The most popular pop instrumental band of all time. They hail from Olympia, Washington.
Very nice version of The House Of The Rising Sun:
They became very popular in Japan, and they continued to perform ever since. Here are a couple of more recent videos, one electric and one acoustic.
The Ventures have a few songs which stand out, like “Walk Don’t Run”, “Perfidia”, and “Hawaii Five-O”. My favorite happens to be “Yellow Jacket”. I tried to fill in their collection with a few lesser-known things I found interesting. Here’s the list:
