WITH SPECIAL GUESTS

VAN GHOST, RHYTHM MANDING and SONNY STUBBLE
Thursday, May 5th

The Werks are a favorite of music-lovers all over the US and fans can't seem to get enough. One fan describes the experience: "With blazing guitar licks that illuminate vast soundscapes of piano and keyboard synths, they carry you away, while the bass and drum provide a beat and pulse that keep you steady, feet movin and your hips swayin, you're here and there all at once. So, I guess the only question here would be: Do you like to dance?" -Sara Kundlinger

Formed in 2007, The Werks have an intrinsic style that explore diverse elements of rock, funk, electronica, soul, bluegrass, jazz, Afron-Cuban, Celtic, R&B, and dance. The chemistry between band members has been the key in The Werks success. The band has worked and/or toured with many great acts such as EOTO, Perpetual Groove, Ekoostik Hookah, Railroad Earth, Lotus, Tea Leaf Green, Papadosio, Badfish, U-Melt, The Macpodz, BoomBox, Freekbass, One Under, The Maji, Ultraviolet Hippopotamus, The Recipe, The Spikedrivers, Four Finger Five, Rumpke Mountain Boys, Jam Samich, Burning River Band, Mike Perkins, Covert Operations, The Ragbirds, Back 40 and Sam Bush.
