The Heavy Pets
Supporting Acts: Lingo, I.R.E The Heavy Pets
The Heavy Pets (THP) blend rhythm & blues, jazz-funk, nu-disco and reggae-fusion with rock & roll. Called "a living, breathing force of nature" by Relix, the Pets are known for powerhouse live performances of their infectious dance songs. The group became an instant Sirius radio sensation in 2007 with the release of their double-disc debut album, Whale, driven by hit tracks "Operation of Flight" and "Sleep." First embraced by the jam scene for their raw talent, the cross-over sound that is showcased on their self-titled album, which was dubbed a "Top 10 Album of 2010" by The Huffington Post, propelled them into the periphery of mainstream music.
