Turkuaz - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
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 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.”
Mister Tie Dye - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Mister Tie Dye
Mister Tie Dye, based in Athens, GA, originated as a jazz sextet assembled to perform an original composition by José Moran. After José showed that tune to Chandler Greer, they had the idea to expand and form a larger and more experimental ensemble. The iteration of Mister Tie Dye that exists today is as a nine-piece ensemble including six horns (alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, two trumpets, tenor trombone, and bass trombone) and rhythm section (keyboard and synthesizer, electric bass, and drums). The group performs a repertoire of music that spans over several musical genres, influenced by artists and composers such as OutKast, Snarky Puppy, The Funky Knuckles, Erykah Badu, J.S. Bach, Claude Debussy, Robert Glasper, and more.
