Hi, I would like to share a video from my gig at the Last Word in Astoria on February 28th, 2018. I would like to thank Adam Hutcheson, Peter Brendler and Alex Wyatt for their great playing and support and also thank my friend Shu Odamura for taking this video with my iPhone.
My head is cut on this video so sorry for some people who love to watch my face but this one must be good for who loves my music but can’t stand watching my face (maybe Shu Odamura feel this way:)).
This is the whole 3rd set in the evening. Hope you enjoy!
Set list was:
1. On my way back home
3.Too young to go steady
