Live Music: The Undisputed Heavyweights

New York’s The Undisputed Heavyweights have announced a summer residency at the esteemed Joe’s Pub. Having already played before a sold out crowd this past Friday, the Heavyweights will be play again Thursday, July 26 and Friday, August 24. All shows will begin promptly at 9:30pm with opening acts featuring the cities most incredibly talented, up-and-coming musicians, including Wakey!Wakey! (July 26) and Seth Kallen (August 24). Tickets are $12 and can be purchased at Joe’s Pub Box Office (212.967.7555) or online at

Described by AM New York as "Frank Sinatra meets The Doors in a way only Stevie Wonder could dream of”, the band features acoustic guitars and a horn section. "The Heavyweights deliver an accomplished rock/blues/soul hybrid, and their endearingly uninhibited front man [Casey Shea] puts them right in the tradition of vaudevillian showmanship."(The New Yorker) While each song is uniquely different, together the melodies build a cohesive set. Performing together since 2004, the three founding members (Shea, Wes Verhoeve, and Jeff Jacobson) connected through open mic nights in New York City and decided to create a sound that blended each of their musical influences.
