Nightvision bass player Dean Hocking has passed away in a car accident in the early hours of Thursday 27th December. The accident occurred near Sleaford, Lincolnshire where Nightvision is based and although the accident proved fatal for Dean who was  passenger in the car, we understand the driver and one other passenger survived.

Our thoughts and deepest condolences go out to Daryl Hocking, Dean’s brother and fellow band member (drummer), as well as the rest of his family and friends.

Dean was an exceptional and gifted young bassist with his own style, greatly admired by his peers and an integral part of the Nightvision sound.  Dean will be hugely missed and always remembered with affection not only for his skills but also for some great times on the road where his sense of fun and thirst for life came to the fore.
