On Saturday, Dec. 9, Brooklyn based band Turkuaz will take the stage at The Vogue for a night of funk and soul. Houston’s The Suffers will bring their blend of soul and rock-and-roll as well. Read on to learn more about both these fantastic live acts:
Representing Brooklyn, New York, this nine-piece band has found a way to add a unique, modern twist on classic funk. With music influenced by classic funk and soul music (Parliament, Rick James), Turkuaz has found a way to bring back an iconic sound that has lost a bit of its presence in the mainstream music industry.
Through a fantastic rhythm section and catchy guitar riffs, this band delivers dance music that will have you on your feet from the first song. Over the past five years, Turkuaz has crafted a stellar live show that’s a direct result of almost non-stop touring and passion for the music they play.
When they’re not on the road, these nine talented musicians are in the studio, crafting funky, fresh music for your ears. Through lots of work and dedication, the band has come up with a unique sound that you can hear on their 2015 EP, “Stereochrome,” as well as their full-length “Digitonium.” No doubt you’ll hear some tunes from these records at The Vogue.

Hailing from Houston, Texas, The Suffers have garnered a following of dedicated fans through hard work, a finely tuned soul sound, and high-energy live performances. This 10-piece band played over 150 shows in 2016, culminating in national exposure through an NPR Tiny Desk Concert as well as performances on “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” and “Jimmy Kimmel.”
This band is clearly thriving, a result of a work ethic unrivaled by most. Since 2011, The Suffers have worked to create a presence in the neo-soul genre, which led to the band’s self-titled debut album, which is available on iTunes and Spotify.
