Greg Hawkins - Bass Guitar


“I love playing bass. I love the band North Forty. Ergo, I love playing bass in the band North Forty!” ~GH

Greg started playing the bass in 7th grade as part of the school’s orchestra program. From there he moved to rhythm guitar playing in bands throughout high school, mostly rock and roll covers with a few originals sprinkled in. That continued through college, though the style changed to more “New Wave” and punk, inspired by the radio station KROQ in Los Angeles. While living in So Cal, Greg played small gigs and parties.

After several years Greg became interested in playing again so he bought a new bass and started playing with some buddies for fun. That lead to gigs around the Sacramento area and kept his skills sharp in order to be ready for an opportunity like North Forty. This band brings multiple musical styles together for Greg, so all the songs are a blast to play! He loves seeing people out having fun on the dance floor, and loves to keep the fun going!
