From Press Reports
Bryan Hayes and The Retrievers will bring their signature sound and honest storytelling to The Pine Tree Music Festival on June 7 at 4:45 p.m. Touring in preparation for their upcoming third album, Let’s Ride, BH&R shows have been igniting stages throughout the Southeast. This band loves American music, loves playing live, and loves their audiences.
Given that BH&R have been consistently touring the Southeast for the last two years, it is no surprise that they have become one of the region’s top live bands. BH&R headline and perform festivals, concert halls, clubs, bistros, coffee houses, house concerts, and everything in between.
