You obviously don’t need convincing if you heard their performance in KUTX’s Studio 1A this afternoon. You heard for yourself. Seratones is owning it.

Songwriter and powerhouse vocalist A.J. Haynes is at the helm of this awesome multi-talented Shreveport outfit. And, while the band has roots in rock and punk, there’s now an injection of unmistakable classic soul – as in, Motown/Stax/Daptone-level soul. It may well have been the band’s time touring with the late great Charles Bradley that inspired Haynes to connect with a stronger soul side, and rightly so. But there’s an overall mixture of all these styles that make it distinctly Seratones.

Do not miss Seratones show tonight at Stubb’s indoor venue, 801 Red River. Doors open at 9 p.m., and the music kicks off with Austin artist Lainey Gonzales. So very recommended.
