Dana Hawkins is that rare kind of musician who doesn’t just catch your attention; he commands it. If you’ve ever been in the room with Hawkins on drums when the late set was just starting at Service Bar, or Sotto, or 18th Street Lounge, you know what it’s like to hear Hawkins settle back into the saddle: There’s a crisp snap to attention on the snare, and then — in no time — the establishment of a crystal-clear groove. You don’t have to take our word for it. Check out the list of internationally recognized musicians who have relied on Hawkins’s drumming: Stanley Clarke, Meshell Ndegeocello, Esperanza Spalding, Estelle, and Jeremy Pelt.
