Wurk at Cafe Coda

Thu November 29, 2018 @ 8:30 pm - 11:30 pm

$10

Wurk will play two hour-long sets that are primarily funk/jazz oriented. If you’re fans of their tunes, Prism, Jupiter, Broken Disco, Bright and Crunch you can expect those to be on the docket.

Wurk is a funk-fusion group from Madison, WI, described by Isthmus Magazine as “summer-jam-perfect”. Wurk’s style encompasses several genres, with clear influences from bands like Snarky Puppy, Thundercat, Umphrey’s McGee, Tauk, The Motet, Herbie Hancock, The Meters, and many more. Their sound seeks to employ a musically educated yet groovy “Big City” tone. With songwriting by guitarist/vocalist, Frank Laufenberg, and keyboardist/vocalist Miles Morkri, Wurk fills the gap between complexity and groove. Max Morkri, a 2018 MAMA award nominee for Instrumentalist of the Year on drum set, drives the band with his blend of solid grooving and intricate chops. Coupled with Max’s drumming, Casey Seymour delivers powerful bass lines which pull the band together. Ryley Buchanan (synth/organ), Daniel Haschke (saxophone/flute) and Carl Hipenbecker (trumpet) add to Wurk’s complexity with horn lines, effects, and impressive solos. Most of Wurk’s members grew up in Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, just west of Madison. Their shared background creates the band’s closeness on stage and their ability to communicate musically. Wurk released two EPs in 2017 (Wurk, Broken Disco) and is fresh off the late September release of their third EP, The Devil’s Wurk.

Tickets are $10 to experience Wurk at the beautiful, new Cafe Coda venue.
