FRIDAY NIGHT - The Nighthawks & Bob Margolin


Two great bands team up for an amazing night of Blues!

Join us this Friday, May 13th, for an amazing night of authentic blues music! We’ll have Bob Margolin and his band, followed by another full set from The Nighthawks! The evening will end with Bob and The Nighthawks joining forces for an extended tribute to the late Muddy Waters!

Bob Margolin was a member of Muddy’s band for multiple years, touring internationally with him as a guitar player in his band. Bob was also on the legendary documentary, The Last Waltz, and recently took part in a 40th-anniversary reunion set of The Last Waltz in New Orleans that was led by Warren Haynes. The Nighthawks, based in Washington, DC, have been touring for more than 40 years and have played with a long, long list of the Who’s Who in the blues world.

Tickets are $17 in advance and $20 at the doors. Season passes are gladly accepted. Buy your tickets online HERE.

We're looking for a few good volunteers to help out at this Friday's show. Volunteer responsibilities range from working the box office, band merch, the bar or helping us clean up after the performance. Some volunteer duties allow you to also watch the show. For other volunteer duties, you will be rewarded with a free ticket to a future show. Arts at the Rives Theatre is a community nonprofit led by a volunteer board of directors.
