HOOKiE is a 3 piece rock band based out of Alton, IL -- the up and coming rock-and-roll capital of the free world.
HOOKiE has been digging, uncovering and discovering their distinct sound the same way all the great rock bands did when rock bands were truly great -- by playing and bastardizing cover songs. Night after night, hour after hour, song after song, riff after riff, spilled beer after spilled beer, and drunken dancer after drunken dancer they have been honing the HOOKiE sound and learning to listen, and play off each other. The key word being "play" -- when HOOKiE is in their groove they are PLAYING music. It's not work, it's not over calculated - it's play. Each member has mastered their individual instruments but does not need to prove this to the listener. They keep the vibe loose and intensely grooving at the same time. One gets the impression they can play whatever they want, and what they want is to make you move.
HOOKiE's debut album, "600", released late Dec 2017 is available for download here.
