Review: Greg Hawkes @ The Magic Room Gallery
Progressive psychedelic and experimental aren’t words usually associated with ukulele songs, but Greg Hawkes’ gig at the Magic Room Gallery on Saturday night was exactly that. Hawkes was greeted by an enthusiastic crowd who lapped up the eclectic set that included renditions of songs by The Cars, mesmerizing synthpop numbers and tunes from his latest CD ‘The Beatles Uke.’ Hawkes also performed some experimental poetry with opening act Casey Desmond, to the crowd’s delight, before being joined on stage by two fellow ukulele players and launching into covers of his favorite Beatles classics. Ever the professional, Greg gave a spirited performance that was sure to please all in attendance.
