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: firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
