Madagascar is the latest film to feature the group as their music continues to find it's way into soundtracks for TV and movies like earlier productions of Crocodile Dundee and Pulp Fiction.

Here is a group of musicians who have remained friends and stayed together to build a body of work that rivals all comers. More than 90,000,000 sales and a 170 albums, CDs and tapes. It might be surprising to learn these Ventures actually outsold the Beatles 2-1 in Japan during the 1960's! What may be even more surprising is that today, 4 1/2 decades later they still perform to "sell out" crowds during their 4 month yearly concert tour of the island.

Venture hits include Wipeout, Pipeline, Telstar, Perfidia, Hawaii 5-0 and of course the classic Walk Don't Run.

The group is as of recent discussing accepting concert and club dates again here in the states.
