Hello from the band! We hope you are enjoying your summer! It's hard to believe but there's less than four more months to go, as we wind down and complete our "Domo" tour. The "Domo" tour is our way of saying thanks for the 42+ years of support you've had for HIROSHIMA. It's been an incredible run, from the first time you perhaps heard the song "Lion Dance" or "Da-Da" on WHUR or KBLX, or seeing us with Miles Davis in Philadelphia, or under the stars at the Greek Theater, or perhaps in Japan, or Capetown, South Africa.
Plus, there were the great moments we have shared with you at the buffet line on the Capitol Jazz SuperCruise, or the CD tables in Honolulu, Hampton, and Cincinnati (among others). We remember each time we've performed, the chance to meet you, and thank you for coming out. Plus we never forget those who played a huge role in our music making. The list is long, but there's George Duke, James Moody, Wayne Henderson, Phyllis Hyman, Frankie Beverly, Onaje Alan Gumbs, and so many more...
To say the summer of 2022 is an emotional one for us is quite an understatement. Happy to be playing dates post covid. Grateful for all of you who have come out to see us perform. Sad for those who were unable to come out due to health reasons or frustrated with the difficulty of travel.
But on an even more personal note, sentimental as we wind down (we have not accepted any future concert dates beyond this year), proud of what we've accomplished as an American band, but most of all we're honored to be on stage with one another and be able to share our music with you.
We could not wind down without doing an L.A. show. We are working out details, but please hold this date: Saturday, October 29th. It'll take place at the Japan America (Aratani) Theater in Little Tokyo (Los Angeles). We hope to have tickets available for purchase soon.
We hope to see you in the Bay Area at Yoshi's in early August. Labor Day weekend brings us to Texas; September to Hawaii and then New Haven and New Jersey; early October to the Washington, DC area. Our final show on the books is on November 13th in Chandler, AZ. Please visit our tour page for further information including ticket purchase links.
Also of note, we are being inducted into the Asian Hall of Fame, performance and ceremony take place at the Alex Theater in Burbank, CA on November 12th, 2022.
The "Domo" tour is not a final farewell. But we are scaling back significantly.
A special shout out to those of you who saw us in Ohio, Virginia, Michigan, and Florida. Please keep posting those videos and pictures on social media, and thanks for spreading the word!
And finally, we will soon be having a sale of all our cd’s in stock, with special pricing. Details forthcoming, very soon…
