Athens based concert production company A–Town Roots is excited to bring two of Ohio’s biggest jam bands to the Venue of DRXVMS. Nov. 3 will feature Cincinnati based bluegrass/jam outfit Rumpke Mountain Boys. Nov. 4 will feature Dayton based psychedelic jam group The Werks.

The Rumpke Mountain Boys have been buzzing around the top of the Ohio bluegrass scene ever since their inception over a decade ago. The group’s style of playing and performance is truly unique to the more classic structure of bluegrass, which they call “trash grass.” Performing without a setlist, the band links the crowd’s energy with their music to create a unique, consciousness and emotional live show. The band has had the chance to tour constantly around the United States over the last few years, and you will always see them at the top of the bill whenever they are in Ohio.

Opening the show will be Athens Americana group Mountains Lost. Craft beers from Jackie O’s Pub & Brewery will be sold to benefit Athens, OH non-profit organization Adyn’s Dream, which raises funds to provide financial relief for families who face the challenges of spinal muscular dystrophy. The show starts at 9 p.m. with cover for 18–20 costing $12 and 21+ costing $10.

It has been three years since The Werks have visited Athens and they’ve truly grown since their last stop. The four-piece band, who combines psychedelic rock, electronica, funk and jam roots to their music, has been constantly moving to the top of the jam scene. Their annual Werk Out Music & Arts Festival was the most successful it has ever been in its seven years, while the group has been touring internationally, performing at various festivals and opening up for huge acts like STS9, Umphrey’s McGee and 311. Their high-energy show has something for music lovers of all kinds and will be sure to keep your constantly dancing.

Opening the show will be rising Cincinnati jam fusion act Peridoni. Jackie O’s beer will also be solid for Adyn’s Dream. Doors open at 9 p.m. and cover will be $20. $15 presale tickets can still be purchased here.
