Turkuaz is a 9-piece “Powerfunk” outfit from Brooklyn, NY, whose modern take on the classic funk sound has established them as leaders in the funk revolution that’s currently taking place in the genre. Blending elements of Pop, R&B, and Soul with their distinct aggressive funk core, Turkuaz sounds like the musical love child of Sly & the Family Stone and Talking Heads.

With the release of their new album "Digitonium," Turkuaz’s sound is more accessible than ever and poised to break out to a more mainstream audience. With a playful feel that evokes the best of 80s dance music, Turkuaz’s tightly arranged songs are built on thick grooves, driven by powerhouse rhythm and horn sections, as well as four distinct vocalists.

Sinkane has always been evolving. With every record they have been able to add a new element to the live show. Now, as a six piece, they are better than ever. The songs are stretched out and really showcase the talent of the group. Amanda Khiri takes lead on "Yacha". The additional lyrics and vocals were written by her as well. Elenna Canlas and Jonny Lam's solos reign supreme through out the jams. And I think it's safe to say that Jason (jaytram) Trammell and Michael Isvara "Ish" Montgomery make it clear that the Sinkane rhythm section is a force to be reckoned with.

Ticket Price: $18 advanced / $20 day of show / $32 reserved seating
