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’ve heard the 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: Stanley Clarke, Meshell Ndegeocello, Esperanza Spalding, Estelle and Jeremy Pelt have all relied on his work. He’s in residence weekly on U St NW.
