Kick off the winter season with the 2022 Holiday Blues-A-Palooza! Featuring The Nighthawks, Moonshine Society, Bobby BlackHat, and The Honey Larks.

The Nighthawks celebrate their 50th Anniversary this year with their latest release, “Established 1972”. On this landmark anniversary, founder, lead singer, and harpmaster, Mark Wenner, is still at the helm, while drummer Mark Stutso, guitarist Dan Hovey and bassist Paul Pisciotta all share vocals and songwriting, making this lineup on the strongest ever. Decades of gigs and countless rabid fans have earned them the name “The Best Bar Band In The World.” More than a bar band or blues band, as they’re frequently labeled, this is a band that played with Carl Perkins in addition to Muddy Waters.
You can call their music blues, soul, roots music…or, as Sonny Boy Williamson said: “You can call it your Mama if you want to.” With a sound that spans all genres while still somehow sounding like a Chicago blues band is so many respects, the Nighthawks have remained one of the top-rated bands in the U.S. and beyond.

Meet The Honey Larks. Roots music with fabulous vocal harmonies and uncensored girl chat between tunes.
In 2020, despite the lock down that took away so many live concert experiences, three best friends came together to share their love of blues music. What was intended to be a fun, one- off show turned into a female super-group with immediate fans requesting more performances.
Shows are designed to be a safe space for all music lovers, celebrate blues history, and inspire viewers. Featuring Carly Harvey (DC’s Queen of the Blues), Jenny Langer (Blues Hall of Fame), and Holly Montgomery (Blue Elan Records).
