Special Guest: Charlie Farren




Born and raised in Lowell MA, rock and blues guitarist, Gary Hoey releases his latest album, Dust and Bones this summer which will be on Mascot Label Group/Provogue. "I'm very excited to be on a guitar driven label that has some of the greats that I admire like Warren Haynes, Joe Bonamassa, Eric Johnson and many more. It's going to be a great follow-up to Deja Blues.

Hoey's first break came in 1987 when Ozzy Osbourne liked Hoey's tape enough to fly him to LA for an audition to join his band. In 1992, Hoey released Heavy Bones on Warner Brothers, a rock vocal album with Frankie Banali on drums from Quiet Riot. In 1993, Hoey recorded the successful Animal Instinct album. His cover of "Hocus Pocus" rocketed into the Billboard's Top 5 Rock Tracks.

With a collection of 19 albums it's no wonder Gary Hoey is listed as one of the top 100
guitarists of all time. 1994 Hoey scored the successful Endless Summer II soundtrack for New Line Cinema. Other clients have included Walt Disney, ESPN, scoring the music to "California Screaming" (Disney Roller Coaster), and songs in movies "Office Space," "Deck the Halls" (Danny Devito), and "Beethoven III".

In 2012, Hoey produced and co-wrote The Queen Of Metal, Lita Ford's latest release
"Living Like Runaway" to rave reviews. "It was a thrill to work with Lita... She is a true rocker and a pioneer for woman in rock. And lastly, she's a kick ass guitar player."

To this day the guitar aficionado continues to tour extensively, endorsing Fender guitars
and amps, Monster Cable, GHS Strings, Rocktron to name a few. As Music Director for
Rock 'n Roll Fantasy Camp, he's worked with legends like Joe Perry, Roger Daltrey,
Rudy Sarzo, Vinny Appice, Johnny Winter, Robben Ford, Leslie West, and KISS drummer Peter Criss. Hoey has toured and traded licks with the likes of Jeff Beck, Brian May of Queen, Joe Bonamassa, Ted Nugent, The Doobie Brothers, Joe Satriani, Foreigner, Styx, Steve Vai, Eric Johnson, Peter Frampton, and Dick Dale.

Special Guest: Charlie Farren

Charlie Farren opens the show. He has long been known for great songs, great singing, and for outstanding live solo acoustic performances. Charlie's solo performances have the energy and fun of a rock show, while maintaining in intimacy that makes for an entertaining and memorable evening. Charlie Farren emerged onto the national scene in the early '80s as lead singer and guitarist with The Joe Perry Project. In that band, Charlie established himself as one of the hottest young singers to emerge from the Boston music scene, writing the hits "Listen To The Rock" and "East Coast, West Coast" and "I've Got The Rock And Rolls Again".

In 1986 Charlie, along with Dave Hull (Joe Perry Project) and John Muzzy, formed Farrenheit and released a self-titled debut album on Warner Brothers. Three singles from that album, "Fool in Love", "Bad Habit", and "Lost in Loveland", as well as video exposure on MTV, established Farrenheit as one of the premier new rock acts, and winning them the opening slot for the sold-out Third Stage tour by the band Boston in 1987.

Now working on what will be his 17th CD, Charlie has been described as contagious, displaying a candor rarely demonstrated by former arena rock stars. "It's clear he has not lost the ability to captivate a room full of people no matter what the size," writes Tom Dempsey of SoundCheck magazine. Charlie continues to be one of America's most original and compelling musical artists.
