Hey all!

I'm stoked to announce that Dionysus Records will be releasing a Martini Kings vinyl LP titled "Palm Springs Serenade", containing the best tracks from their CDs as chosen by the group, with SHAG cover art, in July. The LPs will be available from Dionysus Mail Order, the band, select shops, Amazon, etc. Release date is July 10, there will be a record release party (and closing party for Brad "Tiki Shark" Parker's art show) at La Luz de Jesus on July 29. Records will also be available at Surf Guitar 101 and Tiki Oasis.



Here's the entire press release with details about the release, the limited run of clear vinyl copies, etc!

The Martini Kings’ first vinyl LP, Palm Springs Serenade, will be released by Dionysus Records on July 10. The LP features cover art by SHAG. The band will play a record release party (and closing for Brad “Tiki Shark” Parker’s art show) at La Luz de Jesus Gallery on July 29, details here.

With over eight self-released CDs and gigs-a-plenty, it’s about time that Los Angeles based jazzy-retro-exotica-bossa-nova-cocktail-lounge combo The Martini Kings make an appearance on the beloved vinyl format. In their professional existence, The Martini Kings have performed events for the likes of Clint Eastwood, Stephen King, The Getty Center, Mattel and Universal Studios, had their music in HBO’s “Entourage” and made an appearance during the Malibu cliff-top wedding scene in the ”Six Feet Under’‘ season curtain-raiser. The Martini Kings’ Marsico brothers have performed in backing groups with Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Marianne Faithful. Martini Kings bassist Tony Marsico was in East LA punk legends The Plugz and The Cruzados, and played bass behind Bob Dylan on David Letterman’s show.

Their pro-resume aside, The Martini Kings are also loved among tiki and retro aficionados and are a staple at the yearly Tiki Oasis weekender, numerous burlesque, lounge events and backyard tiki parties. They have the technique and sound down to a fine art and in the process inject equal amounts of heart and soul into their craft. The instrumentation is centered around vibes, stand-up bass and percussion with tasty arrangements including piano, guitar, wind and stringed instruments.

“Palm Springs Serenade” is a collection of the group’s favorite tracks from their CD releases and features a track recorded with lounge legend and former Rat Pack member Buddy Greco. The art of their pal SHAG adorns the album cover and visually fits the combo’s sound from top to bottom. And, the sound on this album which was cut on a vintage Scully lathe with the legendary Westrex B3 stereo cutting head is huge and open with lots of warm low-end. The album jacket is printed vintage style; front cover slick on thick board… this is not your ordinary one piece fabricated album jacket but the Martini Kings / SHAG combination deserves no less. A coupon for a digital download is included in this package.

Black vinyl 180 gram LPs will be shipped to Dionysus Records’ distribuor, ILD (Independent Label Distribution). A limited edition of 100 CLEAR VINYL LPs will be avalible from the band and through Dionysus Records Mailorder only – on JULY 10!

I've not announced this to the public yet but I'm letting TC'ers know here - in a couple of days I'll hit Facebook and send out an email blast.

The Martini Kings albums are in - they are not officially released yet but here's the links to purchase from Dionysus Mail Order

The edition of 100 - clear vinyl version, these will not go through my distributor
http://dionysusrecords.com/shop/index.php?_a=product&product_id=2999

The 180 gram black vinyl version
www.dionysusrecords.com/shop/index.php?_a=product&product_id=3000

I'll be bringing both versions to SG101 and Tiki Oasis (if there are any left of the clear vinyl versions...)
