Since I began this article they have added a new bass player (Jeff Lemmons) and with Dave Hanson still out front singing and playing his molten metal blues harp they continue chugging along without missing a beat. Both Dave and Tim Roe (guitar) worked for Cheap Trick. In fact, Tim played with them last summer at their 25th anniversary show here in Rockford. Cheap Trick's Drummer Bun E. played on two songs on their current CD and both Bun E. and Rick Nielsen show up to jam with the band from time to time. The group just won the award for Best Blues Band this year at the local RAMI awards. The Blues Hawks really know how to kick out the Blues and like a powerful blues train they continue to push forward with their trademark blend of contemporary blues.
