Nighthawker takes its inspiration from musical decades before all band members were even born, to create music they classify as retro-rock. Anyone who fears that loud tube amps, spontaneous jams and bell bottom jeans are a relic of the past should not worry. Don't confuse them to be some kind of novelty act though, this is an authentic band with its own character and sound.


These four wayward souls came together in a shared passion to keep the traditions of the good old rock and roll alive. The kind of music that the band cherishes, but seems like a dying breed. The kind of music that was made by acts like Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, Pink Floyd and The Allman Brothers Band. The band does its own thing with this inspiration, which usually results in infectious live shows.

Ever since the band started out in the Netherlands in 2018, it's had plenty of highlights. Three EP's and one LP so far, some great opening slots (i.e. Woodstock legends Ten Years After) and they've been a sought after festival act. The band currently resides in their new headquarters in Germany and have been performing there as well since then.
