Voodoo Q&A: Seratones

After captivating their audience at the South Corse stage with a high energy performance, we sat down and talked with Seratones’ AJ Haynes. Seratones are a band from Shreveport, and were excited to be stopping here as part of a North American tour.

DIG: Your live performances are so upbeat and full of energy. Do you all take any inspiration from other artists for your live shows?

AJ Haynes: I really love Iggy Pop. He’s one of my all time favorite performers. I love Josh Home. He’s not very high energy, but he’s got this whole debonair thing. I love Kathleen Hanna as well. Also, one of my favorites is Tina Turner.

DIG: You mentioned that you guys had been working on something recently. Can you tell me a little bit about that and how it’s going?

Haynes: We just put out a song on Amazon as part of their acoustic compilation. It’s called “By and By.” It’s really different than what we usually do, which is why it was a lot of fun. It sort of threw me back to my singer songwriter days.

DIG: I know that you guys are from Shreveport. How does it feel to be back in the state and performing here?

Haynes: I love my state. I love being home.

DIG: Voodoo has changed quite a bit this year. How has your Voodoo experience been so far?

Haynes: It’s been a blur, but a very good blur. Everyone that we’ve come in contact with has been pleasant and super amazing.

DIG: This show is part of a larger tour, how has that been going?

Haynes: We’ve loved it. I’ve always wanted to travel, and I feel like being a touring musician is the best way to see the world if you don’t have a ton of money. It’s such a privilege. We’re so lucky to be able to be doing it and live doing this.
