Every Wednesday in September, the Brooklyn based funk group Turkuaz, will perform 4 shows as part of a month-long residency at the Brooklyn Bowl (61 Wythe Avenue in Brooklyn, NY). Details have been revealed as to what bands are performing with Turkuaz throughout the residency as well as the announcement of a pre-show party for the Catskill Chill Music Festival where Turkuaz will be performing from September 6-9 at Camp Minglewood in Hancock, NY ( www.catskillchill.com for tickets and info). Below are the details about the Turkuaz residency. You DON’T want to miss this!
Wednesday, 9/4 “Pre-Chill Bowl”: To prepare to rock out at Catskill Chill Music Festival the following weekend, Turkuaz has invited fellow Chillers Jimkata (song-oriented electro-rock) and Aqueous (genre-melting groove-rock) to play at this pre-party for the Chill. (Ticket Link)
Wednesday, 9/11: Reggae-rock powerhouse Spiritual Rez will be coming down from Boston to share the bill with Turkuaz. These two bands have shared the stage quite a few times and it has never been anything short of raucous.
Wednesday, 9/18: Turkuaz is proud to bring The Heavy Pets back to Brooklyn Bowl! The R&B / jazz-funk / reggae fusion jams of this Florida band are based on solid song craft and meant for dancing.
Wednesday, 9/25 “Mad Dogs Bowl”: To close the residency out with a bang, Turkuaz will recreate the magic of Joe Cocker’s Mad Dogs & Englishmen! Both a legendary tour and live album, Mad Dogs was all about big sound and amazing musicians, so there will be special sit-ins from members of Dopapod (experimental funk-rock) to make it an unforgettable experience. Turkuaz will also perform an original set to celebrate the re-release of their remastered self-titled debut album.
Turkuaz are also offering a special $30 four-night pass.
