Albert Lee & Hogan's Heroes
This multi-talented band features some of the top musicians in the UK. Hogan's Heroes was formed by their namesake Gerry Hogan over 20 years ago, specifically to back Albert.
Their first gig took place in 1987 at Gerry’s annual festival for pedal steel guitar. They have played together on a regular basis since that time, and as a result have become one of the tightest units in music. Click here for the Hogan's Heroes website.
