Featuring a larger-than-life performance by Brooklyn-based Turkuaz who will ignite our stage with an explosion of energy punctuated by neon hues, deft musicality, and show-stopping sing-alongs. The nine-piece band delivers horn-filled funk with splashes of alternative, rock, R&B, and psychedelia to color the male-female harmonies, strutting guitars, wild horn arrangements, and interminable grooves that get people dancing.
Also featuring a special performance by students of our Ascend through Music Program who are learning to write, mix, produce, and record their own original songs.
Support | Night at The Yards is a benefit in support of the innovative hands-on education, job-training, health & wellness, and violence prevention programs provided by Living Classrooms Foundation. Living Classrooms disrupts the cycle of poverty and makes our community safer, stronger, and healthier.
