Building off their success as a band, The Werks are set to throw their greatest Werk Out Festival ever.  
For 3 nights, The Werks will be fusing psychedelic and shredding guitar, a screaming classic rock organ, funk slap bass, and modern dance beats and synthesizers. This unique and highly danceable sound has been winning over audiences at clubs and festivals across the country and now on home stereos too with the release of this spring’s eponymous album. Their new CD aptly titled The Werks is available as a digital download online for a pay-what-you-want download at
