Wally Haynes first came to Atlanta with a group from Virginia called The New Dixie Line. "We recorded at the Bill Lowery Studio in Brookhaven and soon became the in-house studio keyboardist." Over the years Wally recorded with Tommy Roe, Billy Joe Royal, Dennis Yost, Ray Whitley, The Tams, The Pointer Sisters, Clarence Carter, Freddie Weller, Razzy Bailey, Sammi Jo, and many more. Wally performed locally, consistently playing with various bands over the years, mainly Ben Dover and Tennessee Tucker. They were the house band at Miss Kittys in Marietta for several years. "I took some time off from music to pursue other interests, but I am back with renewed excitement. I am really excited to be playing with The Mike Watson Band." The Mike Watson Band is proud to have Wally on board!
