"The Pets just might be a perfect jamband" -Dennis Cook, Jambase.com "My favorite band to hit the scene" Jonathan Schwartz, Sirius Radio Jam On 17 "...The greatest jamband to come out of Florida since, well, ever..." "They are an arena ready band without the arena. At its best the band is a living, breathing, force of nature-a whale." Dan Sweeney, Relix Magazine Formed in late 2005, The Heavy Pets are a traveling American Rock 'n' Roll band that are best known for their explosive live performances and deep catalog of original compositions. The bands' members have been writing and performing music together in various projects since 1996 when the founders of the band, Jeff, Mike, and Joe met in Goshen N.Y. Now based in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, The Heavy Pets have spent the last two years touring nationally and recording their double disc debut album "Whale" which was released in May of 2007. Backed by this monster release the Pets have found a happy home on stages across the country including a growing number of large festival appearances ('06 & '07 & 08 Langerado Festival in Sunrise, FL, the 10,000 Lakes Festival in Detroit Lakes, MN, The Bear Creek Festival in Quincy, FL, the Symbiosis Gathering in Angels Camp, CA, Ashefest in Deerfields, NC). Having multiple songwriters and lyricists within the band allows The Heavy Pets to encompass a wide range of musical styles within their work. The recent double album provides touches of folk, progressive rock, reggae, and funk. For tour dates, and live or studio releases check out theheavypets.com.

"Full blown musical salvation" "Funky loose limbed rock 'n' soul" - Jonathan Zwickle, Music Editor, Broward-Palm Beach New Times "Nice big balls to release a 2-CD, 20 track behemoth as their debut" "their future is bright" - Dennis Cook, Jambase.com "The Heavy Pets combine elegant songwriting with blazing chops, thought-provoking lyrics and a heavy, danceable backbeat." -High Times.com "Proof that lightening does indeed strike twice, The Heavy Pets scored a chance to play at Langerado for the second year in a row" -Relix "Some sort of funk-reggae rock hybrid that's laid back and sexy" "I like" - Leslie Gray Streeter, Palm Beach Post.
