Southern Tour Highlights!!! LiveMusicDaily Article! Gypsy Sally’s Live Audio!

Hayley Jane & The Primates are back home after a great first trip below the Mason-Dixon line! We had a blast exploring NC, SC, GA, VA, and DC! We met a lot of new friends and can’t wait to come back South! We will definitely be back to Virginia July 26-30th for Floyd Fest with Thievery Corporation, Steel Pulse, Keller Williams, Turkuaz, and many more!

During this tour, Hayley Jane & The Primates set a band record for the most shows we have ever played in a row! 11 shows to be exact! Every show was incredibly special, but we’d like to share some highlights of the trip for us!

We had a great time joining McLovins for a few shows on the Southern run, but Atlanta was an especially good hang with the McLovins boys! Atticus joined us on keys for a lively version of Ramble on Rose by the Grateful Dead! Thanks to Bret Peretz of livemusicdaily.com for a great write-up about the night! Bret had this to say about the band, “Thursday night a storm came through Atlanta, not one of wind and rain but a force of nature much stronger. If you aren’t familiar with Hayley Jane and The Primates, stop what you are doing and get to know them immediately! Coming from Boston with Berklee roots (and chops), the band has been doing its thing for just under five years now and has clearly found their sound” check out the full article and a snippet of Ramble On Rose with Atticus of McLovins here!

We also had the pleasure of meeting Col. Bruce Hampton at the famed Charleston Pour House! Not only did the legendary venue far exceed our expectations, but Col. Bruce was the coolest and we had a great time getting to meet him! The Primate party at The Pour House in Raleigh was also a highlight! We love playing with the Primate Fiasco and had an great time playing with their accordion player Drake on our song “Madame Humphrey.” The Pour House Music Hall in Raleigh also has one of the coolest sound guys we have ever met! Thanks Jack!

There are so many things to say about the trip, but one thing is for sure! We will definitely be back down South soon and can’t to see all of our new friends! Here’s a link to audio from our show at Gypsy Sally’s in Washington DC! Hope to see you soon in your favorite local venue! https://soundcloud.com/will-urquhart/sets/hayley-jane-and-the-primates-at-gypsy-sallys-2242017
