Great performance and nice guys. Professional and timely.
We had an Asian-Hispanic Food Show and asked saku Kageyama Taiko Ensemble to perform. Isaku reccomended us two drummers, specializing in asian/hispanic fusion style taiko drumming and they were excellent! They played three 15 minute sets at our show and our customers were very impressed and charmed with the performances. Drummers arrived early to set up and played in a timely manner. Great professional people to work with. Definitely recommend!
