“Dark Eyes Rock” with the same arrangement as recorded on our CD album “Guitar Fun Version Two.” The amplifier is different and so is the tone. This video was recorded to clearly show both hands on the guitar.
You know that thrilling twangy speedy guitar solo in the middle of the song? The Insanitizers play solos like that for the entire 2 hr performance! Get the Fun, Sat June 3, 2017 9:30-11:30am, Vancouver Farmers Mkt, near corner 6th & Esther Sts downtown. Free. All ages. Relaxed. No ear protection needed.
Here we are performing at the Farmers Market in Vancouver. It was 48 degrees and raining at the start of our two hour performance. Eventually it stopped raining, but the temperature dropped. Here we’re picking and grinning our way through the song “Hawaii Tattoo.” Check those green shoes!

“New Gandy Dancer” Magazine from the U.K. just published a review of our “Guitar Fun” CD album (Oct 2016 issue 125). Editor Davy Peckett wrote, “We like The Insanitizers!…another jolly twangfest of no less than 22 great tracks. Good stroke having the keyboard-led Resonance to break up the guitars…The covers are delightful arrangements of Irish Washerwoman (and she rocks!) and the European classic Dark Eyes. Rocket Pack has a great Joe Meek guitar sound. Solid twin guitars with Malaguena. Misigila is the big surf sound…W-Ray Gun a deep resonant twanger finishes this fine set.” Rated 4/4.
Our “Guitar Fun” album is reviewed in Pipeline Magazine issue #102 Autumn 2016, just received. It’s a Top Ten Pick by editor Al Taylor. He writes, “a full hour of guitar fun…Rich guitar sounds abound as Shootout sets a western theme and Dark Eyes Rock gives the old folk tune a good working over. Tasty echo and twang decorate Rocket Pack…and there’s more rich guitar on Huntington Surf.”
“There’s a resonating guitar intensity to most numbers…organ plays the support role on Love in Purgatory…and it takes the lead on Resonance. Misigila is from the same dynamic mold as Misirlou. Waterboard Surf 2016 is another lively piece swathed with guitar and Loose Surfer features a pedalled lead. Listening to this album is a very intense experience, not for the fainthearted!”
