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."
Organ Freeman - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Like many bands comprised of tight-laced musicianship, Organ Freeman emerged from the Hollywood music scene wasting no time. There's this undeniable synergy that takes hold when you put on the Organ Freeman debut album. From one funk groove to the next, it's a toe-tapping odyssey from start to finish. The band's influences belie their sound, as they cite the tightest of groovers. James Brown, Soulive, Snarky Puppy, Stevie Wonder, Herbie Hancock, Jimmy Smith, D'Angelo are all mentioned at the drop of a hat, showcasing this band's pure devotion to that in-the-pocket jam.

The future is bright for Organ Freeman, as they continue to turn heads in a big way. As more artists and fans take note of the band's style, there's no limit to their potential.
