Mick Hayes is the quintessential young front man the music industry was built on. With his sharp dressed attitude and his “born lucky” charm, Mick is sculpting the sound of Contemporary Blues and R&B today with powerful vocals and extraordinary guitar playing. Mick holds the homegrown skills that pass through all of the Blues sub-categories in one show.

Mick has preformed in front of huge crowds numbering in the upper 20,000’s and opened for bands such as The Doobie Brothers, Peter Fampton, Dickie Betts, Los Lonely Boys, Dave Mason, Robin Trower, Cheap Trick, Duke Robillard and many more. Mick has shared the stage alongside the industries finest including: Gary Mallaber, Michael Burkes, Tony Galla, Smokin Joe Kubek, Joe Bonamassa, Will McFarlane and several more.

In 2011 Mick Hayes had the honor of returning home to be inducted into the “Buffalo Music Hall of Achievement” as a solo artist, and also for the work he has done with his band. He added these awards alongside the many others that are now all part of an extensive list of career accomplishments he has obtained over a short period of time.

Alongside of being a nationally published writer, Mick’s unmatched voice can be heard on a number of regional Radio and Television commercials.

In summer 2012 Mick Hayes began proudly endorsing Fuchs Audio Technology and Plush FX which quickly turned into a great opportunity opening for Cheap Trick because Rick Nielsen is also an endorser. Mick is playing their flagship amplifier ‘The Overdrive Supreme’. Mick Hayes was chosen to be a representing artist for Fuchs at this year’s NAMM show 2012. In addition to this, Mick was selected by the board at NAMM to perform on stage for the musician filled Anaheim Civic Center.

Currently Mick is home in Buffalo, NY in celebration over being recently married and the release of the long awaited solo album Recovery that was three years in the making. The Mick Hayes Band is planning & routing a northeast tour schedule starting in spring-fall 2012 in support of their recent endorsements and new CD release. They will be recording a series of live shows at festivals and seated venues for DVD to be released in 2013.

Mick Hayes is the top class, hard working, entertaining front man that continues to influence the music scene all over the Nation. His lively guitar playing and liquid vocals create a bigger fan base at the end of every song and strike of every note.

We are happy Mick has chosen a Kenai Tier 2 in Hickoryburst to express his musicality and chops on stage and in the studio.
