The iconic blues band The Nighthawks take January off but band leader and harp virtuoso Mark Wenner isn’t about resting on his laurels. Each January Mark brings some amazing side project and tonight is no exception. Digging in the renowned collections of ‘50s blues labels Chess, Vee Jay and Excello, Mark brings together some shining traditional blues from the Chicago and Louisiana schools. He shows them off with a band created just for tonight. Mark’s Blues Warriors feature Mark Wenner’s harp and vocals and up-and-coming DC-based Clarence “Bluesman” Turner. Clarence’s creative guitar playing and authentic vocals have garnered him a fast- growing following in DC. The accomplished band is flushed out with Steve Wolf on upright bass, Robert Frahm (for yet another hot guitarist), and the Nighthawks’ own Mark Stutso on drums and vocals. $20
