The NAMM Show

This is our forth time to come to NAMM show. We are happy to come back here since we have good performance at Acoustic Cafe.

Acoustic Cafe in Hilton

We are doing sound-check for tonight performance. There are 5 bands play on stage from 7pm to 11pm. We are second band from 7:50pm to 8:30 of 40mim set. Tony Levin is joining us for some part and that is great.

Jon Anderson

During Heart of the Sunrise, Jon came on stage and sang melody part. We are not sure he can make it to play with us, but here he is.

Guitar Concerto

We played Jon's 1st movement of Guitar Concerto with Jon. In the middle section of piece, I felt Jon's enjoyment strongly. I think that this Guitar Concert project will be great.

Thank you!

Very, very nice audiences they are at Acoustic Cafe. I'm sure they enjoyed our performance with two special guest which they never know. Thank you for listening .

Snap shot

After performance, we had nice conversation. He told me that he went to see Beatles in 1963 at Cavern Club and that made his life change. It was great that I talked with whom really saw Beatles at Cavern Club in that time. By the way, in 1976, I saw John Lennon in Karuizawa who was bicycling with Yoko. I happened ride on bicycle, too, with high school mates. I followed John and Yoko (no choice) for a while till they went in a restaurant. I couldn't go inside since if I went, 20 other school mates followed me.

Hotel of the Day

We stay at Marriott next to NAMM convention center. In the night, hotle lobby turn in party place and there was a lot of noise. Seems people are enjoying NAMM event very well.
