Tim is from Eau Claire, WI. He became interested in music at an early age while watching his dad perform and play drums in his local band. Tim was playing drums by age 10, learning to play by practicing along with CD's and cassettes of various groups. At age 14, Tim and his dad began their own oldies duo called "Two Way Street". Tim played drums, his dad played guitar, and they were accompanied by programmed keyboard and bass tracks. In high school, Tim helped form a short lived rock n' roll band called "Cardboard Kick". They played some local events and clubs before breaking up after a few years. Tim next joined an oldies show band named "Rocket 88" and also spent some time drumming for area blues band "The Jones Tones". Tim most recently played with the variety band "The Twerps" for seven years, doing shows all over Wisconsin. Now he is the newest addition to the Night Hawks!
Steven is from Medford, WI. At age 12 he started playing drums in the Medford Junior High School Band. Having two older brothers who both played musical instruments, they quickly started their own rock band. At the age of 15, the band started playing for the Little Chute, WI based talent agency "Gary Van Zeeland Talent". Touring under the name "Star Flight", the band toured extensively in WI, MI, MN, IL, and the Dakotas, with an occasional gig in Ontario, Canada. Steven and his brothers eventually retired from performing full time and became weekend warriors with bands such as "Code Red", "High Gear", "The Lockouts", and many more. Steven switched to guitar in the last few years and formed an acoustic act called "The Morris Garage Band" with fellow MG car enthusiast Jack Schneider. Since then the band has expanded and added keyboards and a drummer becoming the classic rock act "The Night Hawks".
Tom started piano lessons while attending grade school in Kaukauna WI, but switched to guitar to play in his high school band. Tom moved to Eau Claire to attend UW-Eau Claire, where he went back to playing piano when he joined "Patti Miller & Dandelion Wine", a group that was working the national coffee house circuit. Tom toured the country with the group for two years and appears on their album, which was released in 1972 on Curtom Records. (the late Curtis Mayfield's label) After coming off the road, Tom settled into the local music scene where he has performed with numerous bands over the years, including the "Cadillac Cowboys", "Streetwise", "The Mighty Bullfrogs", "Flare Catz", "BFORS", "Not Guilty", and more recently "Bonafide" and "The Morris Garage Band". In addition to a full range of keyboards, Tom provides vocals, harmonica, and some guitar when needed.
Jack Schneider's music interests began with school music programs from 1967-1974, playing wind and brass instruments. Jack's dad, being a performing musician since his high school days, began to teach him to play electric bass in 1969. Jack and friends formed a local hard rock group in the mid 1970's, playing local venues and parties. In the mid 1980's, Jack replaced an exiting bassist in another rock band and again was out playing the local scene for a few more years. After life changes in 1991, Jack picked up the bass once more and joined up with a group of musicians, playing mainly as a hobby, but occasionally playing local venues and parties, for the next 20 years. In 2009, Jack joined up with Steve Rindt and formed the acoustic duo "The Morris Garage Band". The expansion of that duo, now including Tom Wieseler (keyboards) and Tim Lynnes (drums) are called "The Night Hawks".
