As the keyboardist for the legendary Boston band and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame members, The Cars, Greg Hawkes forged the sound of rock’s New Wave. Pioneering and pushing the limits of technology and sequencing of the late ’70s and early ’80s, Greg cemented the synthesizer’s place in rock and pop music, and his contribution has influenced countless artists and bands since. Along with achieving Rock & Roll Hall of Fame status and massive commercial success with The Cars, Greg has been a sought-after session and touring musician, and has worked with the likes of Paul McCartney, Todd Rundgren, and The Turtles, to name a few. In 2016, Greg collaborated with Boston’s acclaimed Eddie Japan to produce their 2017 album Golden Age. This led to Greg and Eddie Japan joining forces to create a night of music by The Cars featuring a set list curated by Greg.
