Turkuaz is the full funk package, an authentic show full of catchy tunes, extra fat horn licks, super vocals and full on choreographed dancing. The band is always high energy and the Saturday night Athens, GA fed off it all night as people were movin’ and groovin’ start to finish. The band has a solid repertoire and moves fast to go through a set of 19 songs:
Each of the Brooklyn-based group’s songs is catchy in its own right but the live shows always raise the adrenaline level particularly by allowing each member in turn to stretch and take solos where they can show their chops.
Particular shout outs go to Sammi and Shira when they step into the spotlight.
The group feeds off the energy of the audience kicked it up an extra notch on this chilly Athens night.
