Hank Mowery raced onto the local and regional blues scene in the Mid 90's 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. During this time Mowery had the opportunity to share the stage with true legends of the blues such as Pinetop Perkins, Gary Primich, William Clarke, Little Charlie & The Nightcats, Anson Funderburg, Mark Hummel, Rusty Zinn & many more. In 1996 & 1998 Mowery had the opportunity to tour briefly with Blacktop recording artist Mike Morgan & The Crawl filling in for their ailing front man. 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 an old school feel, like Little Walter and Big Walter Horton...the cool stuff. Two minutes in 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, Little Frank & The Premiers, George Bedard, Steve Nardella, Rusty Zinn, Ronnie James Webber, Mark Hummel, Bill Lupkin, Joe Filisko, Jim Liban, Nick Moss and the legendary Gary Primich. With the release of his new CD ACCOUNT TO ME on Old Pal Records, Mowery leaps onto the international scene and is causing a buzz around the blues community. The fresh sound of the recording, different textures in the music and strong musicianship are causing people to stop and take note of this formidable blues/roots outfit. With a follow up CD taking shape in the studio you can bet you will be hearing about Hank Mowery for a long time to come. This band weaves together a show laced with old school sensibilities and modern day energy. Chicago Standards, Texas Shuffles or West Coast Swing, you will know it is Hank Mowery and you will like what you hear.

C.J. Chenier, son of the 'King of Zydeco' Clifton Chenier, joined his father's Red-Hot Louisiana Band playing saxophone at the age of 21. After Clifton's death in 1987, C.J. picked up the accordion and took charge of his father's ministry - to spread the word of Zydeco music to the world. Since then, Chenier has pushed the genre to new heights with his virtuosity. The Boston Globe has called him "the crown prince of zydeco," and Living Blues magazine hails him as "the best living zydeco singer and accordionist." His musical style ranges from the traditional Zydeco of Clifton Chenier right on up to modern funk with healthy doses of blues, R&B, swamp pop and even country. C.J.'s total mastery of the accordion combined with his rich, satisfying voice are the driving forces behind this power-house zydeco band.
