Gary Hoey

Multi-tasking as writer, producer and guitar player, Hoey has had clients who include DISNEY, ESPN, NO FEAR, performed the National Anthem for the SAN DIEGO PADRES and the BOSTON REDSOX. Hoey's first break came when Ozzy Osbourne showed up in Boston looking for a guitarist. Osbourne liked Hoey's tape enough to fly him to LA for an audition. Three months after the audition, he was heading west in a U-Haul, with seventeen thousand dollars in his pocket from teaching guitar and nowhere to go once he got to L.A.

In 1993 Gary Hoey launched his career with the hit song "Hocus Pocus." his fiery technique helped to send it to the top 5 on Billboards charts, The Boston raised guitarist covered the tune on his debut album, Animal Instinct (Warner Bros Records), transforming Hoey, a then-struggling player into a cult hero. He followed with the soundtrack to the surf saga Endless Summer II (Warner/Reprise), which cemented his status as a demi-god among surfers. Even Dick Dale, the surf-guitar king gave Hoey his blessing, proclaiming him his favorite modern guitarist.

Hoey has maintained that status with a series of blood-boiling albums that are heavy on riffage while upholding the basic rock-and-roll values of melodies, hooks, and heart. Hes also diversified, creating his popular Ho! Ho! Hoey series of Christmas CDs.

Hoey has toured and traded licks with the likes of Brian May (Queen), Ted Nugent, Foreigner, Joe Satriani, The Doobie Bros, Kenny Wayne Shepard, Eric Johnson, Steve Vai, and Peter Frampton to name a few.
