More Info

The Werks: Formed in 2007, The Werks are quickly emerging as a national jam band powerhouse. As a result of their eclectic individual influences, The Werks produce a dance party that can be appreciated by a majority of musical tastes. Fusing the psychedelic shredding guitar and screaming organ of jam and classic rock with funk slap bass, synthesizers, and modern dance beats, The Werks create their own style of music entitled "Psychedelic Dance Rock". Their unique style of performing is affected and manipulated by the energy of the audience, guaranteeing that each show will be different and memorable.

The success is largely credited to the hard work of their street team as well as to the dedication of the band, their fans and a unique performance, which is affected and manipulated by the energy and soul of the audience, guaranteeing that each show will be different and memorable.

The Werks have released 4 albums entitled: "Dig It" (2007), "Synapse" (2009), "The Werks Live at The Werk Out Music Festival" (2010) and their self-titled album, The Werks (2012). The band regularly tours the US and holds their annual music festival, entitled "The Werk Out Music and Arts Festival", each September.

Passafire: Since its formation in 2003, the reggae-rock band Passafire has captivated people everywhere with their unique, magnetic style and fresh original songs. Managing to combine roots-reggae with contemporary rock, the group has gained a reputation for solid, stirring live performances at packed venues like the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach (SC), The Freebird in Jacksonville (FL), Marrz Theatre in Wilmington (NC), and The Lions Den in NYC. In a little over three years Passafire has gained a broad and ever growing fan base rooted in the southeast US, and continues to tour heavily to promote themselves and expand the reaches of their music. The immense versatility and depth of this group is reflected in their well crafted songs which exemplify a new direction for modern reggae music. Because of this, Passafire is able to reach a broader mainstream audience. The group is comprised of four members who have all hailed from different places in the US and abroad. Ted Bowne, the lead singer and guitarist from Salisbury Maryland, fronts the band, and has written many of their successful songs to date. Keyboard player Adam Willis, who grew up in Alexandria, Virginia, as well as in Denmark, also contributes as a songwriter and back-up vocalist. Nick Kubley, from Plymouth, Indiana is the drummer who honed his skills in live performance throughout high school before moving to Georgia. He is one half of the rhythm section along with younger brother Will Kubley on bass, who continues to impress audiences with his virtuoso technique which extends to numerous other instruments. Passafire has worked diligently to establish themselves as the southeast's foremost reggae act, and is quickly becoming a recognized name.
