The original "bad boys of Bethesda" have been making it happen since 1972. Along with founding member Mark Wenner, vocals/bassist Johnny Castle, guitarist Paul Bell, and vocals/dummer Mark Stutso, The Nighthawks have long been dedicated to the music known as the Blues. The band has toured with John Lee Hooker, Elvin Bishop, John Hammond and Pinetop Perkins, and were featured in a recent documentary, Nighthawks on the Blue Highway.
