Axe-slinger Gary Hoey is embarking on an exclusive run of tour dates with Jeff Beck and will perform acoustically an array of favorites. These shows come in the middle of Hoey’s spring run of national guitar clinics running up and down the East Coast. These clinics start April 6th in Allentown, PA and continue 'til the end of May.
Hoey has been busy on many projects and 2010 is no different. He is currently wrapping up his latest album Utopia, which will see release on his own label Wazoo Music. Hoey also recently participated in Rock n’ Roll Fantasy camp where he joined an amazing line-up of rockstars such as Michael Anthony (ex-Van Halen, Chickenfoot), Ace Frehley (ex-KISS), Mark Farner and more. This year’s camp was filmed for a new Vh1 Classic reality show shot by reality show master Mark Burnett.
Hoey also recorded Jeff Beck’s El Becko and is on the upcoming release of the Les Paul Dedication – Guitar Masters Volume 3, due this summer. In late June, he will appear in Bangkok, Malaysia and Tokyo and of course the year will wrap up with Hoey’s Annual Ho Ho Hoey Rockin’ Holiday Tour beginning in mid-November, stopping in approximately 20 US cities. It's Hoeys continual hard work and drive for his fans that make him one of the most sought after guitar gurus in the business.
With a collection of 16 albums and five top 20 Billboard hits, it’s clear to see why Gary Hoey is listed in the top 100 greatest guitar players of all time. Whether Hoey plays rock, blues, surf or Christmas, Hoey’s command of each style makes his live show one of the most exciting on the circuit today.
