Midwestern fusion outfit The Werks brings its rock-centric jams to Pisgah Brewing Company on Friday, Feb. 24, continuing the brewery’s diverse music series. Although the band is far from a staple of the local scene, it’s worked with a number of Asheville regulars, including Railroad Earth, Papdosio and Ultraviolet Hippopotamus, along with a host of other well-known acts like Badfish, BoomBox, Freekbass and Sam Bush.
More on the band from its website, “The Werks is Ohio’s premier rock, funk and trance band. They fuse a unique blend of many musical styles and influences to produce a distinct and powerful sound that audiences crave. The Werks’ original songs explore genres such as rock, funk, jam, electronica, soul, bluegrass, jazz, Afro-Cuban, Celtic, R&B and dance. The chemistry between band members has been the key in The Werks’ success. Each member has harnessed his own individual groove with influences as eclectic as their music; some common influences include Led Zeppelin, Eric Clapton, The Allman Brothers, Phish, Jimi Hendrix, Rush, The Beatles, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pink Floyd, Umphrey’s McGee and The Grateful Dead.”
