THE BAY COLLECTIVE Big Band is an ensemble made up of some of Byron Bay's best musicians, led by powerhouse Hayley Grace. With a full horn section ontop of an epic rhythm section, these guys are full power.
The group is made of 6 different bands with 6 lead singers which means The Collective can make some noise! Funk, RnB, Soul, Reggae and Hip Hop are the flavours of this crew and with such an eclectic gathering of incredible musicians, there have a style of their own.
The Bay Collective was created by Hayley Grace in 2017 after an epic jam session between friends on her back deck overlooking the farmlands behind Byron Bay. Byron is known for its rich, diverse and close nit musical community and seeing an opportunity to create a super band full of some of Byron's best musos, Hayley got everyone together and its been good vibes ever since.
In 2018, Hayley Grace & The Bay Collective made their festival debut on the Crossroads Stage at the 29th Annual Bluesfest.
This dynamic big band has a huge selection of both covers and originals and caters for festivals & weddings as well as corporate and special events throughout Australia, Asia Pacific and beyond.
