Haley Reinhart was one of the special musical guests who performed at the 2nd Annual Extraordinary Families Awards Gala held on April 26th, 2017 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Haley was joined by fellow friends and musicians Dylan Chambers on guitar, Casey Abrams on Bass, Beto Marzano on drums, and Jeremy Weinglass on piano.
“I sang, “DREAM ON” in honor of legendary manager Howard Kaufman. He managed my favorite Steven Tyler, Aerosmith, The Eagles, Stevie Nicks, & the list goes on… It was a beautiful night filled with pure passion and one love. Thanks for rocking out with me to a song I’ve always wanted to sing!” -Haley Reinhart via Instagram

Haley Reinhart, Casey Abrams and Dylan Chambers put on another great show at the Room 5 Lounge in Hollywood last Wednesday night. The show was made possible thanks to Dylan, who went on first at 10pm and opened the show with an entertaining charming set.
Next on was Casey, who started his set with a few of his own songs. He even mashed up Jason Derulo’s “Talk Dirty to Me” with his song “Dry Spell”. After that, it didn’t take long for Haley to join him up on stage and sing with him for the rest of his set.
Haley creeped up on stage to play her “hand trumpet” for “Almost Like Being in Love”:
Casey then teased Haley for barging in on his set, telling her that now she has to stay and sing more songs with him. So of course she stayed and they went on to sing Casey’s song “Never Knew What Love Could do”, where Casey invited Haley to share a seat with him:
Next song up was “Stuck in London”, a song from Casey’s debut album which always gets a fantastic crowd reaction:
They also brought back a popular cover of theirs that they hadn’t done in awhile, “Sail”:
It was then Haley’s turn, and with her she had friend and fellow singer/songwriter Anders Grahn to play guitar and do backup vocals. Anders and Haley have written a few songs together now. They first met at a song camp in Santorini Greece, where they wrote “Better”.
Haley started off her set with a brand new song called “Lover Girl”, that as she explains in the video, may or may not make the upcoming EP:
LYRICS (might not be 100% correct):
Next was “Better”, as stated earlier, Haley and Anders wrote this song together on the first day of their songwriting camp. It was a treat to watch it performed by the people who created it:
Haley said it’s tradition to do a new Beatle’s cover at every Room 5 show, so her and Anders gave us a beautiful rendition of “Don’t Let Me Down”:
The second new song she debuted for us that night was “Good or Bad” which may also make the EP as well:
LYRICS (might not be 100% correct):
Casey was then brought back up on stage to perform with Haley and Anders for the rest of the show, they started with a jazzy acoustic amazing version of “Night and Day”:
The show was almost over, but the crowd at this sold out show were in for a real treat. Haley gave a sensational acoustic performance of her highly popular “Creep” cover. Less jazzy this time around, but still the same singing arrangement. It was nothing short of amazing to hear live. Do yourself a favor and have a listen below:
Last but not least, to close out the show Haley and Casey sang another popular cover of theirs (and Postmodern Jukebox), an epic (and hilariously entertaining) performance of “All About That Bass”:
Yet another amazing sold out (well deserved) show by Dylan, Casey and Haley. They are all so talented and are the kindest most down to earth people, which doesn’t go unnoticed and is probably the reason their shows keep selling out.
I got to talk to Haley, and she said her EP is moving along quickly, and should be out this summer! There are lots more new songs we have yet to hear, and a few will be left for a surprise once the EP is out. I also asked about the possibility of her own tour for her EP, it’s definitely a possibility, stay tuned.
As for the Postmodern Jukebox tour coming up, Haley’s really excited about it and is so proud of what her and Casey have been able to do with them. Check to see if Haley’s coming to a city near you here, & buy tickets at pmjlive.com!

Haley closed out the show featuring Dylan Chambers and Mark Ballas last Tuesday night at the Room 5 Lounge in Hollywood California. It was an awesome night, filled with great music and lots of talent. And I mean LOTS of talent considering half of the Dancing with the Stars cast seemed to be there to support their fellow cast mate Mark Ballas. Celebrities in attendance included Mark’s parents, Shirley and Corky Ballas. Also, Sadie and Korie Robertson, and Chrys Howard from the hit A&E TV show “Duck Dynasty”. Other dancers including Derek Hough, Witney Carson, Sasha Farber, Allison Holker, plus more were also there! Janel Parrish (actress from the popular TV show “Pretty Little Liars”) and Bethany Mota (Famous YouTube Video Blogger) who are both also on this season of Dancing with the Stars were in attendance as well.
Dylan Chambers opened the show with his own catchy originals, while showing off his guitar skills, and with memorable Prince and Amy Winehouse covers. Mark Ballas took the stage next, playing many songs off his recently released EP “Kicking Clouds”. He also gave an amazing performance of his song “She”, which he dedicated to his grandmother who had passed away last year. Haley closed the show with quite the memorable set, with guests Albert “Beatalks” Marzano on drums, Clare Reynolds and Casey Abrams on a few songs from the night.
Her 10 song setlist included:
Pathetic (New cover)
Knock Me Out (New song!)
Love is Worth Fighting For
All About That Bass (New cover)
Cry Me a River
Show Me Your Moves

You don’t want to miss the debut of Haley’s new song “Knock Me Out” accompanied by Clare Reynolds on the piano and backup vocals. Clare is a singer/songwriter who wrote this new song with Haley. She also co-wrote “Love is Worth Fighting For” as well, which Haley debuted a few months back at Room 5.
Also a first, Haley and Casey’s fun new cover which seems to be a fan favorite was Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass”.
Another new cover was Eric Hassle’s “Pathetic”, which truly showcases Haley’s vocal abilities. This is a must see!
“@HaleyReinhart so stunning, gorgeous, and a voice of rich Velvet outstanding show tonight, and what a “Cake” UR lovely :)”

Haley Reinhart, Mark Ballas, Dylan Chambers & BC Jean will be playing a show together at the Hotel Cafe in Hollywood, Sunday August 3rd. We just recently got to witness Haley, Mark, and Dylan along with Casey Abrams put on a fantastic show at the Room 5 Lounge a few weeks back in June.
For unknown reasons, Casey isn’t going to be there performing this time around. Taking his place is Mark Ballas’ girlfriend, singer/songwriter BC Jean. The show is listed as a 4 hour set, from 8pm-12am! You can purchase tickets to the show online here.
If you’re thinking about attending, be sure to buy your tickets ASAP, because their last show at Room 5 ended up selling out!
Haley hasn’t performed at the Hotel Cafe since November of 2012, in which she performed solo, with guitarist John Notto.
If you want an idea of what this show may be like (minus Casey of course), here’s a video of Haley, Mark, Dylan, BC & Casey performing “Hit The Road Jack” a few weeks ago:
Can’t wait to see what they have in store for us this time!
