LORETTA'S ARTIST OF WEEK 1/26/15
The Greater Boston music scene is so close-knit it’s not exactly a surprise when various members of different bands jam, collaborate and support one another in different combinations. Every so often, however, an actual new band emerges from those collaborations – and in the case of Double D and the Haymakers, is something worth pursuing beyond one-offs and special occasions. The band pairs two staples of the Boston music scene: David DeLuca of Highway Ghosts and Ward Hayden of Girls Guns and Glory. Joining them in the Haymakers are drummer Josh Kiggans, bassist Greg Loughman and multi-instrumentalist Steve Latanision, who plays pedal steel, fiddle and mandolin.
