Listed as one of the top 100 guitarists of all time, one of Gary Hoey's biggest hits is the cover of Focus' "Hocus Pocus." Since 1993, Gary Hoey has released 19 albums, selling over a million units worldwide, including his recent CD 'Deja Blues’.

Hoey’s first break came in 1987 when Ozzy Osbourne showed up in Boston looking for a guitarist. Osborne liked Hoey’s tape enough to fly him to LA for an audition. The gig went to Zakk Wylde but Ozzy suggested Hoey move to LA after seeing his talent. He took Ozzy’s advice and with $17,000 he saved from teaching, Hoey loaded the U-Haul and drove across country to LA. In 1992 Hoey released “Heavy Bones” on Waner Brothers, a rock vocal album with Frankie Banali of Quiet Riot on drums. In 1993 he recorded “Animal Instinct”, the album which included a cover of the Focus hit, “Hocus Pocus”. Not only did the hit rocket into the Billboard Top 5, outpacing all other singles as the most frequently played rock song of the year, but the album went on to reach classic rock notoriety.

1994 Hoey scored the successful “Endless Summer II” soundtrack and had another radio hit with War’s “Low Rider.” Other film clients have included Walt Disney films, ESPN, New Line Cinema, scoring the music to “California Screaming” (Disney Roller Coaster), as well as songs placed in movies such as “Office Space,” “Deck the Halls” (Danny Devito), and Beethoven III.

Recently, Hoey produced and co-wrote Lita Ford’s latest release “Living Like Runaway” for SPV records to rave reviews. “It was a thrill to work with Lita… She is a true rocker and a pioneer for women in rock. And lastly, she’s a kick ass guitar player”.

To this day the guitar aficionado continues to tour extensively, endorsing Fender, Monster cable, GHS Strings and Rocktron to name a few. He has been involved with the Rock n Roll Fantasy Camp as music director to include his latest stint at Campalooza 2013, jammin’ with legends like Yngwie Malmsteen, Robben Ford, Leslie West of Mountain and Peter Criss of KISS. Hoey has toured and traded licks with the likes of Jeff Beck, Brian May of Queen, Joe Bonamassa, Ted Nugent, Joe Satriani, The Doobie Brothers, Foreigner, Styx, Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, Peter Frampton, and Dick Dale.
