Los Straitjackets is an American instrumental rock band from Nashville, Tennessee in 1988. Originally comprising guitarists Danny Amis (formerly of Raybeats) and Eddie Angel and drummer L. J. "Jimmy" Lester under the name The Straitjackets, the band split up soon after forming and 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; drummer Jason "Teen Beat" Smay replaced co-founding member Lester in 2005. Danny Amis is currently undergoing cancer treatment and has been temporarily replaced by Gregorio el Grande as co-lead guitarist. Los Straitjackets have made a career out of being one of the most dynamic and skillful instrumental bands on the planet. Their renowned live show is filled with mind-bending guitar theatrics, group choreography and fuzzed-out experiments in high fidelity rock n' roll showmanship.
The band is here today because they have of a lot of songs in Spanish, a tongue they talk very well. Nevertheless, they have an instrumental song that make me dream each time I hear it, the one so-called "Arizona sunset". This song is, doubtlessly, one of my favorites.
They have official webpage, Tweeter and Facebook
