Witty guitar guru Hosty entertains with a tour schedule of 250 shows a year. Hosty simultaneously tears through gritty slide leads, blows harmonica and or Kazoo and uses foot pedals to stomp bass lines. His guitar collection includes an eight-string instrument that allows him to thump three bass strings with his thumb while he fingerpicks guitar. Hosty has developed a huge underground following of bikers, sorority gals, hippies and truckers.
Hosty has been featured on “The Jimmy Kimmel Show” during their filming of the Okie Noodling Festival in Pauls Valley. He was even featured on “The Tonight Show” Dumb Ad section for his One Man Band Routine with an ad that said, “Mike Hosty Plays with Himself”.
Stoney LaRue’s cover of “Oklahoma Breakdown”, written by Hosty and first appearing on Hosty Duo’s 2004 self-titled album, was a No.1 song on the Texas Music Charts for an entire year, beginning in April 2007.
