RTRFM Local Music Hub Band/Artist Profile

Huge Magnet

Years Active 2013 - Present

Genre Blues, Roots, Rock

Members Jay Bale Junior, Bretskii Hearn, Sloanie

Describe Your Sound

HUGE MAGNET are a new garage boogie blues band featuring gold nugget JAY BALE JUNIOR on bass/lead vocals (SNEAKY WEASEL GANG), BRETSKII ‘HOT DOG’ HEARN on guitar/vocals (SUNSHINE BROTHERS/FUNKOLA/FDEL) and SLOANDOG on drums/vocals (SUNSHINE BROTHERS/VALVOLUX/THROMBUS). The music takes some retro-inspiration from boogie blues royalty like Canned Heat, John Lee Hooker, pre-Hollywood ZZ Top and early ACDC (as well as the obligatory champagne and reefer) but is fresh and built to make every bar and juke joint on the circuit get loose.
