Holy Child Church in Staten Island, NY




We had a concert at the Holy Child Church in Staten Island, NY. It was the second time to perform at the church and, same as the first time, we had so much kind applause from the audience. Thanks to everyone who came to the concert. We also had the tea tasting party. The tea was provided by Ito-en. I put all the photos on another site. If you want to see EVERYTHING, please follow the link below.

By the way, the string instrument I am holding on the top photo is the traditional Okinawan instrument called Sanshin. This instrument has very particular sound which includes lots of "buzzing sound," or as the guitarists call "fret noise" which all guitarists including myself are trying to eliminate as much as possible. I am going to use it on every WaFoo's concert from this day forward.

Takeshi's Birthday


It was the birthday of our keyboardist Takeshi. All the band members went to a steakhouse and celebrate after the rehearsal.



It looks like just another fun rehearsal with WaFoo but Takeshi the keyboardist and Kazuo the bassist are playing the guitars and I, Ippei the percussionist is playing the bass. We did not intend but everyone in WaFoo is happened to be a multi-instrumentalist, so we thought it would be cool to switch instruments and play a tune or two.
