Originally scheduled for November 3, 2022 7:30PM. Previously purchased tickets will be honored for the new date. “The Nighthawks celebrate their golden anniversary with this smoking hot set, a mix of all shades of blues, R&B and roots that demonstrates clearly why they are still just as vital today as they were 50 years ago. The Nighthawks have put out some great albums across the past five decades, and this one ranks right up with the best of ’em,” raves BLUES BLAST MAGAZINE (2022 Album Review ‘The Nighthawks Established 1972’).

Blues Music Award Winning Band THE NIGHTHAWKS bring their 50th Anniversary Tour to Jimmy's Jazz & Blues Club! The Nighthawks was an idea in Mark Wenners brain long before he was able to implement it. The musical product of pre 1958 radio in Washington, D.C., he did not know there were rules against mixing blues, R&B, honkytonk country, doo wop, gospel and rockabilly into one delicious stew. The original Nighthawks lineup solidified in mid 1974. The band opened many doors and forged many touring routes for their contemporaries, including the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Robert Cray, and played with as many Blues and Rockabilly legends as they could. They opened show after show for Muddy Waters, James Cotton and Carl Perkins, and backed up and recorded with John Hammond and Pinetop Perkins. The Band includes MARK WENNER (Founder, Harmonica, Vocals), MARK STUTSO (Drums, Vocals), PAUL PISCIOTTA (Bass), DAN HOVEY (Guitar). Former band members include WARREN HAYNES.
