Back in June at the amazing and fun Surfer Joe Festival 2023 we met up with Berlin based Aloha Shirt maker Micky Oye. We soon found out while sippin' Italian Zombie cocktails that El Ray needed a boost of Micky Oye mojo on stage and the Oye business needed some El Ray mojo back. So here we are in a sweet co-op with a bunch of totally freakin' good looking Aloha shirts. We'll wear these on stage and of course in private all the time. Check out the Micky Oye Aloha Shirt online shop here. Handmade shirts made in Germany.

20 years ago today we had our first release party on August 17th, 2002 in Baden Baden record store which was located in central Copenhagen.

Our debut album ‘Shoot From The Hip’ contained remastered songs from our first demo-EP ‘El Frank Francesco D’Angelo’ that we did the year before plus newly recorded songs. All played live in no time in a Copenhagen rehearsal room/studio with Marc Alexander producing and releasing on his Alternate Records label. It was all damn good fun and very interesting times because the album led us to go and play shows many places in Europe the following years meeting crazy beautiful people and hearing great bands we had no clue of existed.

2002 line-up was: El Fuerte - drums, El Doc'torro - bass, El Firetone - guitar, El Twang - guitar

On September 18th we'll go to Leipzig and play the 6th Sensational Surfbash. Last year the festival was cancelled, This year we plan to double up on the energy and get those Germans up and dancing.
