New Mastersounds & Turkuaz Are Bringing The Funk To New York City

first_imgWhen it comes to modern funky music, not many are doing it better than Turkuaz and The New Mastersounds. Each band has been road-tested and fan-approved, bringing their big dance party sounds to fans across the country. When these groups share the stage, the energy is seriously through the roof. That’s why we can’t wait for their tour to hit Terminal 5 in New York, NY, on Friday, December 2nd. Tickets can be found here.The pairing between these two bands started last summer, when the bands got together after High Sierra Music Festival for a meeting of the minds at Sharkbite Studios in Oakland, CA. The resulting session saw each band cover a track from the other’s catalog, with their collaborative help, of course. The two tracks they laid down – Turkuaz’s rendition of NMS’s “On The Border” and New Mastersounds’ rendition of  Turkuaz’s “The Rules” – were recently released as the Split 7″ EP.Their tour just kicked off with a few nights in Colorado, including a great show in Boulder, CO that we reviewed here. Each show with these two bands turns the energy up the max, as Turkuaz’s funk army style is matched by the chilled out funky grooves of The New Mastersounds. Expect exciting collaborations and non-stop dancing when these two bands come to town!Be sure to catch Turkuaz and The New Mastersounds in New York City when they come into town on Friday, December 2nd. Tickets are still available here, so don’t miss a beat.Enter to win tickets:[Photo by Dani Brandwein]last_img read more
