In 1995 the first Gary Ho Ho Hoey album was released. Hoey's idea to put a rock edge on Christmas classics was inspired by his mother’s love for Christmas and growing up in Lowell MA with his four sisters. “With the last name, Hoey, I decided one day to record an album called Ho Ho Hoey and re-do some of my favorite Christmas classics with a rock guitar." It was an instant hit at radio and sold over 350,000 copies and has been a staple at most rock stations around the country ever since. "I love doing the Ho Ho Hoey Rockin Holiday Tour every year because I get to give back and help folks with various charities and toy drives. It allows me to help communities and have some fun at the same time. And it’s Hoey’s loyal fan base and his connection with them that keeps him going. “I come out after every show to meet the fans,” says Hoey. “I enjoy the feedback and interaction.”

Gary will also be performing songs from his latest release, Deja Blues, available now on Wazoo Music Group. “This is an album of original blues songs I’ve wanted to record for a long time. The Blues has always been near and dear to my heart. I have so much respect for it. When I’m recording a blues song, it’s a 5 minute journey and you can’t take a breath, you can’t keep punching in the recording button to fix stuff or it loses the vibe.”

Hoey is also raising awareness for our homeless vets with two clothing drives:

December
6-7 – Clothing Drive for Detroit Veterans in need
13th – Salisbury, MA – Blue Ocean Music Hall - Ho Ho Hoey fans can help veterans at stay warm this year. Show your support and bring by your donated items to the venue. They will benefit the New England Center for Homeless Veterans. Vets are in need of coats, gloves, scarves, hats, sweaters, long johns, socks, boots, blankets and more.
