Brooklyn nine-piece Turkuaz is a musical powerhouse that takes cues from throughout Funk’s history and mashes them together with its own personalized groove and vibe. From Parliament-Funkadelic through Fitz and the Tantrums, with stops in Electro Funk, Disco and AfroBeat, Turkuaz has all the Funk bases covered and then some.
The band was formed about eight years ago while some members were attending Boston’s Berklee College of Music. The group eventually hit the road and began building a following on the Jam Band circuit, drawing praise and earning fans for standout appearances at fests like Gathering of the Vibes and the All Good Music Festival.
