He played quit a few songs (mostly from his older CD's) - but he also played a couple from the new CD like "In My Life", "Here, There and Everywhere" and "Ice Cream". To see him do "My Guitar Gently Weeps" on YouTube is awesome enough... but in person... OH MY GAWD! It was worth it just for that one song I tell yah! LOL

But the most amazing thing was he did an IMPROV with Futureman (Futureman and the Black Mozart Orchestra came out after). The improvisation that they did... was just indescribable. Needless to say - I was blown away.

If you have to travel to see his show... DO IT! You won't be disappointed! :D


thats sweeeeeeeet

is that a Yomuri Giant's hat?

Yup - that's my main team! Yomiuri Giants all the way!! My cousin sends me Yomiuri Giants stuff from Hokkaido every once in a while... even though he's a Hiroshima Carp fan. LOL


Hey Poi Dog,
Nice looking family. You should adopt Jake! hahahaha.

Thanks. I don't think he'd go for it. LOL

Thanks Seeso!

I tell yah - I got to see you performing with your group w/Bosko and Honey along with the rest of the incredible performances on Open Mic on Saturday Night - then the following night I got to see Jake in concert and meet him afterwards.

What an awesome weekend! :D

Seeso, if you see him after the show and think about it just tell him I said hello. We connected via email about 3 weeks ago as I was letting him know about an opportunity to do a house concert while in Florida on one of his off days. Enjoy the show.

Thanks everybody! If any of you get a chance to see his concert... I highly recommend that you go!


nice poi dog!

I also have a couple Hanshin Tigers hats - but I can't bring myself to wear them... seeing how they're our rivals. Kinda like a Red Sox fan wearing a Yankees hat or something. LOL
