and optionally gentlemen.
Today I'd like to introduce my musician friend.
Sorry, the image is a little pixelly... Damn my I-phone 4!
By the way,
It's surprising fact that
I used to play rock music and playing a rock band.
Or it's not surprising at all 'coz I very much look like
a classical noble man.
I used to lead the rock band
I no longer do that unfortunately.
Now I took the name and logo for my "company."
a company with quotations.
But the logo
is actually shown on top right of this website, too.
There were so many reasons for not doing that at all...
Ryo is my friend since we both went to same school and met in one of a home party.
He is an awesome drummer!
Awesome in both...
skill and professional attitude!
In music school,
There are a lot of skillful people.
only few of them has matured personality and actually behave like a
There are a lot of people like,
accepting an offer and not showing up gigs,
come to the gig without learning music,
cancelling the gig in last minute.
Just saying "oh sorry I know it's last minute..."
Not even say that much just disappear!!
Sick of that type of thing!!
Ryo is not like that.
Not at all!
Once he accepted an offer,
he learns music before first the rehearsal,
knowing your piece better than you know! lol
Funny but it's true!
As a drummer,
he was already a pro in Japan.
He was touring all over Japan under pro contract with a recording company.
He's used to playing every single day.
So his skill is NO doubt!!!
He has great combination of pro-skill and pro-attitude that is
required to all pro-musician but unfortunately
not many people have that.
It's not surprising that
he successfully making his life in pro music industry!!
Last night, he played for the band called
They call themselves:
"Japanese action comic punk"
It is true!!
Their performance was so
The lead vocalist who reminds me of
"Tokyo shock boys"
knows how to make people laugh by MC.
They jumped off the stage and drag all audience into
I enjoyed the show a lot!
It was nice fun moment in a boring routine-based-life!
They have been playing around NY area for 10 years now.
they play in SXSW (South by South West Music conference)
in austin texas!
I went SXSW 10 years ago when I lived in San Antonio...
That was fun.
I went to guitar wolf show but I didn't know about them.
I wish I knew about them at the time...
It was good, I experienced
Even though it was Thursday night,
the venue was packed with good amount of people.
The crowd laughing and smiling all the time.
Definitely good vibes filled up the venue!!
Their fun performance already calling reputation!
It seemed like the performers were so happy doing this.
Ryo, absolutely looks enjoying doing this!
I'm pretty sure I'll come back to their show one more time!
if you look for something really fun with not that much money costs,
I highly recommend "Peelander-Z" show!
Just saying random things...
