Ellington Hawk is an artistic combination of blues, jazz, rock n roll, soul and beat poetry. Although the musical influences may seem complex and vast, Ellington Hawk takes a raw and simplified approach to the song arrangements. It is easy to listen to and appeals to fans of all ages and genres. The music and live performance touches the soul on it’s sensual journey through the songs. In the spirit of “Sinatra’s Rat Pack” and the settings of a prohibition era “Speakeasy”, Ellington Hawk’s sexy, exciting and heartfelt delivery creates a retrospective mood helping the audience forget about the stresses of daily life and enjoy the moment.
