Greg Hoy & The Boys, a punk pop band from East Bay, California, recently released the lead single and music video “Holy Mother of God” from their upcoming EP. Let’s check it out!

The RNR trio features Dave Sharma, a veteran ska icon, and the drummer from the renowned band The Skalars. They collaborated on an energetic rendition of “Holy Mother of God,” drawing inspiration from Eddie Spaghetti of The Supersuckers, who provided a new take on the song’s title, adding a fresh perspective to the narrative.

The music video, featuring the nun model Ashley Woolley and the band members Greg Hoy, Vicky Warwick, Jason Slota, and David E. Richman, offers a smooth and simple yet unique experience for the audience at Winters Tavern in Pacifica, CA. The audio was performed by Greg Hoy on guitar left, vocals, and piano, Tom Emmerling on bass guitar and drums, Paul Labrise on guitar right, and David E. Richman on cowbell and tambourine. The filming and direction of the music video were handled by Carissa Johnson of Fuel Heart Productions.

When you listen to “Holy Mother of God,” you’ll appreciate the emotive vocals and catchy guitar riffs. The solid bass and drum arrangement will set the tone and make you want to keep the track on repeat. It’s one of those rock tunes that I truly miss in today’s music scene.

Greg Hoy, an East Bay, CA-based songwriter, has collaborated with renowned producers and toured extensively in the US. His music draws comparisons to Jack White and Tom Petty.
