Turkuaz to Release a Feature-Length Concert Film


On Tuesday, March 31, the Brooklyn, NY-based funk band Turkuaz will release its feature-length concert film None’s a Ton. The film will be available for rent or purchase via major streaming platforms like iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Xbox and Vimeo on Demand. In addition to the digital film release of None’s a Ton, the entire soundtrack from the film, which was captured live, will be available as a limited-edition deluxe triple vinyl LP.

“After a long wait, we’re thrilled to finally be sharing this with the world,” says Turkuaz frontman and None’s a Ton co-director Dave Brandwein in a press release. “And amidst a chaotic time where live music is basically illegal, it couldn’t be coming at a better time! We swear we didn’t plan this!”

The 100-minute film forever encapsulates the “colors era” of Turkuaz. The movie includes songs from the band’s very first record up until 2018’s Life in the City.

“This film is the culmination of six years of live touring, boiled down into a 100-minute film consisting of two sets,” says Brandwein. “Though the band moves onward to new horizons, we are very excited to have this version—the “colors era”—of our show forever captured on film and available digitally everywhere. We hope our fans are equally excited. So put it on the biggest screen you’ve got and turn it up loud!”

In the days leading up to the film’s release, members of Turkuaz will share what they’re doing at home to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Anyone who makes a purchase from the Turkuaz store will also have the option to add a donation to Backline, a mental health and wellness resource hub that aims to “connect music industry professionals and their families with a trusted network of mental health and wellness care providers.”
