Gary Hoey will embark on his annual Ho Ho Hoey Holiday Tour this December with thirteen dates planned coast to coast. The excursion has become a tradition with radio stations and families across the country. It's a must see event for adults and kids alike. Hoey has been a driving force behind instrumental rock Christmas music since 1995 after his version of “The Twelve Days Of Christmas” hit the airwaves with its crunchy guitars and metal flavor. This also marks the 8th annual guitar give away on Christmas Day at Garyhoey.com.

Alongside the seasonal selections the guitarist works in to the set, he will be performing songs from his album Dust & Bones which was released this past July. In front of the street date Hoey shared, "This is where I belong—playing this ferocious blend of blues and rock music. My last album, Deja Blues, proved to myself that I could play authentic blues, and now that I feel more at home there, I felt it was time to mix my favorite guitar styles into something seamless, organic, and powerful.”

Released through Mascot Label Group, 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 sings a duet with Hoey.
