Gary Hoey Announces First Ever UK Show 5/5/17


Following the release of his latest album ‘Dust & Bones’ last summer, guitar maestro Gary Hoey will be coming to the UK for the first ever time to play a special show with fellow Blues whirlwind Eric Gales at Nell’s Jazz & Blues in Kensington, London, on Friday 2nd June ahead of his European tour with Beth Hart. The show will be a real feast for the ears and eyes for all Blues fans out there and represents two of the finest musicians out there at the top of their game. 'Dust & Bones' showcases Hoey’s Fender Stratocaster-driven fury alongside open-D-tuned resonator guitars plugged into half-stacks. The massive sonic attack was essential for paying sincere and appropriate homage to some of Hoey’s influences, such as Johnny Winter ('Steamroller'), Robin Trower ('This Time Tomorrow') and Brian Setzer ('Who’s Your Daddy'), as well as a thrill-a-minute mash up of Robert Johnson meets Led Zeppelin ('Boxcar Blues'). There’s also a classic power ballad (Coming Home') where Lita Ford (The Runaways) sings a duet with Hoey.
