Joel Hoekstra, is a guitarist's guitarist in the true sense of the world. This guy has turned his hand to so many different styles, playing blues, jazz, rock and even with Broadway stage productions.
Initially starting out teaching guitar, before getting
involved in various stage productions, releasing his own solo albums along the way, then getting chosen to jam along some of the best in rock, with Jim Peterik's (Survivor, Ides of March, Pride of Lions) World Stage project to where he is today, being the other half of Night Ranger's twin lead attack alongside huge player, Brad Gillis!
Oh, he also has joined Trans-Siberian Orchestra on tour for the past two years and still worked his way into playing on Broadway in the original stage production of 'Rock of Ages,' in between gigs with the aforementioned two major acts ...!
How does he do it all and where does it end ... Or does it?
Read on folks, this was an excellent chat with the man ...
