Hailing from the hip and happening Brooklyn borough of New York, Turkuaz is a simply indescribable music act that dips into a variety of genres from afro-pop and classic rock to psychedelic pop and gospel. The band's current lineup features nine boundary pushing and innovative performers, including guitar and vocalist Dave Brandwein, Bass slapper Taylor Shell, keyboarding guitarist Craig Brodhead, percussion master Michelangelo Carubba, trumpeteer and keyboardist Chris Brouwers, Tenor Sax Greg Sanderson, Bari Sax and vocalist Josh Schwartz, female vocals Shira Elias, and tambourine playing vocalizer Sammi Garett.
Turkuaz has been building up one of the most formidable live reputations the world over, with a near constant and frenzied tour schedule that consistently keeps the band on their feet as they roam all across North America delivering feel good live performances to thousands of screaming fans every night. Turkuaz' rapidly rising tour profile has seen them make the Gathering of the Vibes Music Festival, a legendary and larger than life three day music festival event that invites the best of the best of modern music performers. Turkuaz will be making their ascension to the big leagues as they make their way to Bridgeport's Seaside Park, where they'll be sharing the stage with legendary acts such as Wilco, Ben Harper, The String Cheese Incident, Weezer, Gregg Allman, Billy and the Kids, and many many more.
The band's most recent release is 2014's Future 86, a tome of musical perfection that featured the full and current Turkuaz lineup as well as special guests in the study such as Jim Bertini, Lucas Chin, and David Afonso. The album would be produced primarily by Turkuaz frontman Dave Brandwein, and features artwork from visionary new wave artist Frank Romeo. The album features a slew of non stop feel good hits, including "Bubba Slide", "Tired of Talkin'", "Club Foot", and "T.V.", with each and every hit a venerable fan favorite track that gets the entire audience on their feet and funking along.
