Rockland County's premiere 70's retro band "Huggy Bear & the Sweathogs" have been performing music in the county for the last 16 years. The band carved out it's niche performing classic 70's and 80's dance music by KC & The Sunshine Band, The Bee Gee's, Chic, Barry White, Donna Summer and much more. "Huggy Bear" is more then just a name; the band actually features a lead singer clad in a full bear costume. Erik Walker's notorious singing bear character has been delighting audiences since the band's inception.

Huggy Bear & The Sweathogs have had a long musical career spanning 16 years, performing regularly in the Tri-State area since their debut in 1990. The band have outlasted many of the venues they've performed in! While most recently making their home at Joe & Joe's, they have also held regular residences at Chubby McGuire's in Orangeburg (formerly "The Orangeburg Tavern"), Fordy's in Nanuet (Formerly "The Triangle Pub" and "C&D's"), and Steve's Marina in Haverstraw. They frequently play events for the various Rockland County Fire Departments, including most recently the Congers Fire Parade. In addition, they have participated in numerous benefit functions for the Police and Fire Departments.
