Meet The Heavy Pets. They’re a prolific funk-fused jazz-tinged and intellectually driven jam band that tours the country, making fans like me dance like wild to their heavy jams and visual feast of lights. They are staples in the lineups at monstrous festivals like Bonnaroo, Langerado, moe.downGathering of the Vibes, and my personal fave All Good. They’re seen by many hundreds of thousands fans across the United States. They’ve recorded with Grammy winning producers and renowned musicians. They’re talented and musically sexy. The singular drawback I find in them, and in many bands that surround the jam genre, is that they dress like…well…boys. The goal is to trim some of the immaturity off of their look, and bring them style-wise into the bold maturing and experimental sound of their music. Today I’m going on a styling adventure with lead singer Jeff Lloyd to help The Heavy Pets to dress like they sound for their concert this Friday, March 18th at The Brooklyn Bowl.

Style Adventure with The Heavy Pets

Follow me @JessicaLapidos as I tweet from the fitting room floor. First stop: Timo Weiland. From there I’m taking him on a high-low fashion exploration. Come along to see what I’m talking about.

In the meantime, enjoy this live performance of “Drenched” by The Heavy Pets. Their look here shows me they’re ready.

Can they evolve to be one of the future Best Dressed Man Bands?

I impart my daily love of light layering, thick-as-thieves platforms and undiscovered fashionable gems. I love to turn a phrase, and in truth I'm a designer at werq.
