The Heavy Pets
The Heavy Pets
The Heavy Pets are an American rock band whose contagious vibe blends rhythm and blues, jazz-funk, nu-disco and reggae fusion with rock & roll. Called "a living, breathing, force of nature" by Relix Magazine, the Pets are known for their soulful song-craft and the powerhouse live performances of their infectious dance songs. Riding high on their most recent studio effort, the A/B single Two Horses, look out for The Heavy Pets as they continue to hit the road hard.

The group became an instant Sirius radio sensation in 2007 with the release of their doubledisc 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."

Major festival darlings, THP have taken the stage at Bonnaroo, Jam Cruise, High Sierra, Gathering of the Vibes, All Good, Wakarusa, Mountain Jam, Bear Creek, Summer Camp, Catskill Chill, AURA and their namesake PetZoo.

Guavatron
Guavatron
Born and raised in South Florida, Guavatron formed in 2013 and began creating their own unique sound. With influences from all spectrums of music, Guavatron emphasizes on fusing genres together with seamless transitions and evolving improvisation.

Shortly after forming, they began playing shows and focused on creating sets that varied from previous shows, giving the audience something new every time. After a couple years of playing shows and writing, they shifted their focus to a self titled studio EP which was recorded at Power Station Recording Studio. With songs such as "Then I Would" and "Hot Sauce", the EP briefly represents the range of Guavatron.

After a successful studio debut, Guavatron is back to writing and playing shows and festivals across the state. Make sure to find your way to the ever evolving dance party that is the essence of Guavatron when they are nearby.
Until then, much love, much guava.
Electric Kif
Electric Kif
"Hailing from Miami, Electric Kif and their undeniable spunk has caught the attention of music lovers through their execution of cosmic funk, rock, soul, and jazz. Their taste and talent bring an unparalleled energy and sound to the stage that inevitably creates a uniquely raw experience through every performance.

Ready to release their latest LP, Heist, which was recorded, produced, and mixed entirely by the quartet, “The Kif” have been gaining momentum through touring throughout Florida, earning them select festival slots in the past year. Together, they have harnessed a unique spirit, capturing their current chemistry on the new record– due out in February 2017 – which they describe as post-nuclear music.

The Kif has gone on to perform with national acts such as Snarky Puppy, Kung Fu, The Main Squeeze, Naughty Professor, Stratosphere All-Stars, TR3 featuring Tim Reynolds, The Fritz, Progger, and Killiam Shakespeare, as well as South Florida’s finest Roosevelt Collier and The Heavy Pets through a series of deep south and northeast runs. Not only has the quartet garnered regional attention, but they have also been instrumental to the core of the blossoming music scene in Miami, spanning across several diverse projects in between and acting as the backing musicians for many national and international acts."
