In My Room

The pandemic has put a stop to live concerts and touring for the moment. Many artists are filling the gap with internet performances. It seemed like a good idea to us. “In My Room”, a classic Beach Boys song that we all love, seemed a good choice since it’s a song about isolation; something we’re all experiencing right now. We’ve come up with a guitar version of the Beach Boys vocal arrangement.

Most people aren’t aware that Los Straitjackets are wizards at modern technology. That made it easy for us to learn and rehearse our parts online from our distant locations using the magic of the internet. We recorded our parts from our home computers with our video cameras in place. Pete did the final mix at his studio, the “Powow Fun Room”. We hope this performance brings you all joy as we spend time isolated at home these days.

Don’t worry, Los Straitjackets will be back on live stages once things return to normal.
Meanwhile… Stay Healthy Everyone!!

Los Straitjackets are the leading practitioners of the lost art of the guitar instrumental. Using the music of the Ventures, The Shadows, and like legends, with Link Wray and Dick Dale as a jumping off point, the band has taken their unique, high energy brand of original rock & roll around the world. Clad in their trademark Lucha Libre Mexican wrestling masks, the 'Jackets' have delivered their trademark guitar licks to 16 albums, thousands of concerts and dozens of films and TV shows.
