Money | The Undisputed Heavyweights

Wes is not only a fellow European and blogger, but he also happens to be part of NYC's finest. No, not the NYPD, but his band The Undisputed Heavyweights.

Many complain that New York bands lack at entertaining a crowd, thus resulting in the notorious hand-crossed blank stare than many attribute to New York show goers. I urge them them to check out The Heavyweights because frankly, it's an experience. The first time I saw them live at Pianos, I felt as though I had walked into another dimension. The music itself was so pure, hinting on old jazz and folk apropos for a smoky speakeasy...or a church. That's right, lead singer Casey Shea will reinvent the meaning of soul calling on you to say "Amen" or "Hallelujah" from the crowd. There can't be any one sound or genre that's coming out of New York these days. Not while the The Heavyweights are around.

My only qualm is that we only have three recordings to work with here. But rumor is that the band is working on a Live EP and perhaps some studio time in the 2006. I say this for every band, but this time I mean it -- the recordings do the band no justice. You have to see them live and "experience" what I try to put in words. Lucky for you they have some shows coming up:

1.21 - Arlene's Grocery 8pm(Full Band) w/ Julius & The Beat Hotel
1.29 - Galapagos 9pm (full band)
2.16 - Southpaw 9pm (full band) w/ C. Gibbs, M Shanghai String Band & Jones St Boys
2.24 - Pianos 9pm (full band) w/ Townhall!
