It’s hard to place Brooklyn-based funk nine-piece Turkuaz. But if you had to, placing them somewhere between a rainbow and a disco ball would be rather fitting. This shimmering prismatic soul, power-funk, rock outfit has more charisma in a single sparkled lapel than most bands have in their entire DNA. An eclectic experiment in fusing nine personalities and with dynamic dance elements, Turkuaz is getting up for a spirited 2018. After releasing their Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads) produced single “On the Run” in October, Turkuaz kicks off their 29-date winter tour here in Detroit, spreading their good vibes across the land.
Turkuaz will perform at El Club on Tuesday, Jan. 9 at 8 p.m., 4114 W. Vernor Hwy., Detroit; 313-279-7382; elclubdetroit.com; Tickets are $15.
