On Tuesday, nine-piece Brooklyn-based funk outfit Turkuaz announced their plans for their annual New Year’s Eve The Ball Drop celebration. To ring in 2020, the band will host a performance at Boulder, CO’s Boulder Theater on December 31st, which will feature support from Swaktins & The Positive Agenda, fronted by Steve Swatkins (Allen Stone). Presented by Live For Live Music, the concert will mark Turkuaz’s debut headlining performance at the Boulder Theater.
Each year since 2014, Turkuaz has celebrated The Ball Drop at various venues around the Northeast. Now, the colorful outfit’s year-end celebration is heading west to Colorado for the very first time.
“Each year, The Ball Drop is a special event for Turkuaz and an amazing opportunity to have all our friends and fans alike under one roof–and this year will be no exception,” Turkuaz frontman Dave Brandwein explained in a press statement. “For the first time, we’re holding the celebration outside of the greater Northeast, we couldn’t think of a better place than Colorado. With our good friend Steve Swatkins joining the bill, this night will certainly be a party to remember!”
A special “Make Your Famous” VIP package for Turkuaz’s Ball Drop bash is available, which includes access to a VIP soundcheck party with hours d’ourves & bar, early entry to the venue, meet & greet with all members of Turkuaz, a signed, limited edition show poster, preferred VIP viewing area, commemorative VIP laminate, and a premium champagne toast at midnight.
A limited number of fan pre-sale tickets along with VIP packages are on sale now. Tickets for Turkuaz’s New Year’s Eve show go on sale this Friday, September 6th at 10 a.m. (MST) here.
Along with the NYE announcement, Turkuaz has released additional tickets to the screening of their new feature film, None’s A Ton, set to premiere for one night only in their hometown of Brooklyn, NY at Prospect Park’s Nitehawk Cinema on Tuesday, September 10th. The film depicts a Turkuaz live performance from late 2018. General admission tickets and VIP upgrades are still available while supplies last here.
