Washington Post article about my neighbor Mark's 35 year old band The Nighthawks

Fellow Kensingtonian Mark Wenner has been playing with the blues & roots rock band The Nighthawks longer than I've been alive. Check out The Nighthawks story at this past Friday's Washington Post.

Here is a paragraph from the article:

"On liner notes for "Rock 'n' Roll," the Nighthawks' 1974 debut two years after the addition of bass player Jan Zukowski and drummer Pete Ragusa, Wenner had written about reinventing rock-and-roll "by using the same processes with which it had been invented in the first place, going to the various sources and mixing them together -- soul, rockabilly, jump, country, R&B and etc. -- taking all these previously used ingredients, pouring them into a stew and turning it up and stirring it around and seeing what comes out again." "
