Frankie and The Poolboys play live in my front room!

I set up a show with Frankie, King of Hawaii and The Delstroyers tonight and I couldn't go because I am hooked up to a machine that makes noises when I am bad. So Ferenc and the band came and played a whole set in my front room. Unreal generosity from Ferenc, Karen and the rest of the band, I was speechless.

Los Venturas On Tour & New Release: Playtime!

image

After 18 years of playing, Los Venturas have marked their spot in the international scene of instrumental guitar music called ‘surf music’. That label however is too small for what the band brings its crowd: there’s exotica, balkan, ska, soul, rock ‘n roll, … Some have already uniquely labelled it ‘world surf music’. The band itself rather sticks with ‘penetrating guitar instrumentals™’. This unique fusion of styles has been approved by many crowds in Europe and over the Atlantic. Not to be surprised, as their accessible music guarantees good vibes. On top their many years of experience can be heard as a flawless live performance. In short, they know how to throw a party, in diverse settings and different stages, going from clubs to festivals, inland or at the seashore.

Their many years of writing music can be heard on 7 albums/singles that were released from 2001 on: Sharkfest, Aloha Summer, Surfers Brew, Besame Mucho, Kaleydoskop, Paisley Beach & Miles High. The last 3 albums were recorded and produced in Los Angeles by Pete Curry (Los Straitjackets, Jon & The Nightriders) and released under Green Cookie Records. This fall Green Cookie records and Los Venturas proudly present their 4th cooperation: “Playtime!”. Unlike the previous albums, this one is 100% made in Belgium: recorded at Nico Leonard’s Pum Pum Hotel in Charleroi, mixed at Great Oak Studios by Steven Van Gelder and produced by Sam Pieter Janssens.

Playtime! features 11 originals, each of them a world on its own thanks to the use of multiple instruments, techniques and the added value of some top notch guest appearances. It comes in white vinyl and CD. The first 100 LP’s come with an extra 7” featuring two alternative versions, dancefloor-proof! Whether you’re a DJ, collector, music lover or player, don’t hesitate to purchase your copy and… play it!!
