Co-founded by Bob Bogle and Don Wilson, The Ventures became a highly influential instrumental group that scored many hit records.
The Seattle-based group consisted of original line-up members Bob Bogle (lead guitar), Don Wilson (rhythm guitar), Nokie Edwards (bass) and Howie Johnson (drums). They appeared on the charts a total of 24 times between 1960 and scored four Top Twenty hits.
