Gary Hoey and his band weave a tight set list of originals and covers that mix rock tunes with aching blues. Neon Highway Blues — Gary’s latest release carries its 11 tracks with the confidence and assuredness of a veteran, while keeping the freshness of someone who’s still in the process of discovery and refinement.

Gary has worked with artists across all generations such as Brian May, Ted Nugent, and Joe Satriani; just to name a few. In 1993, Gary’s cover of Hocus Pocus rocketed into Billboard’s Top 5 Rock Tracks. He went on to score the successful “Endless Summer II” soundtrack for New Line Cinema, and in 1995 started a trilogy of Ho!Ho!Hoey — a collection of instrumental Christmas classics that continues each year in his Rockin’ Holiday shows.

One thing that remains consistent is Gary’s impassioned command of the guitar. He can play his instrument with feral intensity and then play something very soft and achingly beautiful.
