Drummerboy Featuring Rb Stone says
Jeff "Drummerboy" Hayes
Known by his peers as one of the best blues brothers on the circuit, Jeff Hayes has been banging his drums on a dozen recordings with five different bands that included top talent from Washington, Oregon, Mississippi, Colorado and the U.K. You can find him lending his beat, plus songwriting & lead vocal credits on many pressings over the years.

Playing live is where Jeff is home and he has graced the stages of the major festivals in the Pacific NW and several national festivals including the San Felipe Blues Festival in San Felipe Mexico, King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena, AK and the Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland, OR. He has played along side such greats such as the late Pinetop Perkins, Michael Burke, Bob Margolin, Mookie Brill, Peter Damann, Eden Brent, John-Alex Mason, Robbie Jordan and Eric “Two Scoops” Moore.

RB Stone has traveled the world performing in 32 countries on five continents. 23 of those countries RB entertained mostly US service men and women as well as Japanese, Korean and Nato troops. He’s been awarded an honorary member of Fighter Squadron MALS 12, and many other military organizations. He keeps busy writing, recording and touring. He’s released 16 albums throughout his career from Country and Country Rock to Southern Rock and Americana. In 2010 he set his sights on the Roots Rock and Blues world. Stone focused his considerable songwriting skills on the passion, darkness, heartbreak, and tragedy that are the blues with the release of Lonesome Travelers Blues in 2011. The stories and life experiences started early for Stone. Just out of high school, music was still a distant dream so he hired on with the Railroad. There he traveled the Midwest with a 90-man rail gang while living in a 10-man camp car. His life and career have taken many twists and turns–since those early beginnings–including being a cowboy and jet pilot. Blues music has always been a part of his life from jamming on his mother’s piano, to writing and recording his first blues song, “Fairweather Friends” in 1985–featured on Lonesome Travelers Blues. Stone’s latest release, Loosen Up, was produced by multi-Grammy winning Producer Tom Hambridge (Buddy Guy, James Cotton, George Thorogood, etc.) and nominated for Blues Blast Magazine’s Rock Blues Album of the Year in 2014. The project features ten tracks of original tunes with five tracks written by Stone, four co-written with Tom Hambridge, and one with long-time friend and multi-Grammy winning Producer, Ray Kennedy. Loosen Up remained 8 months in the Root Music Report chart and crossed over to The Americana Alternate Route chart establishing solid global airplay with praises and reviews from most of the major music magazines, including No Depression, Blues Music Magazine, Blues Blast, Elmore and Blues Bytes.
