Friends of Harvey

Friends of Harvey

 Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Shoot first, ask questions later!

We are a funk-rock, movie & TV theme lovin', classic rock, hip hop, jam, soul band and we don't take NO for an answer!

Bars, clubs, parties, parades, bar/bat mitzvahs, charitable events, private gigs, you name it, we'll play it. We make anything a party!


What is music? Why is music? How is music? The answers to these impertinent queries lie in the hands of Friends of Harvey. No, they can’t answer them but at least they know what their music smells like: hot bologna in a pet store.

With deft touch and note selection parsimony this subtle yet aggressive high energy honky funk dance party rock octet runs the musical gamut of all you’ve probably never heard but wish you had.

From Sharon Jones and The Dap Kings to Rush. From Electric Six to Phish. From Biggie Smalls to The Mighty Mighty Bosstones. From 80s TV Themes to Wolfmother, their setlist would be an unholy aural disgrace in the hands of lesser craftspeople.

Luckily Friends of Harvey has formed a union of allied musical tradespeople well versed in creating synchronized noise specially designed to get the junk in your trunk shakin’ and bakin’. By the end your skin might start flakin’ but your mind will awaken. We provide lotion. Alas, hair gel is supplied by request only.

Seared together from the four corners of the greater Boston area they found each other wandering the mystical halls of their open minds, or was it the halls of medicine? Seeking mentho-lyptus as well as answers to questions like “how much does a cloud weigh” and “is a pigeon a flying rat or is a rat a flightless pigeon” they endeavor to find each of these through music.

So let Friends of Harvey enter the fertile void of your mind. Let them occupy the space between your thoughts and get right at the heart of the pain cat inside of you. We mock it, stomping on its tail and pulling at its whiskers. Just relax and you won’t feel a thing.

How does the word “no” feel? The opposite of Friends of Harvey.

Push out the jive, bring in the love.
