HAAM Day is a nationally recognized musical celebration that helps keep music alive and well in Austin. Free to the public, HAAM Day is a great way to experience the incredible musical talent that Austin boasts, and a unique opportunity to get to know the musicians behind the music.   

The Health Alliance for Austin Musicians encourages Austinites to head out and enjoy a music showcase or spend the day shopping and eating at participating stores and restaurants, many of which will donate up to 5 percent (or more) of their daily proceeds to HAAM. Many events are family friendly! Supporters should keep an eye out for the black HAAM donation boxes where they can make monetary donations to help keep Austin music alive and well.

Biography

Sometimes you want to lose yourself in music that sounds alluringly warm, impeccably played, and irresistibly moves the booty. Fronted by dynamic, UK-born lead siren Kate Priestley (KP), the Austin-based band creates a highly innovative and richly enticing sound, featuring a command of R&B, funk, jazz, and hip-hop. Their high-energy live performances are infectiously danceable and inspire even good children to shake their moneymakers.

KP and the Boom Boom released their debut album ‘The Brave in the fall of 2016 delivering an epic next-generation neo-soul album of universal sound seduction and astute social commentary.

Music has been an essential part of KP’s life since she was a child, when she played lead roles in musical theater productions. She attended a performing arts school as a teenager, but it wasn’t until she was backpacking around India in 2007 that she realized music was her true calling. Rediscovering her voice, she played at open mic gigs in Guatemala and followed her creative spark to Austin, eventually hooking up with fellow passionate music freaks who could match her diversity in taste and depth of spirit.

After being heralded as a Band to Watch by Austin Fusion Magazine and The Horn, Austin City Limits Festival selected KP and the Boom Boom for an Official ACL Late Night Show in 2015. Shortly thereafter, they were chosen to support Snoop Dogg at ACL Live Moody Theater and were selected as a SXSW 2016 Official Showcasing Artist. They continue to stir up a buzz with a multitude of energetic performances releasing their highly anticipated debut full-length album, The Brave, in autumn 2016. They will be headlining the Nightfall Concert Series in Chattanooga, TN on August 25th 2017.
