For fans of Hayseed Dixie’s and John Wheeler’s original work the ‘No Covers Solo Show’ will see John perform original Hayseed Dixie songs alongside his own new material, including tracks off his latest album ‘Difficult #2 Album’. A seasoned performer, having performed more than 1, 000 live shows in 31 countries with Hayseed Dixie, John describes his current musical approach as ‘acoustic-electric, jazz-punk, riding on the back of some old-school folk-funk.’
