I’ve been a huge fan of Los Straitjackets since I first discovered them in 1996. This weekend they are performing at our local annual folk festival. Of course I was front and center for their first set. The lineup of musicians has changed over the years but original member Eddie Angel still fronts the group with longtime bass player Pete Curry. Others current members Gregorio (Greg Townson, guitar) and Gringo Starr (Chris Sprague, drums) rounded out the lineup. They played their signature DiPinto Galaxie models through Fender Deluxe Reverbs (Ampeg refridgerator stack for Mr. Pete). As you might expect it was entertaining and super-tight. Love this band to pieces! On a related note, I want to share that founding guitarist Danny “Daddy O Grande” Amis isn’t doing well. He’s been recovering from a bad infection and could use your help.
