Turkuaz is an 11-headed monster that will make you dance!


Turkuaz is comprised of Brooklyn's funkiest and brightest. The two founding members, Taylor Shell and Dave Brandwein, met at Berklee College of Music in Boston. Joined by musicians from all over the country, they are now kicking things into high gear with their 11-piece high energy funk band. Influences range from the Talking Heads to James Brown - P-funk to Jamiroquai - creating a show which is an eclectic mix of funk influences and sounds from all over the board. The end result is a good time to say the very least. Turkuaz is certainly more than your average funk band, bringing catchy vocal hooks and raw grooves to the table. When the group takes their party to the stage it certainly is a spectacle to be remembered.
