All you have to know about these guys is the fanatical following of "Gumbo Heads" that numbers in thousands.
They drive hundreds of miles to get a serving of Big Al and the Heavyweights musical gumbo.
You see, Big Al and the Heavyweights is an unconventional original music band that hails from New Orleans, LA.
Why Big Al himself is from The Big Easy.
That is where he grew up, surrounded by the sounds of New Orleans music - Jazz, Blues, Zydeco, Cajun, Rock, and Swamp Pop.
It is these influences that make Heavyweights music so accessible and fun.
Big Al and the Heavyweights will be on the road 240+ days this year, and it is this regimen of hard touring for the last six years that has made them one of the most well known, unsigned original bands in any musical form.
