Band: Live with Veet feat. Johnny Hayes
Date: Thursday, March 4 at 8 p.m.
Venue: Veet’s Bar, 66 S. Royal St., 251-694-3090
This installment of Live with Veet will combine the talents of longtime scene veteran Doug “Veet” Previto and singer-songwriter Johnny Hayes. After honing his craft in Nashville and establishing his band, Johnny Hayes & the Loveseats, Hayes auditioned for NBC’s vocal talent competition “The Voice.” While his first audition on season 11 of “The Voice” proved unsuccessful, he found himself advancing in the competition in season 12. After returning to the Gulf Coast, Johnny Hayes & the Loveseats signed with Skate Mountain Records and released a self-titled debut. Since then, he has used his rootsy rock and soul to win a dedicated following.
Hayes recently took his Southern soul into the depths of a smoky honky-tonk with live footage of the band doing “Rosé and Cigarettes.” This whiskey-soaked ballad could be considered the spiritual sibling of The Rolling Stones’ cult hit “Far Away Eyes.” Ultimately, this gem of a track fits perfectly in Hayes’ shiny musical crown.
