Hayley’s 25th Anniversary Block Party
Sunday, Dec. 18, at 3 p.m.
Hayley’s Bar, 278 Dauphin St., 251-433-4970
A quarter of a century ago, the concept of the Lower Dauphin Entertainment District had yet to be pondered, but a handful of local restaurants and watering holes were laying the foundation. It was then that multi-Nappie Award winner Hayley’s Bar opened its doors.
Since pouring its first shot, this LoDa dive’s socially relaxed atmosphere has pulled in a multitude of patrons, many of them now seasoned regulars. To celebrate 25 years of business, Hayley’s is hosting what could be the city’s most legendary block party.
Even though it’s not a music venue, Hayley’s late-night hours have made it the regular post-gig haunt for many local musicians. With this in mind, this downtown establishment will be accenting its celebration with three of the Azalea City’s most beloved musical acts.
Singer-songwriter Gregg Fells, a versatile singer-writer who has filled his catalog with everything from soulful acoustic ballads to fiery blues rock anthems, will kick off the celebration. During Hayley’s early days, it served as the veritable clubhouse of Azalea City punk legends The Vomit Spots, making their inclusion in the day’s lineup almost obligatory.
Mob Towne Revival will reunite to serve as the block party’s headliner. This musical collective’s mix of eclectic jams and hip-hop vocal work should provide the perfect coda to the ultimate Sunday Funday in downtown Mobile.
