The Ventures International Review

Mar, 11 2010

As most of us know, last year Gerry Woodage passed away.  Gerry had coordinated and published Ventures Resurgence Magazine for many years, and his passing left a void in the instro mag world.  Now, another intrepid British instrumental music aficionado, Tony Hoffman, has stepped up and decided to publish a new, full-color magazine that he is calling 'The Ventures Instrumental Review'.  We just received copies of Issue #1 and it's full of interviews, photos, reviews and articles.  Anyone interested in contacting Tony to purchase a copy, can do so at his e-mail address:, or by mail to: Tony Hoffman, 60 Bootham Crescent, York, YO30 7AH, England.  The price is 2.99 in the UK and 4.99 outside of the UK - that's British pounds, not dollars (but I can't figure out how to get the correct font to do that yet - sorry!)  Check out the cover below.
