CURTIS JENSEN  - NEITHER RETRO NOR VINTAGE  - ROCK-A-BILLY-SURF-N-BLUES  - SINCE NINETYEIGHT !


STORY IN PROGRESS.....


1998 the band kick off with a Pub‘n‘Club Tour -  200 gigs in 20 months!

Mixing original material with their favourite Quentin Tarantino movies songs  (Pulp Fiction, Resevoir Dogs, Desperado, True Romance, From Dusk till Dawn, etc..) made them the hottest rock‘n‘roll band in Vienna in shortest time. Curtis Jensen were the first live band to be featured at the Tarantino Movie Night at cult club U4 in Vienna. Soon dancehalls all over the country called for “Tarantino Nights“. As the venues got bigger, Curtis Jensen stayed true to the pubs who gave them the opportunity at the begining. “No place too small - No place too big“  just that the audience could change from 2500 to 150 persons over night.

When the big companies and lables set in  -  they were getting really busy !


1999 Finair invited Curtis Jensen to play at the Hartwall Arena in Helsinki. Das Österreichische Bundeskanzleramt booked them to play at Heldenplatz. They played Open air Am Graben for the Austro-Irish Society and numerous of Busines Events for Armstrong, just to put a name on some of it.


2002 they released the first album. Supported by Kingpin, Chrysler and a number of local skateboard / beachcruiser / hotrod dealers, “From Pulp Til Dawn“ hits the scene like a storm. Their tuned-up versions of Tarantino movie songs seemed to be right on the spot and the release party at the cult location U4 in Vienna was a huge success !


2006 the band released the second album “Original Soundtrash“ containing original songs only.

The single track “Linger if you‘re torn“ was the first original Curtis Jensen song to have international radio-airplay.


2008 the album “JNSN! UnderCover“ 14 songs featured on their 3 months winter tour in alps - recorded and mixed in 24 hours.

Due to cover versions only, the band decided to keep it self-labled.


2012 Curtis Jensen hits Italy with the third album. Shortly before the tour “Gaining The Edge“ was released.

All original songs. For first time the band focus on digital distrubution.  11.000 downloads were the result.
