We’re Back!

June 04, 2008

Hey everybody! Been awhile since we updated the news page. The Nighthawks have finished recording a new CD at Cue Recorders, Falls Church, VA. No title yet, but we have 13 songs to choose from, including four penned by yours truly. We hope to have it available by the end of Summer.

The ‘Hawks have a busy Spring and Summer planned with Festivals, Outdoor Concerts, Wine festivals, and more on the schedule. We have 3 dates at the end of June playing with the legendary Hubert Sumlin. Check the Nighthawks web site for the when and where’s.

After playing a number of “Rolling Thunder” events Memorial Day weekend, the ‘Hawks played for wounded soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Center Sunday June 1st. It was fun, the troops seemed to enjoy it, and there was excellent Barbeque supplied by my old friend Bobby Mitchell’s fantastic Catering Co. “Puttin’ On The Ritz”. Hope we can do it again for our combat veterans!

The Thrillbillys are also in the Studio working on a new CD of (so far) all original tunes. Mike Harvey’s home studio in Annandale, VA is great! He’s a delight to work with, and the stuff sounds awesome! No clue as to when it may come available, but I’ll keep ya posted.

The Thrillbillys are still doin’ Thrillbilly Thursdays at the Sunset Grille in Annandale. In mid-May I had my 16th anniversary of playing most Thursdays at “the Grille”! Yikes! Thanks to Shel and Kay for putting up with me for all of these years!
