HIBF 2023 is turning out to be a family affair! Opening the festival on the same day their father is closing is Hearty Har, the band led by brothers Shane and Tyler Fogerty, who both play guitar and contribute vocals. Participating in father John’s Fogerty’s Factory project during the pandemic, the brothers were of course raised in a household of music. They even toured with their father, playing in his band. Although the ‘family brand’ set the bar high when they decided to branch out on their own, that’s no problem for the siblings and the other members of their band. Yes, their music borrows heavily from the classic rock era of the ‘60s and ‘70s, but they are certainly doing their own thing. This psychedelic rock band from Los Angeles, California was founded in 2012 and has come to be known for their exciting and raucous live shows, which blend modern psychedelia with classic garage rock and roll. Their latest album, Radio Astro, was released in 2021.
