The 2023 Iowa Blues Hall of Fame Induction Celebration on 4-2-2023 included Molly Nova in the 2023 inductees! The 2023 Iowa Blues Hall of Fame Inductees were Rush Cleveland, Scotty Hartung, Fred Koogler, Tim Kula, and Molly Nova.

Press Release 2-15-2023

After a series of fantastic shows in 2022, Molly Nova and the Hawks have made some major changes to their lineup. Bryce Janey has moved on to concentrate on his solo projects, both with 
Southwest Studios and Grooveyard Records. A big thanks to Bryce for helping to launch this project to get Molly back on stage! After a search of available guitarists in Eastern Iowa, we feel we have hit the jackpot with Evan Stock. Evan has had a major impact on the local Cedar Rapids music scene, both as a recording Studio Coordinator at Eastern Iowa Arts Academy, and fronting his own successful Evan Stock Band. We have also added Vinny Benyshek as our utility guy on bass and guitar duties. His band Vinny & The Night Prowlers has been on the Eastern Iowa music scene for a while now, and we are excited to cut him loose on our sweet rockin' roots 'n blues!
