Haystax started as a “one-time-only-gig-among-friends” at a local jam session in 1999. The crowd wanted more, so the band was born. What followed was a CD, and concerts in Germany, UK, New Zealand. Haystax also supported Cuby & the Blizzards, and the Supremes, and were supported by Tavares, the Three Degrees and Eddie Floyd on their first album. Lately, Haystax performes a lot as featuring artist with fullsize orchestra’s. They played with the Royal Dutch Military Wind Orchestra “Johan Willem Friso”. At this moment, the Haystax are working on their 2nd CD.
