Before the Beach Boys there were The Ventures. Ask most young people in the U.S. these days and they'd probably think you were talking about venture capitalists. The Ventures, however, are still touring Japan and have many loyal followers. The Tohno Ventures is a tribute band that plays extremely well and is very entertaining.
The Ventures may not be known anymore in the U.S. but their classic surf music is licensed in ever so many films of the past as well as commercials.
They definitely have a niche market here in Japan. They've been touring here since becoming world famous ever so many years ago. While The Ventures may not be touring in the U.S. or other countries around the world they have been consistently making their annual touring pilgrimage to the land of the rising sun since their beginning fame.
