A small crowd gathered at Lestat’s on Saturday night to welcome Haley Dreis, a small town girl who moved to Nashville to pursue her music dream. A bubbly young woman with a charming personality and big blue eyes, Haley immediately welcomed the audience as she giggled and spoke casually. Promoting her third album, Lady with a Rocket, she has begun touring the west coast heading north with Small Town Gossip and made her second appearance in San Diego. The music Haley produces is filled with happy melodies, sweet love stories, puppies, candy, sugar and spice, and everything nice. Its music that makes you bounce and leaves the participants heading home still singing. The show was a feel good moment and Haley was the tour guide. She handed out kazoos to the audience, encouraged sing-alongs and clapping, and even tried some new techniques just to see how it went. The hour long set went quickly and after the show a barefoot Haley slipped on her flip flops and handed out hugs and a warm smile to her fans that came to support this lady with a rocket.
