The Hip Abduction will be playing Orlando at the House of Blues on January 30, at a show that includes The Expendables, and Zach Deputy Band.
Hailing from St. Petersburg, FL, they are touring in support of their upcoming sophomore album, Gold Under the Glow, which is set to hit stores March 11, 2016.
Fans going to see Umphrey’s McGee at the House of Blues Orlando on August 30, would do well to get there early to see the openers, South Florida’s The Heavy Pets.
To call this quintet a “jam band” doesn’t quite do justice to their sound, which takes a classic rock sound and mixes in jazz, funk, R&B, reggae, and more. They’ve been called “a living, breathing force of nature” by Relix Magazine, and their live performances have gotten them raves at festivals ranging from Bonnaroo to AURA.
The Heavy Pets have recently released the latest in their EP series, Rags and Aces, and its three songs sound great, but are quite different from each other. “Movie Star” is a light summery reggae-influenced pop tune. “Dewpoint” is a jazzy little funk number that segues into disco territory. “Chew” wraps up the release with an indie rock ode to long nights of indulgence. The EP is available to stream and purchase at http://bit.ly/THPRagsAces.
