David Goodfriend & Willie Barry – Hank Dietle’s Tavern Tribute

Hank Dietle’s Tavern was off the beaten path of the DC music scene. The vintage 1950s dive bar on Rockville Pike boasted the first liquor license in Montgomery County and a loyal following amongst fans of rockabilly, roots rock and cheap beer. Nothing good lasts forever, but a fire gutting the beloved establishment isn’t how such a landmark deserves to go out. Songwriters David Goodfriend of Goin’ Goin’ Gone and Willie Barry of The Rock-A-Sonics gave Hank’s a spirited musical send off while standing in the smoldering ruins of the bar, while Chip Py recorded and interspersed his photos taken over the years. Volunteer demolition and rebuilding are underway now, so throw a few bucks towards the official GoFundMe campaign and help restore a local legend.
