Live Music: WURK with East of Vilas

800 Langdon St.
Madison, WI 53706

Wurk is a 6-piece funk-fusion group that formed in Madison, WI in 2016.  Inspired by Snarky Puppy, Umphrey’s McGee, Herbie Hancock, and many others; their innovative original songs and ambitious interpretations of popular covers offer an impressive multi-genre exploration of funk, jazz fusion, prog rock, reggae, and more. Described by Isthmus Magazine as “summer-jam-perfect”, their sound seeks to employ a musically educated tone. Wurk fills the gap between complexity and groove, impressing fans and keeping them dancing all night.

East of Vilas -- formerly Game Theory -- is an indie, soul and rock band, also from Madison.
