Things are finally winding down. KIOKU just had its debut performance at the TANK and things generally went well. Ryan is busy editing the HFS recording and we just have to add accordion and sanshin to the mix. We have two new female singers for HFS: Akiko Hiroshima and Kaori Ibuki. Now I just have to find the right bassist and maybe add a guitarist.
But for now, I’m practicing my taiko and taking a breather.
Oh, and last night I went to see Phantom of the Opera. One of the guests at the New York Buddhist Church was sick and couldn’t use the ticket. I really didn’t want to see the show, but I knew I would never buy a ticket or willingly try to see it. Anyway, I really don’t see how this musical stayed on Broadway for so long. What a terrible show.
