HO! HO! HOEY! GARY HOEY’S ROCKIN’ CHRISTMAS
“It’s great to hear Gary sing and play the blues with his trademark intensity, feel and authenticity. And the guitar tones, both vintage and modern at the same time.”
With a collection of 21 albums it’s no wonder Gary Hoey is listed as one of the top 100 guitarists of all time in Rolling Stone Magazine. The world renowned rock guitarist’s first break came in 1987 when Ozzy Osbourne flew Hoey to Los Angeles for an audition and encouraged him to move to the West Coast. In 1990 Hoey was signed to Reprise Records with a short-lived band called Heavy Bones but followed up in 1993 with a solo album and Gary’s cover of “Hocus Pocus” rocketed into the Billboard’s Top 5 Rock Tracks. Hoey went on to score the successful “Endless Summer II” soundtrack for New Line Cinema and in 1995 started the trilogy of “Ho! Ho! Hoey,” a collection of Christmas classics that continues each year in his Rockin’ Holiday shows.
