Roots ‘n’ blues veterans the Nighthawks are a respected brand with a long and storied history behind the name. Formed in 1972 by singer/harp player Mark Wenner and guitarist Jimmy Thackery, the band was part of a thriving early 1970’s Washington D.C. music scene that included talents like Roy Buchanan and Danny Gatton. Through the years, the band has released 29 albums and rotated through a number of musicians, but they’ve always been led by Wenner’s undeniable vision and love of music. The Nighthawks won their first-ever Blues Music Award from the Blues Foundation in Memphis in 2011 (Acoustic Album of the Year) for their 2010 release, Last Train to Bluesville.
