The Heavy Pets

The Heavy Pets combine blazing chops with elegant songwriting, thought-provoking lyrics and a heavy, danceable backbeat.  Hailing from Goshen, NY they have been playing original music together for over ten years. 


Using various lineups and names (My Friends Band, Anthem) they have played over 350 gigs together, and have shared the stage with such names as Bernie Worrell, Oteil Burbridge and the Peacemakers, Tea Leaf Green, Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes, and George Clinton and Parliament/Funkadelic. 


In fact, Jeff Lloyd made his South Florida debut jamming with George and P-Funk at Revolution New Years Eve '04-'05 and the Culture Room on 4/20/05. 


Since their arrival in South Florida, the Pets have earned a reputation as one of the area's most prolific and explosive original acts.  They were selected out of over 350 other unsigned bands to perform at the 2006 Langerado Music Festival. 


At Langerado they performed alongside acts like Ben Harper, The Black Crowes, The Flaming Lips, G Love and Robert Randolph (how much more namedropping do you need to check these guys out?). 


This July, The Heavy Pets will be embarking on an East Coast tour, and are booked everywhere from Upstate NY to Key West.  Check out our website for more information.
