Steve Haydon

We are very excited to announce that Steve Haydon has joined Afterglow as our new keyboardist from 2021.

Steve started playing piano at the age of 10 and later studied as a classical organist, performing at the cathedrals of Exeter, Gloucester and Wells.

It was whie studying at Dartington College of Arts in 1979 that Steve was introduced to the music of Genesis through the album And Then there were Three, leading to a life-long love of both the band and prog rock in general.

As a performimg musician, Steve worked though much of the eighties in residencies at various Pontins holiday centres, backing many well known stars of the day in cabaret.

Later, keyboard duties in the blues rock outfit The Tommy Joe Stewart Band were interpersed with work in musical theatre, particularly in the shows "West End Showstoppers" and "Showtoppers", which toured extensively throughout the UK and Europe.

Since 2010, Steve has been a part of the succesful Exeter funtion and event band The New Heroes, apperaing at venues all across the west of England.

As a fan of many years, Steve is very much looking forward to fulfilling a long held ambition to perform the music of Genesis and the challenge of reproducing the keyboard parts of Tony Banks.
