Relix Magazine, one of the most respected music publications around, name Turkuaz the #2 Band not to miss at CMJ! In case you don't know, CMJ stands for College Media Journal, and the CMJ Marathon is kind of like the South By South West of New York. Which band was #1? Why, Soul Rebels Brass Band, the band we opened for in Philly last night! We're super honored and can't wait for our CMJ show this Saturday at Sullivan Hall at 11:30pm!
The videos you've just watched means that Turkuaz's Kickstarter campaign to raise $15,000 in 30 days has officially begun! Kickstarter is a great website that helps creative enterprises raise money organically by offering rewards to their supporters for different levels of contribution. The catch is that if we don't raise at least the $15,000 we've set out to raise in the next 30 days, we don't get ANY of the money that was pledged to us. So we certainly have our work cut out for us! Please click on the link below to go to our Kickstarter page, where you can re-watch the hilarious video, learn what we need the money for (in a nutshell: recording and printing our new CD, buying a big trailer so we can safely and comfortably transport all of us and our gear around the country, and making lots of new merch items) and check out the awesome rewards you'll get for helping us out! No donation is too big or too small, and you only have until 11/2 so (please) don't delay! Thank you!

We're in the Silver Bullet (the band van) on the way to Buffalo and just found this cool preview of our show tonight on a popular Buffalo music blog called buffaBLOG.
Turkuaz plays Soundlab in Buffalo tonight, Black Oak Tavern in Oneonta tomorrow (Friday), and The Club at Water Street in Rochester Saturday.
