The TakeOffs / Bio

The TakeOffs, Ron Rhoades-guitar, John Hunt-bass, Conrad Mathews-drums and Billy Mello-guitar all hail from the Pacific Island of Kauai and have been performing live instrumental surf shows for more than six years at concerts, clubs and lounges throughout the Island.
They play a mix of old school first wave classics and contemporary instrumental surf music along with some of the all-time instrumental greats from artists like Duane Eddy, The Ventures, The Shadows and more as well as their own originals.
They have just released their first Studio CD 'Blue Avalanche' which contains 14 instrumental surf tunes...9 originals and 5 covers including the Mort Stevens anthem "Hawaii Five-O".
The CD is available at: http://www.doublecrownrecords.com/ and also at: http://www.deepeddy.net/ and will be available at CD Baby and other fine digital institutions very soon. Two of their originals "GoOfY fOoT" and "Avila" are on their music player here at Reverb Nation. You may also purchase the CD from the band themselves at http://www.thetakeoffs.com
