Over the weekend, Boca Raton’s The Funky Biscuit played host to Sunday night’s Festival After Party with The Heavy Pets. With so many musicians in town, many of them made it to the venue for a guest-filled night of music, featuring turntablist DJ Logic, bassist MonoNeon (formerly of Prince’s band), Lettuce/Soulive guitarist Eric Krasno, South Florida’s very own blues guitar slinger Albert Castiglia, as well as TTB saxophonist Kebbi Williams and trumpeter Ephraim Owens.

Blending older and newer material and well-placed covers, The Heavy Pets played three sets total, with a second set all-star jam. Thanks to CHeeSeHeaDPRoDuCTioNS, you can relive the glory with some videos and audio.

The Heavy Pets w/ DJ Logic & MonoNeon cover Bob James’ haunting “Nautilus” (1974), which was said to have been produced so that the tones were reminiscent of the sounds of a submerging submarine.

The Heavy Pets w/ DJ Logic, MonoNeon, Albert Castiglia, Kebbi Williams & Ephraim Owens perform the classic “Thank You (Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin)” by Sly & The Family Stone (1969).

The Heavy Pets w/ Eric Krasno, DJ Logic, MonoNeon, Albert Castiglia, Kebbi Williams & Ephraim Owens play The Isley Brothers’ quiet storm-funk “Between The Sheets” (1983) and The Pets’ original jam “Dewpoint”.

Jason Matthews of Electric Kif leant The Heavy Pets a hand on keyboards during this epic, 3rd set “So Thank You Music” to close the evening.
