Finding Wataru and his band Gecko&Tokage Parade has significantly impacted my joy of music...and that is saying something. The relentless energy reminds me of a jazz band from the early 70s called Sea Level...the pianist was from the Allman Brothers - Chuck Leavelle. As good as Gecko is, when he brings in his brilliant band it is stunning. I live in Richmond VA and welcome you guys. Great food. Tom Gober
