Heather Hayes Experience

Daughter of music legend Isaac Hayes, Heather Hayes and her 11 piece Atlanta-based band have a diverse R&B sound, mixing in soul and funk. The high energy show is a consistent crowd pleaser, with great vocals, stunning costumes and a first rate horn section. Heather spent the first 5 years of her professional career on tour with James Brown (she started with him at age 18 and was his featured female vocalist and choreographer for 5 years), Michael Jackson and Beyonce’ Knowles and she’s recorded and/or appeared in videos with Sean “P-Diddy” Combs, Brian McKnight, TLC, Jadakiss and The Baha Men.

The guys in the band have many impressive credits of their own and have recorded and toured with artists like Madonna, Cameo, Bobby Brown, George Clinton, India Arie and Whitney Houston extensively throughout the United States, Europe and Asia.

Sorry, no pets allowed.Heather has taken the crowd-pleasing formula of her professional experience and combined it with a soul-stirring band for a combination that’s simply outstanding.
