Last night, The Werks played for their first time in Milwaukee, WI, making sure to leave a lasting first impression. Doing what they do best, they stretched a few of their songs to astronomical levels, featuring some long jams in which fans have come to expect from them. They picked up right from where they left off in Madison.Conundrum opened the show in Milwaukee, getting things going with a funky rhythm of percussion in their tune “Cops Are Here.” Then Soap picked up the energy and got the crowd moving, especially during their “Dear Prudence” cover. By the time The Werks took the stage, everyone in the crowd was ready to get down.They opened with “Drop,” and the dance party began. They followed with “Better Than Before,” a song that may lack in danceability but makes up in strong vocals from drummer Rob Chafin. “The only thing you have to ask yourself, are you better than before?” It is a very positive message for anybody who is looking to grow personally.If Chafin’s vocals were good in the song, they only got better in a cover of Steve Miller Band’s “Fly Like an Eagle,” sandwiched in the middle of “Finding Destiny.” The cover was played with a good funky groove, much like the original. There wasn’t one person who was standing still; the entire place was moving. “Eagle” even had a strong jam section based on the piercing and unmistakable guitar riff of Led Zeppelin’s “The Ocean.” As good as the improv was, the song was all about the vocals though. Even Steve Miller (and Seal too) would have been impressed with them. Specifically when returning to the last refrain, Chafin held his note for what seemed like a minute, “Time keeps on slippiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin’.” The crowd rewarded Chafin’s vocals by going absolutely crazy. Fan favorite “Hard to Find” closed the set, and it included a monster jam as well as a drum solo. He has vocals and some good chops on the skins too.Immediately the crowd started cheering for one more song, and The Werks obliged with a 15+ minute “Galactic Passport.” It was really nice to see an encore that featured some extended jamming. It was a great show especially considering it was their first time in Milwaukee. Something tells me that this won’t be their last time there either.Be sure to catch The Werks on the road throughout 2016, including their annual Werk Out Festival. Featuring the likes of STS9, Lettuce, Dopapod, Twiddle, The Motet and more. It all goes down August 4-6 in Thornville, OH, and more information about the festival can be found here.
