We had so much fun with our little LIVE event at Gallery KINOMI in Chigasaki!

Thank you artist, Ritz Yamashina for inviting us to his art exhibition to play!
In late September in 2021, we are still in the middle of a pandemic….the cases of corona (in Tokyo, Kanagawa) are finally STARTING to go down (with more and more people getting vaccinated… I’m assuming!) but the number is still high enough that we decided not to “advertise” or invite our friends. We decided to play IF there were people hanging out at the end of the day.

After the clock struck 5 (when the cafe was scheduled to close) we quickly set up our chairs for a quick performance!
Here is a video of our newest arrangements of the Hawaiian favorite, “Wahine ‘Ilikea” and the jazz classic “All of Me”.
