Support: Higher Learning The Heavy Pets (THP) are an American band who 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. Brought together in the Classic City - Athens, GA - Sumilan is a band breaking the boundaries of classification. With a natural sound that has evolved into its own, the Georgia-grown group has combined individual appreciations for music with a belief in high dosages of experimentation and is sticking to these roots. Their live performances showcase the band's depth of chemistry and skill, which are both gaining notice. This "sum" of the members' musical leanings and influences brings a full, eclectic, and unique sound to the stage that pleases the ear, initiates head bobbing, and revives passion for rock 'n roll while appealing to the tastes of now.
