Turkuaz Enter the Kuadrochrome Era in Fairfield, CT
Colorful Brooklyn-based 9 piece funk machine Turkuaz, kicked off their latest tour Thursday night with a sold out show at the Warehouse in Fairfield, Connecticut. Fresh off the release of a new 4 song EP, Kuadrochrome, something was noticeably different as the band took to the stage at around 10pm. Collectively feeling it was time for a change, Turkuaz used the tour kickoff to unveil a brand new look. Shedding the bands once signature color-coded suits they’ve been sporting for years, the latest incarnation now sees the band dressed in a more formal, classic color motif of black and white and tan…Kuadrochrome.
After an opening set from the Philadelphia experimental trio Great Time, fans who packed the Warehouse were was buzzing with energy as the headliners eagerly took the stage. While the Turkuaz ‘look’ may have changed, their on stage performance remains as strong and as tight as ever. With a career spanning, high energy mix of old songs, covers and new tunes, the band charged ahead into their new era with confidence, skill and class. Notable highlights from the 2 hour set include takes on The Mountain, Mister Man, Take Em Down, Better Get Ready, The Ballad of Castor Troy and covers of the Talking Heads’ Big Business and John Lennon’s Jealous Guy. From opener to encore, the band had total command of the crowd and proved once again why they should be considered once of the top live acts going today.
The Turkuaz tour now rolls on for a series of dates in the mid-west before wrapping up the year with a three night Colorado run, concluding with the bands annual celebration, The Ball Drop. For more information, head to the bands website.
