“As the first set unfolded, Dwayne revealed different features of his impressive voice, slowly rolling out the breadth and depth of his stylistic reach, adjusting not just for song styles but also for the changing line-up of instruments involved. For sure, I’ll get out to hear Dwayne again; the longer I listened, the more intrigued I became by his skills.”
Dwayne Haggins brings a smooth style of old country blues and soul. He recently got together with Baxter Hall to form Haggins Hall Band. Together, along with bassist Will Woyda, they do many classic covers while at the same time, mixing in some original music. Inspired by legends such as Waylon Jennings, Ray Charles, and Michael Jackson, there's really no specific genre Haggins Hall Band falls into. With his band, and as a solo act, Dwayne will go from a straight country tune like "Hey Good Looking" by Hank Williams, into a classic soulful song such as "A Change Is Gonna Come" by Sam Cooke. Dwayne's originals display his love for these 2 genres by vocally showing the soulful side, while having more of a country guitar picking style.
