Big Al and the Heavyweights

Big Al and the Heavyweights originated when Al Lauro started "The Unknown Blues Band" with Warren Haynes, who has played with the Allman Brothers Band and is the founder of Gov't Mule.  Though Haynes no longer remains in the group, Lauro still does and has formed a solid band around him.  The band features Louisiana Music Hall of Fame piano player vocalist, Wayne Lohr along with guitarist vocalist extraordinaire Marcel Anton and solid bassist vocalist Mark Parsons.  The New Orleans-based band has played venues and festivals throughout the US since 1998 along with high profile Mardi Gras events including several episodes of Chef Emeril Lagassee's  "Emeril Live" and universal Orlando's Mardi Gras celebration.   

The latest  CD  "World Full of Trouble" (Ellersoul Records) is the band's 7th CD release, and includes several guest artists, such as famed Muddy Waters guitarist Bob Margolin, and New Orleans guitarist, John Lisi from Delta Funk. Big Al and the Heavyweights also welcomes back former Heavyweight and harmonica virtuoso, Jason Ricci.

"World Full of Trouble" was recorded at famed Suite Mix Studios in Slidell, LA noted for Funky Meters guitarist Brian Stoltz's numerous recording projects. The Cd charted at # 10 on the Living Blues Charts and was frequently played on XMs Bluesville.

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!
