The Ventures Christmas Songs & Music

The best selling instrumental band of all time, Washington based The Ventures, were known for their surf rock, instrumental virtuosity and ground breaking guitar effects. When the band tried their hand at holiday music in 1965, they managed to incorporate all this and more into one of the most innovative and fun Christmas albums of all time.

1965: The Ventures Christmas Album

The Ventures’ one and only yuletide album is guaranteed to provide hours of entertainment at your next Christmas party- although with the record clocking in at only twenty-seven minutes, you might need to hit the repeat button! The quartet give the classic sixties rock and roll treatment to twelve of the most fun Christmas songs around, like Jingle Bell Rock and Frosty the Snow Man. What makes this album so enjoyable though, is the way The Ventures seamlessly weave licks from popular songs into their carols. One minute you are listening to I Feel Fine, then the next thing you know, it’s morphed into Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. They even manage to continue their tradition of starting their albums with Walk Don’t Run, by twisting their trademark hit into a rendition of Sleigh Ride. If you are a fan of sixties rock, or are after a very witty and humorous take on holiday music, this is the album for you.
