 ABOUT

The Hawkeyes of Pittsburgh PA is a steel city rock powerhouse that forges a pure unique blend of driving rock, rustbelt grit, and big stage headlining attitude persona. The intense rock four-piece puts on an incredibly exciting live show displaying a full-throated passionate sound, unforgettable songs, and pure rock n roll swagger.

Ripping guitars and pulsing rhythm propel the band’s raw and powerful musical demeanor, while its lyrical honesty paints a compelling portrait of its working-class roots and constant desire for growth.

The band’s mentality is one that is focused on elevating to the biggest stages that any working/touring band could imagine but also pays an endearing tribute to its working-class rock ‘n’ roll roots that draw inspiration from the city in which it has lived in, worked for, breathed and loved.

From the people they have met, to the experience of playing that first gig in a smoky club with cheap beer, those influences have led to a collection of super tight, endearing songs that are representative of the band’s growth from an outlying rock act to a hometown and national touring staple that has performed on some of Pittsburgh’s biggest stages – Stage AE, Rex Theater, Thunderbird Cafe & Hard Rock Cafe as well as some capacity attended headlining shows at out of town venues such as Radio Radio in Indianapolis IN, Bent Keg in Appleton WI, Schmitt’s Saloon in Morgantown WV and Sturgis Music Fest Main Stage.

The Hawkeyes have logged thousands of miles nationally for the past 4 years and have shared stages with such household names such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Marcy Playground, Lit, Collective Soul, Blackberry Smoke, Rich Robinson (The Black Crowes), Bob Mould (Husker Du), Lukas Nelson & Promise of The Real, The Clarks, and Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers.

“Like The Struts, The Hawkeyes are creating music that can’t be contained in a small venue.”

"Swagger, emotionalism, and most importantly - great songs!"

“Holy Sh*t! Nothing compares to the discovery of a band in a purely organic way. To hear a band that touches a nerve and ignites your adrenaline.”

"Thanks to the Hawkeyes’ radio-ready sound, the question seems to be a matter not of if they’ll “make it,” but rather when."
