The Heavy Pets
The Heavy Pets
The Heavy Pets are an American rock band that blends rhythm & blues, jazz, funk, disco and reggae with rock & roll. Called "a living, breathing, force of nature" by Relix Magazine, the Pets are known for their soulful songcraft and powerhouse live performances. Riding high on the success of their most recent studio effort, Two Horses, look out for The Heavy Pets as they continue to hit the road hard.

"Nice big balls." – Dennis Cook, Jambase

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, their crossover sound that is showcased on their self-titled album, also dubbed a "Top 10 Album of 2010" by The Huffington Post, propelled them into the periphery of mainstream music. Returning to their acoustic roots on Swim Out Past the Sun (2011), THP's guitar duo set aside their electric axes for a more organic approach. The Heavy Pets followed up those polished efforts by releasing the Everywhere Sessions: Volume 1 EP, recorded live in the studio with accompanying videos of the three songs "Chew," "Help Me Help You" and "The Day the Sun Forgot to Rise."

The Heavy Pets are…
Jeff Lloyd – Guitar/Vocals
Mike Garulli – Guitar/Harmonica/Vocals
Jim Wuest – Keyboard/Vocals
Jamie Newitt – Drums/Vocals
Tony D'Amato – Bass
Staycation
Staycation
Hailing from the nation's capital, Staycation evokes sounds of new and old—built on a foundation of dance-inducing grooves, gritty psychedelic rock, soaring solos, and topped off with infectious vocal hooks. Each live show is a unique experience, featuring seamless segues and non-step energy. As Live Music Daily put it, the end result is “less like a show and increasingly like a great party.”

Formerly part of DC Funk Rock group B Side Shuffle, Staycation's members have been mainstays in the DMV music scene for years, with major festival appearances at the All Good Festival and Camp Barefoot, and flagship venues like the 9:30 Club, Howard Theatre, Baltimore Soundstage, and the 8x10, and sharing stages with nationally-touring artists such as the Revivalists, Moon Taxi, Zach Deputy, Dopapod, and many more.

Staycation is Joseph Dolan (drums), Carter Jones (bass), Will Sautter (vocals/alto sax/keys), and Nick Sus (vocals/guitar).
