Are you tired of the same old Christmas music year after year? The same old traditional songs being played over and over? Are you looking to make your Christmas rock a little more? Maybe you're looking for some Christmas music that you can surf too? Congrats. Your search is over. Wonder Weird has a super fun Christmas album created by a rockin' group of musicians decked in Mexican wrestling masks.
Tis The Season for Los Straitjackets is the sixth studio album by Los Straitjackets and was released on Oct 8, 2002. This rock and roll, surf rock Christmas album is sure to rock all the Christmas balls right off your tree! Packed with 13 Christmas Instrumentals, mixing classic and original tunes, every track on this album is a great vintage throw back to the 60's surf music scene.
Who are these masked men and what are they all about? Los Straitjackets is an instrumental rock band that formed in Nashville, Tennessee in 1988. Originally comprised of guitarists Danny Amis, (formerly of Rabbets) Eddie Angel, and drummer L. J. "Jimmy" Lester under the name The Straitjackets, the band split up soon after forming. They later reunited as Los Straitjackets in 1994 with the addition of bassist E. Scott Esbeck. Esbeck left the band in 1998 and was replaced by Pete Curry. The current lineup also features Greg Townson on guitar and Chris Sprague on drums.
This band really is a great LIVE ACT and a MUST-SEE show. Most of the Wonder Weird officemates have seen Los Straitjackets many times and every show did not disappoint. Sometimes they have dancers, sometimes they have singers, but every show is a fun surf dance party that gets the whole audience moving and grooving. Now that you have had a taste of their live performance, Let's take a listen to one of the tracks off this great Christmas album.
Make your Christmas rock a little more this year and get this great surf music now!!!
