When it comes to delivering high-energy rock and roll instrumental music, no one equals the finesse, power and perseverance of Grammy-nominated group Los Straitjackets. The legendary surf rockers released their 12th studio album, Jet Set (Yep Roc Records), this past August to critical praise.
Los Straitjackets recently wrapped up a North American tour, where they were joined for the first time in two years by founding member Danny Amis aka Daddy O-Grande, after he was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in 2010. Following chemotherapy and a successful stem cell transplant, Amis is pleased to report that he is healthy and in partial remission.
We are glad to hear that, Danny!
