Info + bookings

Haystax started as a “one-time-only-gig-among-friends” at a local jam session in 1999. The crowd wanted more, and a band was born. Our first CD “Showdown in Motor City” featured the Three Degrees and Eddie Floyd on vocals,  and after extensive touring in Germany, the UK and New Zealand the CD was released in the USA.

The second CD is called “Gold” and features both Tavares and the Supremes as guest vocalists. In the summer of 2015 the Haystax toured the southern states of the USA, with performances at the Folkfestival in Natchitotches, Louisiana and the world famous W.C Handyfestival in Florence, Alabama, amongst others.

The Haystax not only play gigs as main- or support act, they also perform as guests with fullsize orchestra’s, such as the Royal Dutch Military Wind Orchestra “Johan Willem Friso”. Please check our YouTube video’s for an impression of what Haystax is.
