Japan Day 2012 Part Two -- ThePerformance

Girls getting ready.  My Old Hen helped the gals put on kimonos and tie the obies.  Wearing them correctly is not easy.  Ah luv these gals but Old hen kicked me out of the dressing room.  Damnit!  My Old Hen is so sweet until she is bad and kicks me out...

Performance, getting set up

Kenny Keno-son preparing

Miles Endo-san joins in.

These guys beat the heck out of them drums.

Mitsudome.  try and look that one up.

They did traditional classical drumming, Lion Dance, Several traditional and new compositions.  When the Pantampers Steel Orchestra palyed and then the Endo-sans played with the orchestra it was just amazing.

Syncronized drumming

Had a great seat up in the box with the Ambassador.  Also my bally Mr. Solis was there and took good care of me and the Old Hen.  The NICH Director was there.  I have to give a big-up shout out to Ms. Asako Solis who did a great job corordinating this event along withThe Embassy of Japan and The Japan Foundation.  Many people helped and I don't know all of them, but it was a very awesome event...
