Bruce Hayes

 

One-Maniac-Band, Bruce Hayes plays a blend of musical styles he refers to as “Rhythm and Celtgrass”. Once called “the Jimi Hendrix of the Mandolin”, Hayes also incorporates Guitar, Dobro, and his latest invention, StratoBassto into the mix as well as his signature mutant clogging. Collaborating with The String Cheese Incident and Acoustic Junction in the 90s, Hayes helped define the acoustic jam band sound. He has released 5 albums to date. Clark Roberts of the Salida Cafe says, “Bruce is among the most talented artists to play at the cafe. He has become an icon. Bound full of energy, his music soars. Fusing genres, challenging boundaries with stunning musicianship, a performance never to be missed.”
