I don’t know about you, but when I’m feeling down, I like to get down…to some serious jams.
With winter gone and summer in sight, there is still a lingering depression that cold weather burns into your brain.
Not saying winter isn’t a time to get funky, but sometimes the chill in the air and the snow on the ground just makes me want to crawl under a rock.
It’s time to shake off those lingering blues with Turkuaz, who are playing at the Rex Theater tonight with Alan Evans Trio.
Turkuaz is a Brooklyn-based 9 piece power-funk band. Their new CD, Future 86, has not been released yet…And I was lucky enough to get a sneak peak.
It starts with a Keller-esque, big band, no fluff, jazzy sound and ends with a sunny, carribean flavor and a touch of what we’re hit with in the beginning.
Fellow ragers and soul seekers, there’s a lot to be excited about. You don’t want to this miss this show.
You can buy your tickets in advance or at the door, which opens at 8PM.
