"Big, built-for-the-stadium kind of jams." That's how Avan Lava lead singer Tom "TC" Hennes describes the Brooklyn-based electro-pop group's party-centric sound. It's known for bringing that energy to its frenetic live show as well. "They'll blow every penny they make to bring in lasers, smoke machines and confetti cannons," says manager Tara Perkins of Hard Land Management. "It's an incredible experience for the audience." Fan fun became a focus of the band early on. In 2009, multi-instrumentalist Ian Pai and producer/musician Le Chev met while touring with Fischerspooner.
