The Brooklyn-based funk army known as Turkuaz “is like tossing a lit match into a dumpster full of fireworks” (bestnewbands.com).
Their stage show combines influences from Sly and the Family Stone to Talking Heads into an explosive auditory and visual circus, a full-frontal assault on the senses. After multiple residencies at NYC’s Brooklyn Bowl, two blowout performances at Bear Creek Music Festival, and tours spanning the east and west coasts, Turkuaz has developed a reputation from NYC to San Francisco as the band that plays louder, faster, and harder than all the rest.
Originally from the San Francisco Bay, Weather began mixing and manipulating vinyl back in ’99 with a very modest mixer and two Technics 1200 turntables. He quickly established himself within the bay area’s North Bay Collective as a soulful house and broken beat DJ.
Moving to Portland in ’02, Weather began to expand his style, no longer satisfied with the predictable drum repetition found in EDM. He challenged himself to learn any genre he could get his hands on, quickly developing his own style, not confined by genre, yet somehow consistent under the moniker “all things funky”. Whether playing original soul 45’s or the newest joints hot off the production table, Weather’s music is just that. Funky.
