The Gesa Power House Theatre is continuing its popular Spotlight Series concerts with a one-night performance by Sean Hayes on September 21 at 8:00 pm. This will be the third concert in the Spotlight Series, following sold out performances by L.A.-based all female rock group Raining Jane in February, and Canadian piano virtuoso and vocalist Michael Kaeshammer in March.
Hayes is a San Francisco-based singer-songwriter whose raw, down-home music features simple and straightforward instrumentation surrounding his warm, vibrato-laden voice. Hayes cites various influences from the soul, folk, R&B, reggae, and gospel worlds such as Otis Redding, James Brown, Joni Mitchell, Nina Simone and Bob Marley. Over the years, Hayes' songs have been re-mixed by DJ Mark Farina ("Dream Machine"), covered by folk group The Be Good Tanya's ("A Thousand Tiny Pieces"), been featured on HBO's "Bored to Death", and used in a TV ad campaign for Subaru ("Powerful Stuff"). He sang a duet on Aimee Mannís latest record and has toured with acts such as Ani DiFranco and the Cold War Kids.
