UZUHI at Katsucon at National Harbor, Maryland's gorgeous Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center on February 13-15, 2015.
Far East from their Mother Land, in New York City, The Japanese Energetic Punk Rock band, UZUHI, was born in Fall 2004. UZUHI means “the Sun” in Japanese. The origin of the name came directly from their strong creed of music, “Music Has No Borders.” As the Sun shines the world borderlessly, UZUHI plays Music for the world, for This Generation. When they just got formed, they were usually categorized as a Heavy Rock or Hard Core band. However, due to the secessions of the bassist and drummer, the singer, GOSHA, and guitarist got obliged to play as a something else. After several months of silence, the decision they made was to challenge as an Acoustic Punk Rock 2-piece band. Their challenge kept going for a year and finally, they could encounter with new members of the great Pianist and Artist, TSUBASA, and a drummer and were reborn as 4-piece of a new style of UZUHI in 2007. Their base is in NYC and so they have played at many great and well-known venues such as CBGB, KNITTING FACTORY, WEBSTER HALL, SANTOS PARTY HOUSE, etc. They also tour very often especially in East Coast Area such as in NJ, PA, NY Upstate towns, MA, MD, DC, VA, and NC. Not only as a Punk Rock band, they have also played so many cultural events and conventions such as SAKURA MATSURI in DC, OTAKON, ANIMENEXT, KOLLISIONCON, POKECON, KAMEN in Costa Rica, etc. Because of UZUHI’s unlimited motivations to play so many various kinds of shows, they have met great numbers of supporters and fans in different cities and their Simple but Positive and Challengeable music actions and messages just keep people supportive with UZUHI steadily. The boisterous but delicate drum beats, The elegant but brave keyboard sounds, The rageful and crazy guitar shouts, and The earnest and passionate vocal performances. Just Notes can’t form the power of UZUHI’s Music. Their show crosses over races, sexes, ages, and any borders, and it fascinates, bewitches, and leads anyone to the earnest impression. What is the real happiness in the world? The answer should be found easily at their show. UZUHI screams from their spirit, “Music is not what we look at. Music is not what we listen to. But Music is what we feel!!!”
"UNITED WE SMILE" ~UZUHI'S FINAL US TOUR~
After the 10 years of our Actions and Performances in the United States, we have finally decided to go back to Japan.
Although it is a very very very hard and sad decision, we are also excited for our new life in the mother land.
So many Friends we have made.
So many Smiles we have had.
All are still shinning and burring in our heart and it will continuously keep our lives positive and energetic.
This is not our Good Bye but we will conclude our 10 years of history and memory with our LAST US TOUR in this Winter.
Please come on out to Rock and Smile with us once again and make our friendship deeper and stronger.
