ONE SHOW ONLY– 7:30pm. Rusty Hayes is an exuberant crooner, raised in the Atlanta area. He grew up surrounded by a rich mixture of soul stirring music and great story telling. He would listen intently as a child when the adults described the antics that went on at parties when such songs as Saturday Night Fish Fry by Louis Jordan, were jumping. Equally fascinating and moving was the classic and contemporary gospel music that was everywhere in his formative years. Jazz, Soul and Rock also shaped his musical landscape as Atlanta became a more multicultural city. He started writing poetry and songs as a teenager. That was also about the time that he joined the Stone Mountain Male Chorus, a gospel group founded in his neighborhood.
