Object Heavy

Object Heavy is Northern California’s hardest hitting Soul sensation. While based in Arcata, this cast of musical characters has made waves up and down the North Coast of California, the Pacific Northwest, and various parts of the United States, as well as being voted best band in Humboldt, three out of five years nominated, including 2022.

Fast forward to today, Object Heavy has hit the studio and cooked up a new album produced by Kelly Finnigan (Monophonics), showing off their progressive yet soulful sound. The band is proud to partner with Color Red Music to release this record in Fall 2022.

With powerhouse vocalist Richard Love at the helm, and backed by Brian Swislow (keys), Leo Plummer(gtr), Ian Taylor(bass), and Sam Kaplan-Good(drums), Object Heavy is heading into the future in celebration of their new album, “Love & Gravity”.

Object Heavy’s magnetic blend of classic Cadillac soul, effortlessly contagious dance grooves, vocal harmonies and blazing musicianship is ripe for a live experience you don’t want to miss.

The Graduating Class 

The Graduating Class describes themselves as "H&M R&B from Portland." Their latest release is a cover of The Police's "Driven To Tears." According to KWVA, 

"The Graduating Class sound like what would happen if Childish Gambino and Daryl Hall went on a three week bender that ended in Quincy Jones’ studio. The indie R&B group formed in June of 2018, initially as the duo of multi-instrumentalist John Queant and drummer Nate Hansen. The band quickly grew into a five piece: the lineup currently consists of Natty Burmeister on vocals and keys, Keenan Dorn on guitar, and August King, also on keys.

Stylistically, the Graduating Class is rooted in the blend of digital and analog instruments. Their songwriting process begins with just a keyboard and drum machine, but a finished song typically boasts layers of guitar, percussion and vocals. The band’s tracks show off a

variety of influences, ranging from Latin-inspired R&B to gospel-tinged indie pop. Following a summer and fall of shows, the Graduating Class holed up in a Portland studio to begin work on their debut record."


The W.O.W. Hall will comply with all COVID-19 Guidelines issued by the State of Oregon and the CDC at the time of the event. This may entail limitations on capacity that might be lower than the number of tickets sold and/or event cancellation.
