This week John Mathews opens the TMD Roadhouse from 7 to 10 p.m. for a special edition featuring a live performance and interview with the legendary blues and roots rock band The Nighthawks.
The Washington, D.C.-based group embodies the smoky blues, deep-fried rock and 2 x 4 twang that you've come to expect from the Roadhouse. The Nighthawks have been a staple of the area music scene since 1972, performing--and sharing the stage--with almost every major blues musician of the modern age.
John welcomes The Nighthawks for an extended during the 8 o'clock hour. Their new album Last Train to Bluesville features blues standards, and the band is planning to record a new batch of originals in the near future.
The Nighthawks play the Labor Day Dance Party at the Creative Alliance at 8 p.m. Saturday, September 4th.
