Nine-piece funk outfit Turkuaz has announced a 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 encompasses a Turkuaz live performance from late 2018.
“None’s A Ton is our first time truly capturing the Turkuaz show experience in a live concert film,” explained Turkuaz frontman, Dave Brandwein, who also co-directed and is credited as an Executive Producer on the film. “It’s something we’ve dreamed of doing for a long time and finally, it has arrived. This film is sort of a ‘best of’ of our favorite moments that have developed on stage over the last five years of non-stop, coast-to-coast touring.”
Brandwein added, “We feel it’s the next best thing to being at a Turkuaz show (and maybe, it’s even better if you have your feet up with a bowl of popcorn!) We want you to feel the raw energy, the sweat and the excitement, but from the comfort of your own home, smartphone, or however, you choose to enjoy it.”
