Turbo Suit Will Perform Their Final Set at Electric Forest June 14, 2016 21:46
After four years of heavy touring, including numerous appearances at many of the nation's biggest music festivals, electro funk trio Turbo Suit (formerly known as Cosby Sweater) has announced that they are calling in quits. The trio consists of David Embry (live mixing/vocals/production), Nicholas Gerlach (saxophone/EWI/keys), and Jeff Peterson (drums). In a message posted on the group's Facebook page, Turbo Suit released an official statement explaining that their final performance will come at next weekend's Electric Forest in Rothbury, Michigan. The three-piece has built quite a name for themselves in recent years, touring and supporting many of the biggest acts in the jam/electronic music scene. You may have even seen them joined by the likes of Joel Cummins and Ryan Stasik of Umphrey's McGee on special occasions. We wish the band nothing but the best of luck moving forward.
See below for their official statement via the Turbo Suit Facebook page.
Over the last 4 years, we have had the opportunity to do some amazing things. We started this project with no intentions of ever going as far as we did with our little group. We’ve played countless festivals, venues that we could only dream of playing, and have opened for bands that we’ve looked up to for years. We made lots of friends and fans over the years and are so grateful for all the opportunities that we were given to make you forget about this crazy world we live in, even if for just an hour or two.
Without going on and on and dragging this whole thing out, we would like to announce that next week at Electric Forest will be our last show. So please, let us not be sad that this is ending, but celebrate that it even happened in the first place. Thank you guys so much for letting us do what we do. We love you.
