HAYWIRE is a fun-loving party band with a show that's relevant for all ages and settings. From Wedding receptions to the main stage at the South's largest country music concert hall, high-energy shows keep the dance floor packed. More than 'just' country and southern rock, Haywire plays variety favorites that are sure to satisfy a wide variety of guests. Backed by professional musicians, Haywire is fronted by Jason Carver and Laurie Phillips. Because Haywire has both male and female vocalists, you can expect that much more range and variety! Jason and Laurie create a light-hearted atmosphere during their shows that have even the most reluctant of guests joining in!

Look at what they've been saying!

"Haywire topped the list of bands our daughter came up with for her wedding reception, and we were lucky they were available to come to Birmingham for us. From the start, they were responsive, and flexible on music/timing/special requests. They gave us great ideas for the set (including an original song for mom/son dance that was excellent). They were on time and ready to go as planned. But most of all, their talent and tightness as a band coupled with their ability to professionally and personably interact with their audience kept the dance floor full all the way to the finish. We will look forward to another chance to see them play!" - Mike M. 6/22/13

Everything was amazing last night! Thank you, thank you! Please pass our appreciation to the band. It was perfect! -Havird & Brooke, 6/17/12

Haywire was absolutely amazing! They have perfect voices and there were moments in the night where I didnt realize it was them and not the DJ!! So fun, interactive, and personable. Truly made my wedding night special and the most fun it could be!!! Love them! -Shannon G, 8/6/2011

We can't thank Haywire enough for how awesome they made our reception!! Not only were they great performs, they really are outstanding people. They loved getting the crowd involved and getting them out there to dance! They really had a great variety of music, they also learned a song for our first dance and did an amazing job! Everybody at our reception has not stopped talking about our band! We are so glad we found them on gigmaster and if we ever have another big event we will def. be giving them a call!! We would definitely recommend Haywire to any of our friends and family!! Thank you again for making our wedding reception unbelievable and unforgettable!-Lauren S, 6/18/2011

Haywire was the most amazing choice that we could have gone with for our wedding!! They were incredible and it speaks volumes that when the band had to stop the crowd boo-ed - they wanted more. Jason was a pleasure to deal with, both in person and over email! They were so incredibly accommodating and all of our guests (even the ones who weren't country music fans) were out on the dance floor cutting up the rug! Thank you thank you thank you for providing the music for the best day of mine and my new husband's life!! I suggest them to EVERYONE! I promise you will not be disappointed if you go with them. -Lauren S, 4/30/2011

Thank you Jason, Laurie and everyone else for an amazing performance last weekend at our party (May 1st)! You all were truely awesome and everyone at the party just loved you!!! I am trying to figure out a way to have another party just to have you all come and play. --Lisa E. 5/1/10

Haywire was fantastic. Our group of guests was a "rolling" crowd that were making their way to and from other hospitality suites. Jason and Laurie were wonderful and the entire band delivered! Our night was high energy and lots of fun. Thank you to everyone from Haywire! -- Vicki B, Orlando, FL, 10/5/2009

These guys were Friendly, Talented and Easy to work with. They are also "Superb Dancers" which was a wonderful bonus we were not expecting! I can't wait to hire them again. -- John T, Atlanta, GA, 8/7/2009

A really great performance, you guys at your best. Well worth the two hours & fifteen minutes each way trip. Leonard C, Georgia,7/24/10
