The Werks with Chachuba
Thu, Mar 15 8:00 pm
The Werks: On their latest LP Magic, melodic visionaries The Werks transcend their funk rock roots while never losing their identity. Poignant songwriting and engaging improvisation come together on a record that showcases their maturation as a multidimensional group of uniquely creative musicians. The virtuosic rhythm junkies of The Werks have released four highly acclaimed studio albums over the past ten years - Synapse (2009), The Werks (2012), Mr. Smalls Sessions EP (2014), and Inside a Dream (2015) - performed well over one thousand shows (including launching their own multi-day music festival The Werk Out), and released countless live recordings including last year’s Live at The Werk Out live album. In that time they’ve earned a devoted fan base across the world and reputation as one of the most energetic, compelling, and downright entertaining live acts in the business. They’ve developed a hard won confidence, and a willingness to fearlessly chart new sonic territory on Magic. Chachuba: Chachuba is a four piece electronic/trance-fusion jam band that does not let the notion of "genre" limit the styles and influences found in their live shows. Chachuba has been able to transcend boundaries and have had the honor to play alongside talented jam bands and electronic producers. The band is influenced by electronic dance music, with improvisation as a key component. Their jams are fueled by heavy and melodic guitar riffs, synths, and funky beats. No matter the show or festival, headlining or supporting gig, Chachuba’s music is infectious--and their fanbase continues to grow day by day.
