HANK MOWERY & THE HAWKTONES
HANK MOWERY & THE HAWKTONES
Hank Mowery raced onto the local and regional blues scene in the Mid 90's with his band The Hawktones. As General Manager of The Rhythm Kitchen Cafe, Mowery honed his skills jamming nightly with the local and national blues acts that happened through The Kitchen.

In 1996 & 1998 Mowery had the opportunity to tour with Blacktop recording artist Mike Morgan & The Crawl. Mike Morgan comments "I was amazed that Hank could step in on a national level like he did. He is a cool harmonica player and singer with old school feel, like Little Walter and Big Walter Horton...two minutes into our first show we knew he wasn't a replacement, he was part of the band!"

Over the years Mowery has had the pleasure of playing with Doug Deming, Dennis Gruenling, Greg "Fingers" Taylor, Frank Krakowski, George Bedard, Steve Nardella, Rusty Zinn, Ronnie James Webber, Mark Hummel, Bill Lupkin, Joe Filisko, Jim Liban, Nick Moss, Kate Moss, Pinetop Perkins, John Brim and the legendary Gary Primich.

With the release of his new CD ACCOUNT TO ME on Old Pal Records and now EXCUSES PLENTY on BLUE BELLA RECORDS, Mowery leaps onto the international scene and is causing a buzz around the roots community. The fresh sound of the recording, different textures in the music and strong musicianship are causing people to stop and take note of the formidable blues/roots outfit.

GHOST LIGHT REVUE
GHOST LIGHT REVUE
Sometimes the pieces just fall into place. That’s exactly what happened when two friends, Dillon Ruggiero and Ryan Timmons, who had known each other for years via a local indoor soccer league, struck up a conversation about music after a game one day in the summer of 2014. Up to that point the core of “The Ghost Light Revue” had been practicing together for about a year with Ryan’s wife Lisa on Lead Vocals and Ukulele, Ryan on Upright Bass, Beau Geste on Accordion and Piano, and Aaron Reker on Drums. Together they had composed an impressive catalog of original songs, but were still searching for that extra something to elevate the band to the next level. Previous attempts to bring in a fifth member to capture what they were trying to find had failed, and subsequently, they had resigned themselves to developing their sound without any additional accoutrement. But the casual, post-game conversation which transpired between Ryan and Dillon that day was soon to change all that as the two quickly realized they had been plotting similar, parallel courses in music, and that Dillon’s skills as a multi-instrumentalist (Guitar, Mandolin, Lap Steel, Harmonica, and more) would make him the ideal fit for the band. A jam session was organized, and, shortly thereafter, “The Ghost Light Revue” was born. Dillon’s girlfriend, Cherie Guajardo, was recruited a few weeks later to add some extra percussive elements (Washboard, Tambourine, Shaker, etc.) completing the line-up as it exists today.
