‘Los Venturas’ started out in 1998 as ‘Harley and The Revtones’. Playing mostly 60s double-picked instro-tunes they aimed to conquer the Belgian surf scene. The same month they did their first gig, 2 demo-tracks were recorded under the supervising eye of John Blair (!). Sadly these tracks have never been released on CD or vinyl, but maybe someday they will appear on a rarities album…

By the end of 1999 Los Venturas was formed after a bassist-switch and a change of name, as ‘Harley and The Revtones’ would wrongly be associated with the motorcycle-brand. The new name had to sound fresh, warm, ad-venturous and exotic. So Los Venturas has nothing to do with The Ventures, 60s-band The Venturas, Jim Carrey’s alter ego ‘Ace’ or the city with the same name.

Meanwhile they had found their specific sound and started making own compositions. In 2001 these Belgian youngsters released their first 4-track vinyl-only EP ‘ Sharkfest’. For some already a classic in neo-surf.

For their full-album ‘Aloha Summer’, Los Venturas wanted to attend that classic 60s surfsound. In early 2003 they went on a trip to London to record in Liam Watson’s famous Toe Rag Studio (think of The White Stripes’ much praised album Elephant, also recorded in Toe Rag…).

Still chasing the sparkle of instrumental power, people came, people went, some traded their instruments, but they all switched into high gear and ventured forth into the vast realm of instro-rock.

Touring in Italy, England, Switzerland, Holland, Luxemburg, Germany, France, Austria, Greece, the Czech Republic, … they sure have marked their spot in the European instrumental scene. Los Venturas have shared the stage with The Surfaris, The Trashmen, Slacktone, Jon and The Nightriders, Leighton Koizumi (The Morlocks), De Heideroosjes, Bee Dee Kay and The Roller Coaster and many many more.

The 2011 release "Kaleydoskop" was recorded in Pete Curry’s ‘Pow Wow Fun Room’, Los Angeles and contains eight originals and three covers.
