Gabby Haze returns to the Gateway

The popular musical group Gabby Haze will perform at WTA’s Gateway on Saturday, June 2 at 8 p.m.

Americana, Folk Rock, and Blues all come together when Gabby Haze mixes tight harmonies and an unusual assortment of instruments including autoharp, sax, flute, acoustic guitar, keyboard, drums, harmonica, congas, various percussion instruments and stand up bass.

The result is a selection of original songs written by band members Dave Magnone and Dan Layman along with covers of The Beatles, John Prine, Arlo Guthrie, The Band, Bob Dylan, John Sebastian, Hootie Ledbetter, Steve Goodman and Hank Williams. 

Unlike other groups that play covers, they don’t try to sound like the original artists; they make the tunes in their own style.

The six members of Gabby Haze include Dave Magnone, guitar and vocals; Dan Layman, autoharp and vocals; Carl Bailey, sax, flute, keyboard and vocals; Bill Yetzer, harmonica and percussion; Jerry Fretwell, double bass; and Paul Cline, drums.

Tickets for the June 2 event are $10 and may be purchased online at or by calling 540-943-9999.  Remaining tickets will be available at the door.  Food and beverages available.
