Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jimi Hendrix & Alan Haynes

Alan Haynes brings the Blues to Ginny's Little Longhorn honky tonk in Austin

A member of the Antone’s blues club house band for six years in the 1990s, Alan Haynes has played with blues greats ranging from Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Lee Hooker and John Mayall to Otis Rush, Albert Collins and Johnny Winter (who he cites as a major inspiration).

with John McAfee bass and drummer Nico Leophonte

Haynes plays a regular Sunday evening weekly gig at Maggie Mae’s Club in downtown Austin and – recently – every first and third  Wednesdays at Ginny’s Little Longhorn, the funky country honky tonk in central Austin.

Haynes has fun playing right up to appreciative folks in the audience who can watch his fingers glide close up.

Alan bought this guitar from Stevie Ray Vaughan in 1985 -- Alan honors it with his deft picking. Haynes' shows include right on covers of Jimi Hendrix songs like "Voodoo Child."

His website is being bolstered and looks promising. Haynes is also on Facebook and myspace.
