The Werks – www.thewerksmusic.com
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.

There were inspired performances and surprises galore at the second annual Werk Out Music & Arts Festival, held on September 8-11 in Bellefontaine, Ohio. Presented through Funky Bean Productions and Alchemy House, Werk Out gave it’s largely camping community an opportunity to socialize, and make new connections on the sprawling Zane Shawnee Caverns grounds while enjoying cutting edge improvisational jams from the nation’s beloved masters of the genre.
On Friday, September 9, the afternoon picked up pace early on with String Cheese Incident keyboardist Kyle Hollingsworth, who delivered a riveting hour and a half swing through percolating rhythm and blues originals, including the bracing opening track, “Way That It Goes,” from his 2009 long player, Then There’s Now. On the smaller side stage, hammered dulcimer wizard Jamie Janover held court with a growing Werk Out audience that sat for an hour listening to Janover’s cruising power chords in rapt amazement. During Friday’s early evening hours, String Cheese drummer Michael Travis mixed electronica with dub step as his partner in EOTO, Jason Hann, drummed and sang with a strikingly original ear for wide sweeping arrangements and intimate urban melodies.
