2011 New Year's party !

It was little late New Year's party.
We have decided to hold New Year's party every year.
It was held all right this year too.
That means the band is also all right, isn't it ?
Fortunately !
This year's party was Shabu-shabu (One pot-dish of Japan) party.
It was so good !
We and our friends had it fully.

After party, we moved to the live bar called "slowhand", to watch the live of Yun-chan's new band "(strange) gritty human".
Her new band was so good !
Songs affect a heart pensivly.
We look forward to thier future work.
Look once by all mean, everyone.

Well now, we are writing new songs.
We hope to include interesting ideas that we found last year in our new songs.
We'll deliver happy music and space in this year too.
It's all right to listen slowly and carefully, and also it's OK to make noise.
Please continue your favors toward us this year !

That was excited night !
All costars were experienced bands !
We worked hard to play the music !

On this time too, slap bassist, Funky B. Yohichi came again !
Thank you so much.
The songs we played were same as last time, but we introduced the lights effect to our performance.
The stage was changed to darkness, and slap bass solo and rhythm were sounding !
Did you think it was an accident ?
It was rendition that uses that the ear becomes sensitive when the sight is deprived in the dark.
Were you enjoyed ?

There was a lot of encounters with wonderful people on this day !
We feel most pleasure to play the music is such a encounter.
We will introduce it a little on this occasion.

First, we introduce the rock band, "Erotica".
They are expert 3-pieces band formed 18 years.
Contrary to laughable lyrics, their sound lined for positive ability and musicality was very cool !
Thier live was mad fun !
The band members were friendly and good guys.
We had been given good time !
Thanks a lot !

Next, we'd like to introduce a singer-songwriter, Shinya Okumura.
You probably know, he is Mr. Okumura who has sung support song of "Consadole Sapporo (soccer team of Japan league)" !
Wow ! It was a pleasure !
Mr. Okumura was a person who is friendly and kindly.
His stage performance was also filled with tenderness, warmth and strength.
Were you probably encouraged by Mr. Okumura?
Thank you so much, Mr. Okumura !

And after all, thing that we really want to introduce is you !
We realize that our live on this day became fun, thanks to you.
Singing, dancing and drinking with you were so happy !
Thank you very much !

Frontier Festa 2010

We played in a festival of the food called "Frontier Festa 2010" held in Wattsu, Kitahiroshima.

A stage is a specially-installed outdoors stage using a carrier of 2t truck.
It's so wild.
Frontier spirits is overflowing.

It was fine from the morning on this day, and we thought as the ideal festival weather, but it was mistake.
This day was intense heat.
What a terrible heat !
There was no cool place.
It was a tanning salon on the stage exposed to the direct sunlight.
nu-Funk members were already dying before live started.

Well, putting that aside, female vocalist, Yun-chan from "Misora" had come again !
During busy days, thank you very much !
She appeared with singing jazz standard number, "Fly Me To The Moon".
And she showed powerful and sexy expressions when singing 2 nu-Funk's original funky tunes.
Great !
Were you enjoyed ?

And this day, three female vocalists unit called "Bang Tones" which thought we'd like to be costarred for a long time, had come.
It's a wonderful chorus group that has dynamic rhythm based on Soul and R&B music, and marvelous harmony in tune with each other.
A performance dignified in spite of heat.
Great !
We had fun time.
Thanks a lot !

One more topic, we played background music in "Flower Performance" which performed by flower writer, Mrs. Naoko Mori.
The honor is more than we deserve !
She was absorbed in arranging flower with our new song, "Voyage".
A wonderful work was completed in a moment.
In the second half, we played awkwardly because development wasn't understood, but we had a great time !
Mrs. Mori, thank you very much !

Finally, we are deeply grateful to many guests who came this event on this day, EDELWEISS FARM of the sponsorship, all of each stores opend on this day, Flower Network which cooperated, Studio 43 which carried equipments, all of each band costarred on this day, Misora's Yun-chan, members of Bang Tones, and Mrs. Naoko Mori.
