Yamato Concert

Going to concert 2

Last week we had the awesome opportunity to see the Yamato Japanese drummers in concert!  We ALL went, including Auntie Aliyah who helped us with the boys.  (Thank you, Auntie Aliyah!)

I wasn’t sure what to expect of a drum concert, except that we were told beforehand that it would be really loud!  We therefore left Ben’s hearing aids behind, and got seats near the front row in the balcony.  We actually had an aisle right in front of us, so the view was great, and we had easy access in and out of our seats, definitely a plus since we have three small kids.

The drummers were so energetic, and the concert was amazing!  We had such a great time.  Besides drums, there were other traditional Japanese instruments, and the concert was interactive and very entertaining for adults and kids.  Ben stayed awake the entire time, and really enjoyed all the drumming, music and clapping.  Isaac and Jonny fell asleep on the ride home, but were fine going to school the next day.

We loved the concert so much that we bought their DVD, and I hope we get to see them again someday.

    Glad it was such a good night out for you all.
    We saw the concert here a little while back, they are amazing aren’t they. Japanese drumming is one of those things I am planning to take up when the kids are a bit older.

    Hi Karen, do you celebrate thanksgiving? If you do I hope you and your family had a lovely day…. was hoping to visit your site and see a picture of lovely turkey (not ruined by mark)! 🙂

    Miss Behaving: Japanese drumming looks like an excellent aerobic workout! Not to mention a great stress reliever. Too bad we don’t live in Japan or I’d have to take it up too. 😉
    Lisa: yes, we do celebrate Thanksgiving. We had a quiet day at home. The turkey was good (I made it, not Mark!) but we didn’t even take one photo of it. We have tons of yummy leftovers, though!

    Japanese drumming sound very entertaining! I think it’s great the whole family had a fun night out. I love it when there’s a chance to break the daily routine. Great picture of you and your boys btw…

    Yes karen, a great workout. The arms on the women drummers are awesome, they get great muscle definition without getting all bulky.
