THE FREE ENERGY TOUR

The Heavy Pets and Roosevelt Collier Band are teaming up for their first ever co-billed run dubbed The “Free Energy Tour”. The two Florida based powerhouse live acts have long collaborated, but never joined forces for such a combined concerted effort. The run will bring them to 4 familiar sunshine state cities: Orlando, Jacksonville, Tampa and Boca Raton, while also promising to be the first leg of a larger dual effort, with plans to continue the Free Energy Tour elsewhere around the US in the late Summer and Fall.

The Heavy Pets
The Heavy Pets
The Heavy Pets are a funky-ass rock and roll band from South Florida. Called "a living, breathing force of nature" by Relix magazine, they are known for their songcraft and powerhouse live performances. The band has been a mainstay on the national touring circuit for over a decade, and released its fourth full-length studio album Strawberry Mansion in spring 2018.

The Pets are a seasoned live act, playing over 1200 shows across the country since their inception in 2005. The band's energetic, extended sets have been described as "full blown musical salvation" that embodies the sound of their Florida home, weaving together elements of indie rock, funk and reggae into a style that is uniquely their own.

The group became an instant Sirius radio sensation upon the release of their debut album Whale in 2007. The crossover sound on their self-titled release, named a "Top 10 Album of 2010" by The Huffington Post, propelled them into the periphery of mainstream music. 2011 saw the release of Swim Out Past The Sun, an acoustic affair featuring longtime Jerry Garcia collaborator David Grisman. Beginning in 2013, The Heavy Pets put out a series of EPs recorded at the legendary Power Station studios, and released its fourth LP in spring 2018.
