Gary Hoey always delivers in concert and is a very diverse guitar player.  Years ago, Joe Bonamassa opened up for Gary at a local show.  After just touring with hard rock and heavy metal virtuosos Yngwie Malmsteen and Bumblefoot on the “Guitar Gods” tour, Hoey is currently rocking the blues again in support of his excellent  “De Ja Blues”, a 2012 release of original blues tunes (there are some rocking tunes that stream on his website).

As always, Gary and his band delivered a stunning performance throughout, as they opened with “I’m Goin’ Down” and  played a mix of fantastic blues tunes , a little hard rock, a little bit of surf guitar (a la Dick Dale – perfect for being across down the street from the beach) and finished out with the signature song “Hocus Pocus” (a cover by Focus) – which ended up being one fo the most successful rock guitar instrumentals of all time.  In addition to his guitar skills, he’s also a very capable singer.

Gary was very gracious to the crowd and at the end of the show, he urged the kids to not “Text and Drive”.

He then met his fans over at the merch booth for a meet and greet.  Great player, great guy.
