AJ Haynes, frontwoman of the Shreveport-based rock group Seratones, is featured on the cover of the 2019 Official Visitors’ Guide to Shreveport Bossier. She was photographed onstage at The Strand Theatre by photographer Jennifer Robison. Haynes and her bandmates draw from Shreveport-Bossier’s deep connections to rock n’ roll, soul, gospel and country to create a sound all their own.  “There’s a lot more than meets the eye here,” Haynes said of Shreveport-Bossier’s musical past and present.

In the behind-the-scenes of the cover shoot video below, you’ll hear about Shreveport-Bossier’s music scene from AJ Haynes and two other local musicians, Amanda Tamaccio of Star Chamber and songwriter Jeremy Hurst. Check out these soulful artists at various restaurants and nightclubs in Shreveport-Bossier.
