Tacoma First Day

While Kelvin is busy with Ruined, On continues to tour to the Rialto Theater in Tacoma.  That’s what we like about On Ensemble.  While we love On, we support each other and are encouraged to branch out and do our own things.  That being said, we picked up Chris Hartz on drum set, and Kaoru Watanabe to play with us for this tour.

After a two day drive where we have been leaking transmission fluid from the van (which is scary because it takes a while for the clutch to engage into gear) and lost our cover to our catalytic converter, we made it safely to Tacoma.  We of course got to stop in and visit our parents for a short night and we visited our old On Ensemble buddy, Michelle Fujii, now artistic director of Portland Taiko, for lunch in Portland.  Nice to know people on the road!

Today we had a lecture/demonstration and then a workshop for elementary kids.  Here’s Kris teaching them oroshi and renshu taiko.

There are still tickets left for our concert tomorrow at 7:30pm!  Come check it out!  It’s always fun to play with Kaoru and Chris adds another tasty flavor to our mix.
