Los Straitjackets are the leading practitioners of the lost art of the guitar instrumental. Using the music of the Ventures, The Shadows, and with Link Wray and Dick Dale as a jumping off point, the band has taken their unique, high-energy brand of original rock & roll around the world.

Clad in their trademark Lucha Libre Mexican wrestling masks, the 'Jackets' have delivered their trademark guitar licks to 16 albums, thousands of concerts and dozens of films and TV shows. Viva Los Straitjackets!

The Chuckleberries

The members are long time rock and roll royalty. Singer/drummer Russell Quan is perhaps most famous for his work with The Mummies (formed in 1988), but he also rocks with his long-haired, vest-wearin' Deutschband The Dukes of Hamburg, the Phantom Surfers, the Count Backwards, the Bobby Teens and the Flakes. He is also often spotted around town doing his fabulous DJ thing, or simply bouncing about at live shows. Killer guitarist Jay Rosen appears alongside Klaus Flouride when backing up the Legendary Stardust Cowboy. He sells guitars and amps (mostly vintage) and has proclaimed it "Jangle Pop". Frontman Dave Seabury has played with everyone from Jonathan Richman to Psycotic Pineapple. Vocalist and bass player young David Kurtz is the founding member of the band Whateverglades.

The whole crew is endlessly devoted to live music.
