- Surf Music
Help us meet our monthly goal:
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!!

After the success of last year's inaugural Surfer Joe tour of Japan, the international Surf Music Ambassador continues to live up to his name and returns to Japan once again for an even longer tour! The 2018 tour will visit even more far-reaching locations including Kokura, Fukuoka, and Hiroshima and will be highlighted by performances from some amazing Surf colleagues including The Surf Coasters, The El Caminos, Lulufin The Woo Hoo, The WHYs, The Fuzziyama Surfers, The Surf Vader, The Palms, Switch Trout, BCV and more! In addition, on this tour Surfer Joe will be joined by a bi-coastal American rhythm section consisting of his longtime collaborator Jonpaul Balak (Insect Surfers, Tikiyaki Orchestra) on bass, and Vincent Minervino (Black Flamingos, Royal Pacifics) on drums!
