Biography

Casey Shea, Jeff Jacobson and Wes Verhoeve are the core of The Undisputed Heavyweights, a Lower East Side band described as Frank Sinatra meets The Doors in a way only Stevie Wonder could dream of, (am New York). Such acclaim for undiscovered musicians might elicit incredulity among the un-indoctrinated until one’s first Heavyweight experience.

Their sound is melodic, memorable, and completely original. Lead singer Shea has a stunning, soulful voice that works wonders in all octaves. While each song is uniquely different, together the melodies build an unexpectedly cohesive set.

The virtue of a true live show is if, in the end, it is memorable. Behind the insults and the Amens is sophisticated songwriting and clever arrangements. And whether you remember Casey Shea’s sunglasses, the Roll Your Windows Down sing-a-long or the pop sensibility of Lartigue, it doesn’t really matter, as there’s something for everyone.

Performing together since 2004, the three founding members connected through open mic nights in New York City and decided to create a sound that blended their unique influences.
