Academy Awards!

Hello all.  Bryan, Byron, Courtney, and I from TAIKOPROJECT have been chosen to perform in the 81st Annual Academy Awards this Sunday, February 22 at 5pm Pacific/8pm Eastern.  Watch for us along with eight other “international drummers” and about 50 or so dancers when they present the award for “Best Song”.  We’re playing a 4-5 minute medley of all three songs.  Exciting!!!  I better charge my camera…

We’ve been rehearsing at local studios in Hollywood, but today we’re headed to the Kodak Theater.  Now we get to be in our element.

Who are you rooting for?  I REALLY liked “Slumdog Millionaire”, but I haven’t seen “Milk” yet which my mom and dad said was pretty good.  Oh yeah, and WALL-E was pretty fantastic too.

    Hi Maz

    How exciting. I was watching the Oscars this evening (while doing homework), Gord called my attention to the fact that he saw taiko players on stage. I went over to get a closer look. Yup, those are taiko players and those are Japanese drums…in a Bollywood piece? It was hard to get a good enough look at you and the players, but I said to Gord, I’m pretty sure that’s Maz second from the right.

    Moments after the performance I got an email from Canada..”Hey, Annette, were those taiko?”

    You must have had a blast. You rocked!
