Members of The Ventures launch V2!


Instrumental band V2—featuring members of The Ventures, Bob Spalding and Leon Taylor—is kicking off a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo on February 23rd to raise funds towards producing a debut album and  to introduce itself to a worldwide fan base. 

The album will feature a balanced mix of classic instrumentals as well as new compositions. Featured guest artists on the album will include Eric Johnson (Out Of Limits, Pipeline), Adrian Belew (Telstar), and George Tomsco (Bulldog). 

Tracking for the album will begin in May 2015 under the direction of Grammy-nominated producer, Chris “Frenchie” Smith.

Perk offerings at various levels will include: Limited vinyl release; V2 limited edition Couch guitar strap (created only for the campaign and for featured musical guests); concert tickets; signed and numbered color print; private guitar lesson with Bob Spalding. There will also be limited perks such as picking a classic instrumental for V2 to record for the crowdfunded edition on the album (limit 3) and an Executive Producer credit (limit 4).

The campaign will run for 4 weeks and will be tracked as #VivaV2.
