The Werks:
The Werks have emerged & established themselves as a national powerhouse; delivering an electrifying dance party to beloved fans across the musical spectrum. Fusing psychedelic shredding, wailing organ, and slap bass with synthesizers

and modern dance beats, their live shows encompass a sensational blend of jam-rock and deep electronic funk.

These genre-benders will be touring throughout 2016 in support of their 4th studio album, 'Inside a Dream' released in November 2015, which takes listeners on a track-by-track musical voyage through the heart of a dream; into their own hopes, fears, and aspirations. The seasoned jam-centric quartet brings a sonically superior mix of otherworldly explorations and revelatory lyrics to this artistic and mature musical statement.

Through sanguine compositions that effortlessly transition from spacious soundscapes to driving rhythms, the album merges multiple genres in a style that only this Ohio quartet can deliver. Throughout the 11-track release, Inside a Dream remains raw yet polished, and emotional yet whimsical... it is within these contradictions where the depth of the band truly shines.

Catch them soon in a city near you, or at the 7th incarnation of their "Werk Out Music & Arts Festival" in August, which draws 5000+ people annually to Ohio.

Big Something:
With a powerful sound that is both refreshingly original and yet classic in its approach, BIG Something fuses elements of rock, pop, funk, hip hop and improv, in order to take listeners on a journey through a myriad of musical styles. Formed in 2009, Big Something is one of the most exciting new rock bands to emerge from the southeast. The band features Nick MacDaniels (guitars, vocals), Doug Marshall (bass), Josh Kagel (keys, synth, trumpet), Casey Cranford (sax, EWI), Jesse Hensley (lead guitar), and Ben Vinograd (drums).

With the help of Grammy-Nominated producer John Custer the group recorded and released their 2010 debut concept album, Stories from the Middle of Nowhere, which quickly captured Home Grown Music Network's 2010 Album Of The Year Award and spent several months at number 1 on the jambands.com radio charts. Stories from the Middle of Nowhere was followed up by the widely well-received live album, Live from Uranus, as well as 2013's Self-Titled which captured 3 different album of the year awards. Most recently the band released their highly 3rd full length studio album Truth Serum on Nov. 4th, 2014 featuring a special guest appearance from NYC turntablist DJ Logic.

After several years of relentless touring, Big Something has performed across the country as direct support for the likes of Galactic, moe., The B52s, Robert Randolph and The Family Band, Zach Deputy, DJ Logic, Toubab Krewe, Dopapod, and countless other up and coming artists. In turn, they have become a high demand festival act, and have appeared at FloydFest, Camp Barefoot, Blackwater, Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival, Pink Moon, Strangecreek, Wormtown, Mantrabash, Smilefest, NC Music & Arts Festival, Front Porch Fest, Domefest, and many more. BIG Something also hosts their own annual summer music festival and campout in Mebane, NC called The Big What?, which has sold out two years in a row, further propelling this imaginative, entertaining, and musically progressive jamband rooted in traditional American music of the southeast to a much wider national audience.

Calling Kalamazoo home, a city rich in music tradition, That Freak Quincy works to uphold that tradition with high quality musicianship and live performance.

Join us and be part of the excitement as we jump right in gear up to spread the word of that freak, Quincy that is....
