Focus Hocus Pocus

Let’s have a bit of fun (because we all need that on a Monday morning!). For this week’s music post I thought I would share a song that is timeless, unique, and highly energetic, and that had a big impact on my development as a guitarist and musician.

Focus were a Dutch rock band hailing from Amsterdam who made their mark on the global music scene in the 1970’s. If you haven’t heard their biggest hit ‘Hocus Pocus’ before, well, now’s your chance. Believe me – this is essential viewing!

Enjoy the song and let me know what you think in the comments πŸ™‚


  1. Hah. I am very well familiar with this song! This was a number 1 hit here in the States during my high school days. 1973. Some of the guys are still active! Good one, Steven!

    1. I had a feeling you might know this song. I can’t believe they would still be able to perform it at that speed with that kind of gusto though! Pretty amazing musicianship πŸ™‚

  2. Thanks for expanding my musical appreciation! Never heard that song or heard of the band before. That was great! Even threw in a little flute for good measure! I can dig it!
