Alan Haynes – a killer guitarist and a soulful singer, deeply dedicated to the Blues…and also he just happens to be a nice guy.
It was in the early 70’s – Alan was about 16 – when he was standing at the crossroads and had to choose his way. He made up his mind and hit the road of Blues … and he “knew that there was no turning back.”
Alan’s first professional effort started in the late 70’s when he joined the “Texas Boogie Band” and soon became the front man and leader of the band. None other than former Johnny Winter’s sideman Tommy Shannon played bass. He later reached fame as part of Stevie Ray Vaughan’s “Double Trouble”. The “Texas Boogie Band” got lot of radio play and became the house band at the Texas Opry House.
In 1995, Alan released his second album, “Wishing Well”, with help from “Double Trouble”, Reese Wynans, Tommy Shannon and Chris Layton along with old “Thunderbirds” Preston Hubbard and George Rains. This album received great reviews in many magazines all over the world and led to a featured article in the “Guitar Player Magazine”,
