Bored on a hump day? Why not try a free J-Pop show on for size!
Happyfunsmile performs an interesting blend of okinawan pop, electric folk songs (ultraminyo), supersweet ballads (enka), festival rhythms and obon beats. They use almost ever instrument possible like the use of the chindon, sanshin, accordion, saxophone, bass, percussion, and keys. They are a very lively and colorful band with a variety of music and best of all they are performing free tonight!
“Prepare for a show that sets the standard by which the stamina of all other Japanese bands in NYC are judged!!! 2 sets of 45 minutes each, rollicking and reelling, happy fun & smiling in a great venue with great people enjoying a great band. Wynn Yamami has said that one needs to seeing happyfunsmile at The Forbidden City in order to see what they truly can do, and he’s right as usual! Really positive energy here & you will be a better person for having come join the fun. See you there!!!”
