All you have to know about these guys is the fanatical following of "Gumbo Heads" that numbers in thousands. They drive hundreds of miles to get a serving of Big Al and the Heavyweights musical gumbo. You see, Big Al and the Heavyweights is an unconventional original music band that hails from New Orleans, LA. Why Big Al himself is from The Big Easy. That is where he grew up, surrounded by the sounds of New Orleans music - Jazz, Blues, Zydeco, Cajun, Rock, and Swamp Pop. It is these influences that make Heavyweights music so accessible and fun. Big Al and the Heavyweights will be on the road 240+ days this year, and it is this regimen of hard touring for the last six years that has made them one of the most well known, unsigned original bands in any musical form.
From the opening bars of "Cajun Roux", it’s apparent why fans of Big Al & the Heavyweights are fondly referred to as "Gumbo Heads". The band delivers a healthy serving of downhome, Cajun flavored blues. "Live Crawfish" is remarkably crisp; the sound of this diamond in the rough band doesn’t get lost in the mix. ~ Blues Revue
Big Al & the Heavyweights are a bad ass blues band... serving up over 70 minutes of superior rock stompin blues, the band is rock solid. This is a great party cd- play it loud at your next crawfish throwdown. ~ OffBEAT

"Live Crawfish" is soulful, upbeat blues with some serious grooves. You’ll have a hard time keeping your feet, hips, or head still. the music’s the thing and lyrically the band dishes out party-band boilerplate on love, mardi gras, and crawfish. ~ River Cities Reader
