Here is a salute to Ken Dresher (d2019), rock-and-roll musician from Minnesota notable for his dynamic drumming as driving force behind the Ventures-inspired guitars of his band, The Revtunes; and creator of video farce with Ken’s spoof The Surf Toads.
This recently assembled tribute to Ken spotlights ten electrifying live instrumental tracks of The Revtunes at Minneapolis’ legendary 7th Street Entry in 1987, a band set list with Ken Dresher originals (Ride the Solar Wind; Hyper-Intension), revved instrumental classics like Out of Limits, Penetration and can Ken kick serious drum on Wipe Out?

Ken also produced a 45 single check out on YouTube The Revtunes playing the A-side, The Twomp:
