The Hook is a four-eyed, original and original cover band from Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania! From roots to blues and rock to reggae, The Hook pairs a simple, sweet yet somewhat grunge-y sound with catchy hooks, harmonies and raw, accessible lyrics.

With influences ranging from Sublime to Foo Fighters, The Strokes, The Black Keys, Jack White,  Motown and classic rock icons (The Temptations, Gloria Gaynor, The Beatles, The Kinks, The Doors, Led Zeppelin and more), The Hook finds that sweet spot, and keeps you there.
