Big Al and the Heavyweights originally formed in 1996 as the Unknown Blues Band with founding members Al Lauro, Warren Haynes and Rick Gergen (Sweethearts of the Rodeo). Of course, Warren is no longer in the band, but Big Al has formed a solid array of musicians including Louisiana Music Hall of Fame piano \ vocalist, Wayne Lohr, critically acclaimed guitarist vocalist, Marcel Anton and bassist vocalist, Mark Parsons. The band continues to tour extensively playing venues and festivals throughout the US.

The Vizztone Label Group has released the band’s seventh recording of original roots music entitled, Love One Another. The recording includes special musical guests Luther Dickinson of the North MS Allstars and former Heavyweight member and harmonica virtuoso, Jason Ricci. The disc was recorded at famed Suite Mix Studios in Slidell, LA with George Curreau Jr engineering and producing who is noted for Funky Meters guitarist Brian Stoltz’s numerous recording projects.

Big Al and the Heavyweights live performances are family oriented, energetic and most of all fun! This is a show you don’t want to miss.
