Turkuaz Adds More 2017 Tour Dates August 15, 2017 10:58

Brooklyn, NY -- As an eventful summer rolls on, Turkuaz is enthused to unveil a throng of additional dates to their Fall 2017 Tour.  Consisting of just short of fifty stops and covering ground from coast to coast, the extensive run maintains the band on a busy schedule through December.  In addition to Sinkane, who joins throughout the already announced West Coast leg, other hand picked special guests include Con Brio, The Suffers, & Pimps Of Joytime.  Amidst the many club and theater plays, including a hometown show at the newly opened Brooklyn Steel, are a handful of festival appearances including Whale Rock Music Festival, Joshua Tree Music Festival, LEAF Festival, & Hangtown Music Festival.  The last two dates revealed today lay anticipation towards The Ball Drop, the band’s annual New Year’s event that remains unannounced at the moment.  Special fan pre-sale tickets are available now at www.turkuazband.com ahead of general public on sale this Friday, Aug 18 @ 12pm local time.  

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, playing sounds that blend genuine soul and a potent funk that can’t be forced.  It’s been a quickly addictive pulse and a reputation for a distinct, heavy footed “Powerfunk” that continues to steadily grow their presence.  Since hitting the road hard in 2012, Turkuaz have a released a handful of albums, canvassed the US more times over, and continued to gather devoted listeners along the way.  The band has made impactful appearances at Bonnaroo & Red Rocks, and filled rooms east to west from Terminal 5 in New York to The Fillmore in San Francisco.  Balancing the conventional wisdom that has sparked their flame and using its heat to forge their own sword, Turkuaz is a band that can make anyone appreciate the side that feels familiar, yet remain intrigued by it’s ability to explore its own complex character comprised of nine striking personalities.

Live, Turkuaz is a rock band at the core, yet conjures up sweaty dance parties with the flick of an on-switch, a synchronized dance palette of vibrant colors, and eargasms that deliver pleasing punches one song at a time.  That combination is a spectacle that’s hard to miss and hard to leave feeling anything short of quenched.
