Bryan Hayward



Bryan Hayward is a multi-instrumentalist and singer originally from West Virginia, currently a long-time New Jersey resident. He started playing in cover bands at 17 and original bands while studying music at Mason Gross / Rutgers College. Bryan was in a successful STARS club band in the 90s (with Richard Rodriguez also of, “Almost Santana). He played in several bands as a vocalist and guitarist in the early 2000’s. Currently, he plays in Almost Santana as Keyboardist. As a singer-songwriter, he has released several albums. Most recently his album, Oh Buoy, is available from Aluminaire Music on Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Music, and other platforms. Bryan loves all kinds of music and is excited to play the music of Santana with, “Almost Santana”. This band has some of the best musicians I’ve ever played with. From the classics Santana played for the first time at Woodstock through the hits of the last two decades, it’s exciting to recreate this music for All Ages.
