The Gloria Faye Dingus Music Alliance is pleased
to welcome Mark Wenner’s Blues Warriors! 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 The Blues Warrior’s 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. 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 been garnering him a fast growing following in DC. The accomplished band is flushed out with Steve Wolf on upright bass, Zach Sweeny (for yet another hot guitarist), and the Nighthawks’ own Mark Stutso on drums and vocals. Tickets are $20, seating is limited, and advance purchase is highly recommended. Children 12 and under admitted free with parent or guardian. Doors open at 7:30 and the concert will begin at 8pm. Proceeds will go to The Gloria Faye Dingus Music Alliance a non-profit 501c)3 organization dedicated to providing music education and instruments for all those wishing to learn and enjoy music.
