Sarah Hayes Sarah Hayes

Vocalist and Bandleader, Sarah Hayes has been at the forefront of New York’s music scene for the last 15 years- Performing Jazz and Swinging Standards with numerous bands and orchestras, lighting up New York's finest Jazz Clubs with her vibrant voice, enormous repertoire and sunny personality.

Whether performances at the Montreal Jazz festival, luxury cruise ships, concerts, NY's famed 21 Club, repeat singing engagements for former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg, special events, touring the country with The Artie Shaw Orchestra, (A position once held by Billie Holiday), weekly engagements in NYC with dear friend, Grammy & Hall of Famer- Tony Middleton of “The Willows” and international performances with the legendary Duke Ellington Orchestra. Sarah brings the party to the party! ​ Entertaining for three world cruises - as well as the historic journey, “The Northwest Passage” onboard the Beautiful Crystal Serenity - Sarah has been wowing internationally with her music, song stylings and bubbly personality.

Sarah’s singing career started at the tender age of 5 when she belted out her own rendition of a bluesy tune, “Oh John the Rabbit” complete with backup singers. “When I heard the applause, I was hooked,” she says today of that childhood performance in her hometown of Monticello, FL. Her passion for singing and performing landed her as Marilyn Monroe in the Universal Studio’s Hollywood Legend’s show. At Universal and Disney’s MGM Studios, both in Orlando, she also sang as Carmen Miranda with her Latin Big Band and Disney's Hoop Dee Doo Revue Show.

“Sarah’s song stylings exude personality, she has charisma to spare. And with her innocent and unintentional naiveté, she wins the hearts of all who experience her performance”. ~ Michael Andrew, Bandleader, Broadway Producer

“Sarah has a vibrant and exciting voice~ a beautiful tone, she's a throwback to the 1940s. Her penchant for comedic interplay livens up the dullest occasions. But when she sings the occasional ballad, she leaves the listener mesmerized”. ~ New York music producer Charles Carlini

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
