Footwerk - (Set time: 8:50 PM)


A Washington, D.C.-based 6-piece Pop outfit can only be described as an intense, high-energy performance, a ‘blind date’ for first timers or a ‘booty call’ to an experienced audience member. Vocally led by ‘friendzone’ power couple on the frontline, the back line is made up by a group of diverse musicians from different backgrounds:

Melissa (voice)

Kyle (raps)

Teddi (keys)

Eric (percussion)

Fern (bass)

Josh (drums)

Crafting their sound by ‘Sleeping Around’ with Rock rhythms under soulful Rap and R&B vocals over dance beats with a splash of percussion. Footwerk's unique style of ‘No Strings Attached’ fan interaction made their ‘One Night Stands’ popular in the saturated DMV scene.
Unbelievably, A chance craigslist meeting led to the formation of the independent group. Due to their immediate success they’ve decided to release their debut album, aptly titled ‘Casual Encounters’ and go out on a national tour of ‘One Night Stands' in 2015. Here's your chance to see for yourself, if there’s chemistry in person and have your own ‘Casual Encounter’ with Footwerk. (No Strings Attached)
