BROUGHT TO YOU IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE SUNSHINE COAST COUNCIL, QUEENSLAND GOVERNMENT, ALEXANDRA HEADLAND SURF LIFESAVING CLUB, TRADER TAG AND LIFETIME LIFESTYLE.
Infusing the flavours of Funk, Jazz, Afro-beat and the underlaying dance beats of the Reggae nations - The Hayden Hack Infusion honours the musical journeys of their travelling namesake. Hailing from South Africa, Hayden Hack has travelled the world playing his own brand of Funky Rootsy high spirited, high vibrational music. From some of South Africa's finest venues to busking in the UK and Asia, Hayden Hack has watched the world from a viewpoint that only an artisan can, and is writing songs that represent his experiences of the emotional and cultural influences of these interactions.
Always holding a love for Australia from his many visits, Hayden has now settled in Queensland where he lives with his Wife and family in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. He now delivers the music of his traveling stories with his new band and friends, Mitch Ruggles (Bass), Wayne Reid (Drums), Steve Mcleish(Percussion and midi madness) and Paddy Kiernan (Acoustic Guitar).
"There has been a unifying of musical passions and a strengthened belief that has vitalised the songs and can only be achieved in this group dynamic. It has taken the music to another level of depth and delivery and given it a unifying crispness. It is also just a great privilege to be playing music with these talented people" says Hayden. If you enjoy all shapes and colours of music - then you are sure to be inspired by the pure blend of talent and the broad sonic palette that is The Hayden Hack Infusion.
Band members - Hayden Hack, Mitch Ruggles, Paddy Kiernan, Wayne Ried, Steve Mcliesh, Jimmy Halliday and Lee Hardisty
