In early February, The Werks convened in Columbus, OH for the debut of their Winter Werk Out Festival. Among the many glorious performances at the event, one of the most special was dubbed The Twerks Tribute To The 70’s.

The Twerks naturally saw The Werks join forces with Mihali Savoulidis of Twiddle, as well as bassist Dino Dimitrouleas, for a set-long tribute to the famed decade in music history. The 70’s tribute set featured funky takes on tracks by Black Sabbath, Rolling Stones, Traffic, Elton John, The Doors, Pink Floyd, KC & The Sunshine Band, Marvin Gaye, Ram Jam and Led Zeppelin! Talk about a fun time.

Says Werks’ keyboardist Dan Shaw, “It was great doing a set from such a wide range of 70s music! Playing with Dino again was awesome and Mihali sings like an angel. Always stoked to learn classic tunes and play them with badass musicians.” Guitarist Chris Houser adds, “It was so much fun getting together with Mihali and Dino (our Greek brothers!). It amazed me honestly how well he whole set turned out. When you do a collaborative set where there are no actual rehearsals, it is always a little nerve-racking, but it was super tight and really really fun.”

Fortunately, you’ll be able to enjoy the really really fun, super tight set for yourself! The Werks are serving up a free download, and we’ve got the exclusive at L4LM. Check it out via the Bandcamp embed below.

We’re also delighted to premiere the official video for “Black Betty,” which you can stream in the YouTube player below.
