In their first year, the Heavyweights have gained a strong following in Toronto, playing regularly to packed houses at the Gladstone Hotel, the Painted Lady, and world-famous jazz venue The Rex Hotel, as well as raucous post-concert parties for visiting New Orleans legends Nicholas Payton, Allen Toussaint and Gregg Stafford. Their live repertoire features original compositions, neo-soul tunes, classic R & B songs, New Orleans jazz standards, and outrageous arrangements of Top-40 pop hits – a winning combination that never fails to get a crowd on its feet. The band will be going into the studio the week after to record there first full length cd.
