Turkuaz, Brooklyn’s own airtight, super funky band hit Terminal West on Thursday night December 7. When the original opening band cancelled earlier in the day, Turkuaz stepped up to assure the fans a good time by heating up the crowd for two rock solid sets.
The beauty of this band is that they deliver on all fronts, great tunes of deep funk and full show of choreographed singing and dancing thanks to both the girls, Sammi and Shira as well as the boys in the horn section!
The group is polished front to back and right there with the leading funk bands on the circuit today. Taking full measure, I’ve gotta put this one down as one of my favorite shows of 2017 – truly memorable. Check out a couple of their opening tunes right here:
