Joe Satriani
Joe Satriani
Joe Satriani has been a worldwide guitar hero since his 1987 breakthrough album, Surfing with the Alien. Over 10-million albums and CD’s later, in addition to 14 Grammy nominations and numerous accolades Satriani continues to push the envelope of modern rock guitar playing.

Although he originally started his career by teaching some of the top rock guitar players of the '80s and '90s like Metallica’s Kirk Hammet and virtuoso Steve Vai, Joe Satriani is universally hailed as one of the most technically accomplished and respected guitar players in rock. Satriani, who cites Jimi Hendrix as a major influence, quickly established himself as one of rock’s most influential guitarists.

Since the release of Surfing with the Alien in 1987, Satriani has continually been voted the best guitarist in leading guitar magazine readers’ polls. Chosen by Mick Jagger to perform worldwide on Mick’s first solo tour, and by Deep Purple to tour Japan and Europe, Satriani cemented his reputation as a true guitar hero.

After releasing several critically acclaimed solo albums, in 1996, Satriani embarked on the first G3 showcase tour, which became an instant success. G3 have performed sold out tours in North America, Europe, South America, Japan and Australia, and have released three live G3 DVDs.

In 2009 Joe teamed up with Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony of Van Halen plus Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers to form Chickenfoot. The band’s debut album was an international success, receiving gold awards in the US, Canada and Europe, plus recognition from Classic Rock Magazine as The Best New Band of 2009.

Joe released his 11th studio album Black Swans and Wormhole Wizards in October 2010 and followed this with extensive North American and European tours. The following year, Chickenfoot’s second album, III, was released to critical acclaim on 27th September.

In January 2012, Satriani embarked on a European tour with Chickenfoot. By April 2012, he released the DVD/Blu-Ray of his much talked about 3D concert film Satchurated: Live In Montreal. During the same year, he embarked on G3 tours of Europe and Australia with Steve Vai and Steve Lukather.

On 22nd September 2012 Satriani performed at the 50 Years of Marshall tribute concert in honour of the late Jim Marshall, at London’s Wembley Arena which also included Paul Gilbert, Zakk Wylde, Glenn Hughes, Yngwie Malmsteen, Doug Aldrich, Billy Duffy, Nicko McBrain, Corey Taylor, Brian Tichy, Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens, Mike Portnoy, Andy Fraser and Kerry King.

The upcoming European tour coincides with the news that Satriani will record a new solo album later this year for a worldwide release via Sony in May 2013. The enterprising guitarist is also in the planning stages of releasing a career retrospective box set for spring 2013.
Gary Hoey
Gary Hoey
Multi-tasking as writer, producer and guitar player, Hoey has had clients who include DISNEY, ESPN, NO FEAR, performed the National Anthem for the SAN DIEGO PADRES and the BOSTON REDSOX. Hoey's first break came when Ozzy Osbourne showed up in Boston looking for a guitarist. Osbourne liked Hoey's tape enough to fly him to LA for an audition. Three months after the audition, he was heading west in a U-Haul, with seventeen thousand dollars in his pocket from teaching guitar and nowhere to go once he got to L.A.

In 1993 Gary Hoey launched his career with the hit song "Hocus Pocus." his fiery technique helped to send it to the top 5 on Billboards charts, The Boston raised guitarist covered the tune on his debut album, Animal Instinct (Warner Bros Records), transforming Hoey, a then-struggling player into a cult hero. He followed with the soundtrack to the surf saga Endless Summer II (Warner/Reprise), which cemented his status as a demi-god among surfers. Even Dick Dale, the surf-guitar king gave Hoey his blessing, proclaiming him his favorite modern guitarist.

Hoey has maintained that status with a series of blood-boiling albums that are heavy on riffage while upholding the basic rock-and-roll values of melodies, hooks, and heart. Hes also diversified, creating his popular Ho! Ho! Hoey series of Christmas CDs.

Hoey has toured and traded licks with the likes of Brian May (Queen), Ted Nugent, Foreigner, Joe Satriani, The Doobie Bros, Kenny Wayne Shepard, Eric Johnson, Steve Vai, and Peter Frampton to name a few.
