History in the shaking...

Gaijin à Go-Go brings an infectious Japanese pop sound to the rhythms of 1960s style go­go music. The band quickly signed to Sony Music International and released two albums, Happy­55­Lucky and Merry­55­Round, and their latest album, Go­Go Boot Camp, premiered at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Cherry Blossom Festival in 2006. Gaijin à Go-Go has played venues throughout New York City including the Knitting Factory, CBGB, Sin­e, SOBs, Central Park, Prospect Park, at the top of the World Trade Center, RUBULAD, and New Lost City.   


But they were bona fide BIG in Japan. Don't let their off-beat, humble charm fool you; Gaijin à Go-Go have earned serious accolades — Mark Ribot, and Charley Drayton, have performed on their albums, produced by Joe Blaney. Carlos Alomar has honed musical arrangements on numerous songs for Go Go Bootcamp. They've collaborated with world-renowned artists: Ursula1000, Konishi (Pizzicato Five), King Britt, and Skeewiff. They've toured with Puffy Ami Yumi, and opened for Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra (SOBs), and also, ? and the Mysterians (CBGBs main stage).
