Greg Loiacono

Today our guest is singer/songwriter Greg Loiacono. Loiacono is well-known here in Chico for his decades-long career with the rock band The Mother Hips. In their first 10 years as a band, The Mother Hips grew from Chico State students gigging on the weekends all the way to major label stars, traveling the country and rubbing elbows with iconic songwriters like Johnny Cash. Loiacono has also developed a flourishing solo career in addition to his work with the Hips. The Mother Hips will perform in Petaluma on February 3rd, and then tour across California later in March. Also keep an eye out for their new album being released through Blue Rose Music on June 8th.
