The Nighthawks
The Nighthawks
The Nighthawks sought not so much to reinvent rock and roll, but simply to have it reinvent itself by taking the original ingredients and following—if somewhat loosely—the original recipe. And like good cooks, the individual personalities involved ultimately affected the outcome. The band was over 10 years old and had baffled the mainstream industry before the term "roots rock" was coined to explain the likes of West Coasters like Los Lobos and The Blasters. By then, the affiliation with many of the living blues greats seemed to brand The Nighthawks a "blues band," despite the fact that they played with Carl Perkins as well as Muddy Waters.

Their latest record, 444 on EllerSoul Records was released in June.
The Colin Thompson Band
The Colin Thompson Band
Ranked #21 on The Alternate Root's list of top roots music guitar players, Colin Thompson was washed in the blood of American music from the time he could crawl. The 22 year old son of acclaimed Americana music artist Randy Thompson has toured Europe numerous times, received raving national and international reviews. His playing has been heard on satellite and terrestrial radio all over the US, Europe, and Australia. Already a seasoned performer at his young age, he has developed a playing style that is his own. Often compared by the press to other great slide guitar players (Sonny Landreth, Duane Allman, Derek Trucks, Lowell George), his playing is a fresh and unique combination of all his influences mixed with is own unique spin. At age 14 and again at age 15 he won the Mid - Atlantic States Guitar Center's King Of The Blues competition.
A year later formed The Colin Thompson Band with fellow Virginians Mike Calve on bass, and Stephen Lieske on drums. The band has been turning in live performances and inspiring reviews that are building a critical buzz and an unstoppable momentum. He has been reviewed by the Associated Press and No Depression magazine describing his guitar style as, "Inventive" and "Vibrant".
