VizzTone proudly presents THE NIGHTHAWKS, Washington DC’s legendary road warriors of blues and roots music, as they celebrate their 50th Anniversary with a brand new album –

Produced by the Nighthawks and longtime compadre David Earl, they took advantage of the pandemic slowdown to hunker down in Earl’s Severn Sound Studios in Annapolis, Maryland and cranked out fourteen new tracks in the great Nighthawks tradition – rockin’, heartfelt material unbound by any genre other than the widest range of American roots music.

On this landmark anniversary, founder, lead singer and harpmaster Mark Wenner is still at the helm, while drummer Mark Stutso, guitarist Don Hovey and bassist Paul Pisciotta all share vocals and songwriting, making this lineup one of the strongest ever. Decades of gigs and countless rabid fans have earned then the name “The Best Bar Band In The World”.

This anniversary album celebrates the legendary NIGHTHAWKS, still going strong.
