Bio – Gary Hoey


Guitarist | Songwriter | Producer

World-renowned blues rock guitarist Gary Hoey delivers everything a fan could hope for.

Named one of the top 100 guitarists of all time, Gary thrills his audiences with action-packed shows that draw on his 22 albums, extensive touring, and mastery of the electric guitar.

Gary and his band weave a tight set list of originals and covers that mix rock tunes with aching blues ballads played on his resonator guitar, and the fan requests like the Billboard hit that kicked off his career, Hocus Pocus.

Audiences are treated to surprises like a solo acoustic Latin arrangement of his Dust & Bones blues fusion tune that showcases Gary’s amazing fretwork; a cover tribute to Little Richard with a driving guitar solo that has people up out of their seats; or his unbelievably-rocked-out version of You’re a Mean One, Mr. Grinch from his popular Ho Ho Hoey series of rockin’ Christmas carols.

The common thread is Gary’s ability to combine heartfelt storytelling with his amazing guitar skills into a masterclass in enjoyable music.

A driven songwriter, player, producer and teacher, Gary has worked with great artists across all generations, like Brian May, Ted Nugent, Joe Satriani, Kenny Wayne Shepard, Joe Bonamassa, Eric Johnson, Steve Vai, Beth Hart, Eric Gales, Peter Frampton, Johnny Winter, Ally Venable, Quinn Sullivan, Robben Ford, Jeff Beck, Lita Ford, Roger Daltrey, Dick Dale and many more.

“All the hard work is worth it when I hang out with the audience at my shows and talk about music. Having that relationship with my fans is what keeps me writing music and practicing like a demon. I never want to let those people down.” –Gary Hoey

Venues love working with Gary Hoey

“We needed to kick off our 18th Annual Mammoth Festivals of Beers and Bluesapalooza with something special—something that would grab everyone right from the start. Gary took the stage with fire in his belly and that energy was immediately transferred to the crowd. What a tremendous talent…when can we get you back?!!?”

–Jim Vanko, Producer, Mammoth Bluesapalooza

“Gary Hoey is the consummate professional. He worked with our teens on Friday night and then showed them what hard work can do by blowing the doors off the Rock’N Ribfest. Gary Hoey is the complete package!!”

–Rick Stoudt, Promoter, Rock’N Ribfest

“We have booked Gary at the local 1200-seat venue with Johnny Winter and Sonny Landreth, Gary was the first person I called. He not only held his own, but frankly, he stole the show…after two well-deserved standing ovations he proceeded to go out to the lobby and sell out of merch. Gary Hoey is the real deal.”

–Doug Long, Promoter, FOX Theater, Visalia, CA
