Nighthawks DVD Review

April 28, 2006

As y’all know, the new Nighthawks DVD/CD is out, and I was finally home long enough to look at it! It really looks great!

It’s a 4 camera shoot with absolutely seamless editing. The Rolling Storm production crew did a phenomenal job with little cut-ins, like Pete doing a little cymbal fill..there it is. A guitar riff? There’s Paul playing it. They didn’t miss a trick!

The band was amazed that we got anything at all, as we drove 8 hours that day from Rochester, NY to the Barns of Wolf Trap in Vienna, VA. We knew we were beat, but you can’t tell from this video. Two highlights: “Blue Moon In Your Eye”, “the Sopranos” TV theme song is smoking and leads off the package. We adapted it for a four piece group and it sounds righteous! “Black Night” A sultry Blues number with some astounding displays of musicianship by Mark Wenner on chromatic harp, and Paul Bell on guitar.

Check it out! You can order online at the Nighthawks web site.
