A Southern take on blues-driven rock
The Quaker City Night Hawks are a Southern band, to be sure, but it’s not the South we’ve come to expect. Equally influenced by ZZ Top and science fiction, they write of landscapes both familiar and foreign, of people working to shed their past, but still burdened with its repercussions in the future. Paste magazine hailed the band’s “blues-infused southern” sound, while The Dallas Observer dubbed the “relevant and timeless” rockers the Best Band of 2015. Several of their songs have been featured in the hit FX series, Sons of Anarchy. Dates with Chris Stapleton, Lucero, J Roddy Walston and Whiskey Myers have solidified the Night Hawks’ status as one of the Lone Star State’s most exciting new acts.
