The Hook is here all the way from Lehigh Valley, PA on a 10 day trip across the country. Why do they have three shows in Salem? Well, The Hook has a Salem connection: guitarist and singer, Carlos Barata lived in Salem for a spell, when he helped the Grand Theatre get off the ground. He had big plans for live music there, but a family tragedy called him back home. But he’s back in the music swing of things with his new band and their first LP, “Moonshine and Honey.” Their sound is upbeat rock with hints of reggae and may I say a little Dead in there too. #readysetgethooked
