Today I’m excited to talk to one of the nine members of Turkuaz, a power funk band based in Brooklyn, NY. In our conversation, Dave Brandwein, singer and guitar player, tells us how the band got together and why he can’t imagine them with any fewer members.
They’ve been described as a cross between Sly & The Family Stone and Talking Heads, and are known for their upbeat, energetic live shows. Listen in for some good stories, like how they got their name, and what they’ll be up to after they visit Portland for the Waterfront Blues Fest this weekend.
At the end of this episode we'll listen to Gettin' a Little Closer, from their Stereochrome EP.
