WaterWorks pulls their sound from the archives of classic rock mixed with their 90s upbringing of jam, funk, southern, and alternative rock to create a unique blend of timeless yet intriguing music. Intent on remaining an original act, the group blends a concoction of their developing originals with fresh versions of classic covers. As a five piece, the group contains vocalists, two guitars, drums, bass, and saxophone.
Founded in early 2017, the group grabs their namesake from an old WaterWorks building off Morehead Street in Charlotte, North Carolina. A few band mates worked in the building during the day and noticed the building had a fantastic sound when they jammed there after hours, making a fun atmosphere to blow off some steam. After playing the always enjoyable house party gigs, Alec (vocals/guitar), Erick (saxophone), and Wes (vocals/guitar) drove the band further down the road in 2017 to playing gigs at local staples such as Thomas Street Tavern, Petra's, and The Milestone with an exciting, rotating cast of musicians. 2018 took the band to increased heights with regular gigs at breweries, food truck festivals, and various Charlotte regional bars; older songs became more solidified and new tunes kept popping up.
Currently, the group is working on tightening up originals for recordings, prepping songs for Winter 2019 shows, and continually writing new material.
Look for them to play at a venue near you in 2019 and give them a listen...something good is cookin!
