Keiichi Suzuki celebrates 45 years

Posted on 12.20.15 under Dustin Wong, Dustin Wong, Keiichi Suzuki

Keiichi Suzuki has been performing professionally since 1970. He played at the Melpark Tokyo with 30 musicians he’s played with over his career — and Dustin Wong — for his new songs. It was a great honor and Dustin played great!

The show will be televised on BS Fuji sometime in 2016. For some reason, BS Asahi sent flowers.


Dustin visited us (Junko, Takako, and me) during intermission.

Didn’t take a photo of Dustin playing — we had guest passes and I didn’t want to be a bad guest. However, Keiichi did say at this moment, it was okay to take photos.

Glass poi pounders made with McKinley High’s black and gold colors. This is Sam ‘Ohu Gon‘s Christmas present. He created the oli (Hawaiian chant) that Haruno performed at the Hula O Na Keiki last month and generously gave his time to coach her via Skype.

These were intended for the groom and groomsmen, but will also try for a beer rather than wine glass shape.
