About:
Turkuaz is a 9-piece "powerfunk" army hailing from Brooklyn, NY, whose modern twist on the classic sound has placed them at the forefront of a new funk revolution. Their hooky group vocals and hard-hitting horns have brought dance floors to life across the country. Their vibrant color coordinated outfits and theatrical delivery create a lively visual circus, attesting their liveliness on stage, as well as in the studio.  

With the obvious influences such as Parliament, Sly & The Family Stone, Rick James and Earth, Wind & Fire as a starting point, Turkuaz adds healthy doses of jittery, world-pop-dance grooves. The band is a refreshing update to the funk idiom that, as described by Live For Live Music, "will raise the roof on any given night."

The band has just dropped their full-length album, Digitonium, released earlier this month. The 24-track album has more of a funky 80’s rock feel than their first (Future 86, 2014), and is described by the band as a concept album with its "Dada-esque slurry of words and lyrical imagery.”

Turkuaz's show is not one to miss. Daytrotter recently called the band “a cross between Talking Heads and Jesus.” Currently they are in the midst of a national Fall tour in support of Digitonium. They have hit venues and festivals such as North Coast Music Festival (Chicago, IL), Catskill Chill (Hancock, NY), Higher Ground (Burlington, VT), Brooklyn Bowl (Brooklyn, NY), and Paradise Rock Club (Boston, MA.)
 On Tuesday, November 10 you can catch the band at Zydeco in Birmingham.  

Lots of exciting things are happening in the world of Turkuaz and we'd love for you to come out and experience their funk phenomenon!

"There is a feeling of electricity and explosive color that comes from [Turkuaz's] sharp guitar riffs and horns, and a deep funky synth that brings to mind an 80s dance club"  GLIDE MAGAZINE

“Alongside funk appeal and palpable influences of George Clinton and Sly and the Family Stone, Turkuaz -- who describe the sound as 'Powerfunk' -- adds the catchy pop and groove of Talking Heads and Motown-inspired tunes.”  KDHX

"Turkuaz's rapid ascension to relevance can be aptly compared to how fast and focused they play onstage."
