Turkuaz:

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.

The group’s constant coast-to-coast touring since 2012 has earned them a passionate and dedicated national fan base that’s consistently growing. A dance band at their roots, Turkuaz’s live shows are high-energy, floor-shaking, visually appealing events filled with colorful clothing and choreographed dance moves that always leave attendees wanting more.

Turkuaz’s crossover appeal has never been more evident-- from a recent video performance going viral and receiving over 2 million Facebook views, to their music providing the soundtrack to New York Knicks games at Madison Square Garden, to constant rotation on Sirius XM Radio, Turkuaz is, as Relix Magazine says, “on the verge.”

Thunder Body: Thunder Body is analog roots reggae, futuristic gospel, and psychedelic madness. Thunder Body is an adventure in sound, a sweet soul experience. There is no other band like Thunder Body. 

Thunder Body consists of Matthew O’Brian (former lead singer and guitar player in Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad), playing drums and singing, Rachel Orke (former GPGDS) on analog keyboards and melodica, Dennis Mariano and Sam Snyder on guitar, Jeremiah Pacheco on bass, and Brian Blatt on “Science”. Thunder Body is a timeless new direction in music. 

Formed in spring 2010, Thunder Body has shared the stage with Third World, Ozomatli, John Brown’s Body, Rubblebucket and many others. The band offers a self-titled 5 song EP, with a full-length studio recording to be released in the fall. In July, Thunder Body will embark on a journey out to the West Coast, ending with the Poudre Valley Reggae Festival in direct support of the Wailers.

“This was some of the most tripped-out reggae I've ever heard. It was so slow & gooey that it kind of felt like a 'chopped & screwed' version of classic island tunes… a true force of reggae…[Brian Blatt] brought the perfect amount of psychedelic weirdness and pushed this band into a realm that not many bands occupy.” - Chicago Jam Scene
