Turkuaz Harnesses Their Funky Side At Cleveland’s House Of Blues [Photo]

first_imgOn Friday night, Brooklyn-based funk powerhouse Turkuaz opened up their New Year’s run at Cleveland, OH’s House Of Blues. Brass-house trio Too Many Zooz handled the evening’s opening duties, as the venue was just shy of a complete sell-out. The trio helped get the packed house dancing and on their feet, setting the tone for the remainder of the funk-fueled evening.The nine-piece funk unit—comprised of Dave Brandwein (guitar, vocals), Taylor Shell (bass), Craig Brodhead (guitar, keys), Michelangelo Carubba (drums), Chris Brouwers (trumpet, keys), Greg Sanderson (tenor sax), Josh Schwartz (baritone sax, vocals), Sammi Garett (vocals), and Shira Elias (vocals)—got the show on the road with “If I Ever Fall Asleep”, before working through fan-favorites “20 Dollar Bill”, “Babies Makin’ Babies”, “Life In The City”, “King Computer”, and many more.Luckily, photographer Dani Brandwein captured some beautiful photos from the show, which you can enjoy below.The technicolor funk masters are gearing up for their New Year’s Eve “The Ball Drop” celebration at Worcester, MA’s recently remodeled venue, The Palladium. Too Many Zooz will once again handle the evening’s opening duties tomorrow, December 31st. Tickets for the show are still on sale and available here.For ticketing information and a full list of Turkuaz’s upcoming tour dates, head to the band’s website.Setlist: Turkuaz | House Of Blues | Cleveland, OH | 12/28/2018Set:If I Ever Fall Asleep, 20 Dollar Bill, Make You Famous, Digitonium, E.Y.E., Babies Makin’ Babies, One & Lonely, Coast to Coast, Life In The City, Lookin’ Tough, Feelin’ Good, Rule The World, Lady Lovely, The Question, Back To NormalEncore: King Computer, Bubba SlideTurkuaz | House Of Blues | Cleveland, OH | 12/28/2018 | Photo: Dani Brandwein Load remaining imageslast_img
