"David Hayes has transformed the culture of the Downtown Panama City and St. Andrews Historic areas, he has coached multiple performers into professional careers, guiding them with his understanding of the industry, and creating opportunities to showcase their talents. He has been a pillar of the music community in the coastal region, performing at music venues (and producing shows and talent showcase events) on both coasts. He is well-known in the 30A performance circuit and has been sought out by business owners, promoters and producers, even being asked to consult in the pre-construction phase of the Pier Park project, Panama City Beach's premier shopping and entertainment destination. Serving the Panama City Beach and 30A community, this outdoor complex boasts 124 stores, ranging from clothing for the whole family to home goods, shoes and jewelry. Hayes' management style is geared toward coaching and teaching, and his prior employees have expressed their excitement and anticipation to work with him again in his new ventures whatever they may be."

Still working on that hot first release.



David Joseph Hayes grew up in the boatyards of Fort Lauderdale and Panama City, Florida. The middle child of three and The Son of a Sailor, Hayes' father worked the yards for over 40 years. They lived on sailboats, house boats in or out of the water. On weekends, as well, as on many weekdays around 5:30 pm boat folks begin to gather on the docks. It was on those docks that Hayes first heard the fisherman's and sailor's tales in song.

Years later... while on his own life adventure as a writer, actor, songwriter and all around entertainer that took him through Boston, NYC, San Diego, SF, Seattle, London, Paris and eventually back home to visit his family on the Gulf of Mexico. It is there that he didn't so much as put his ambitions at bay but he rediscovered home. He soon become a catalyst for cultivating the local culture, performing music, theatre and producing shows. The rest is history.
