Hailing from “The Heart of it All,” The Werks are quickly emerging as a national jam band powerhouse. Creating their own ‘Psychedelic Dance Rock,’ The Werks fuses shredding guitar with the screaming organ of jam and classic rock, the slap bass of funk and the more modern sounds of synthesizers and dance beats. As inventive as their sound may be, it’s the band’s unique style of performing – interpreted and amplified back by the audience, that guarantees each show will be both different then the last and undeniably memorable.
Drummer and vocalist Rob Chafin elaborates, “Music is a form of communication and performing live is transforming the energy and emotions of the audience and venue into tones and rhythms that affect us on a subconscious level.”
Winning over audiences and beginning to regularly sell-out their regional performances, The Werks have performed at this year’s Wakarusa, All Good and Summer Camp Festivals. The band hosted its 3rd annual festival September 20-23 called The Werk Out Music Festival, which featured over forty bands and drew nearly 3000 attendees this year.
