Eclectic? All over the map? The material on All You Gotta Do, The Nighthawks’ latest release, can certainly be described in these terms. Yet, throughout the nearly five decades of its career, the band has sourced songs from everywhere and anywhere.

The prototype recording, Rock and Roll, although it had no originals, established this template in 1974. Three years later, Sidepocket Shot, showed the band capable of nearly all original material and spanning an even wider range of genres, this time in an array of production styles a la the Beatles' Revolver. All You Gotta Do does not have any outside players, only the band itself, with a minimum of overdubs. Yet the band still sounds like a hard Chicago Blues band from the mid-1950s, adding the vocal harmonies that Miss Honey Piazza once dubbed “the Doo Wop Blues.”

Mark Wenner's Blues Warriors
Digging in the renowned collections of ‘50s blues labels Chess, Vee Jay and Excello, Mark brings together some shining traditional blues from the Chicago and Louisiana schools. He shows them off with a band created just for tonight. Mark’s Blues Warriors feature Mark Wenner’s harp and vocals and up and coming DC based Clarence “Bluesman” Turner. Clarence’s creative guitar playing and authentic vocals have been garnering him a fast growing following in DC. The accomplished band is flushed out with Steve Wolf on upright bass, Robert Frahm (for yet another hot guitarist), and the Nighthawks’ own Mark Stutso on drums and vocals.
