Formed in 2007, The Werks have quickly emerged as a national powerhouse. As a result of their eclectic individual influences, The Werks produce a dance party that can be appreciated by a majority of musical tastes. Fusing the psychedelic shredding guitar and screaming organ of jam and classic rock with funk slap bass, synthesizers, and modern dance beats, The Werks are redefining the term "Jam Band" with the ability to cross genres from Psychedelic Rock to Funk to Electronica. Their unique style of performing is affected and manipulated by the energy of the audience, guaranteeing that each show will be different and memorable.
The success is largely credited to the hard work of their street team as well as to the dedication of the band, their fans and a unique performance.
The Werks have released 3 albums entitled: "Dig It" (2007), "Synapse" (2009) and "The Werks Live at The Werk Out Music Festival" (2010). The band regularly tours the US and holds their annual music festival, entitled "The Werk Out Music and Arts Festival", each September.

The group became an instant SiriusXM radio sensation in 2007 with the release of their double-disc debut album, Whale. First embraced by the jam scene for their raw talent, their crossover sound that is showcased on their self-titled album, also dubbed a “Top 10 Album of 2010” by The Huffington Post, propelled them into the periphery of mainstream music. Returning to their acoustic roots on Swim Out Past the Sun (2011), THP's guitar duo set aside their electric axes for a more organic approach. The Pets followed up those polished efforts by releasing Everywhere Sessions: Volume 1 (2012), recorded live in the studio with accompanying videos. In 2013, The Heavy Pets dropped Two Horses, the first in a series of self-produced EPs, which received heavy airplay on satellite radio.
The Heavy Pets have taken the stage at Bonnaroo, Jam Cruise, High Sierra, Gathering of the Vibes, All Good, Wakarusa, Mountain Jam, Langerado, Bear Creek, Summer Camp, Catskill Chill, AURA and their namesake PetZoo.
