GARY HOEY'S HO HO HOEY’S ROCKIN HOLIDAY TOUR 2022

For over 25 years of the Ho Ho Hoey Rockin’ Holiday Tour, this must see show has become a tradition with radio stations and families coast-to-coast 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.  After more than two decades of touring it’s also made him fortunate enough to give back in the process, helping the Veterans with clothing drives, Toys for Tots and food drives.

Hoeys music is featured in Hallmark greeting cards and the Christmas movie, "Deck The Halls" staring Danny Devito.  Hoey's rockin holiday show is a family friendly all ages event. Get together and celebrate this holiday season asonly Hoey can. Don't miss this exciting show.
