band will feature TWO sets of Turkuaz including classic favorites, as well as new material!  You do not want to miss this! 

Once again, paths to music, wonder, and joyful celebration converged in early July at the four-day High Sierra Music Festival in the small mountain town of Quincy, California, where the elevation is twice the number of the population. Headlined by Sturgill Simpson, The String Cheese Incident, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Grace Potter, George Porter Jr., Melvin Seals and more, this was the 28th High Sierra Fest. and the 20th at the county fairgrounds in Quincy.

It was great to learn that The Trey Anastasio Trio, as listed on the schedule, was actually playing as a quartet, given that Ray Paczkowski had just returned to his keyboard the night before, after recovering from a health issue. That may have been Trey’s first real interaction with the crowd, there before the encore, where he played two solo songs with his acoustic, including a lovely “Waste,” before bringing his bandmates back for a third together. I did love how he phrased it, the news about Ray being better, genuinely thrilled to share “some good news in what seems like a world of bad news.”

Funk powerhouse Turkuaz is marking the summer solstice by sharing a new live video of their song “Percy Thrills, The Moondog”, orginailly off of the band’s latest full-length release ‘Digitinonium’.  The performance comes from their December 30, 2017 concert at College Street Music Hall in New Haven, CT, a show that helped encapsulate a mighty touring year for the band including live debuts at Red Rocks, Bonnaroo, and more.

Fresh off the heels of their inaugural Camp Greensky Music Festival in Michigan, today Greensky Bluegrass dropped the details for their two-leg, nationwide fall tour.
