Rockin Christmas Tunes

48 posts in this topic

Twas 10 days before Christmas and all through the house......EVERYONE was stirring, even the F^&*'n mouse......Why? :rolleyes: ......they were Rockin' to Gary Hoey!!! :(:D

Snaildarter, Strega and I went to a smokin' hot Christmas concert last Friday.......sounds weird huh? :(:blink: .......hard to picture smokin' hot guitar licks applied to Christmas tunes.......but Gary Hoey gives Christmas music a whole new sound/vibe.......he was in town at the Jumping Turtle last Friday and we were lucky enough to catch the "Sled of Shred" show.....

Check out this video of Gary playing “You’re a Mean One Mr. Grinch” on a Boston news station on Wednesday of last week:

Anyway, thought I'd share if you've never heard of him and you're ready to update your Christmas CD collection………Christmas music was never the same around my house after I picked up my first "Ho Ho Hoey" CD almost 10 years ago......my kids have grown up listening to his rockin' covers of traditional Christmas tunes in addition to the standard versions.....

You can pick up his "Best of" Ho Ho Hoey CD from his website: http://garyhoey.com/discography/ho-ho-hoey...ete-collection/

Happy Holidays & Rock On!

Been listening to Ho Ho Hoey for quite a while myself, I have three of his Christmas albums and a few of his regular albums too. The guy is a guitar god.

Was a very good show, and even the power on stage went out a few times and he kept right on singing. Good times all around.

This is the first I have heard of him, thank you. I think my wife will also like him as well as my 13 year old. You have spared me.

I'm on my way to get his CD.

Chris don't forget my wife is the one who makes custom Elvis running suits for the Rock n Roll marathon..that was you that said you wanted to run as one of the Elvis runners, right?

I was born on Dec 31st and I got my namesake from not only the Bible but my Dad's favorite Christmas special with the title to this song. It's much more mellow than your post probably called for but David Bowie used to rock! :rolleyes:

My Dad's been gone for nearly 20 years now and yes I get watery eyed when I see a Christmas tree and hear the original and think of how much I miss him...

Remember who is the reason for this season ! :blink:

Concert is one week from yesterday (Wed 16th).......Belly up isn't that big of a place and tickets for this show are cheap.....so anyone thinking about going might want to snag tix in advance before it sells out (I did)

Another video/Xmas tune for you to crank up in your office:

Yep we were there. It was an amazing show and the opening band was rocking too. We ended up in standing room only, but had a few big groups mingling around. We hung around after and now have an autographed Gary Hoey CD to play for Xmas.

Thanks for putting Hoey on my radar!
