It has been a busy time for us since the tragedy that has impacted Japan. First with previous scheduled events during the time of the Earthquake and Tsunami, and now with impromptu but welcomed scheduled meetings and conference calls with organizations and artists about fund-raising efforts to help Japan overcome this unbelievable event. Today we are taking time to share some brief thoughts on the event and give a public thank you to everyone who has reached out to us to check on our entertainers, friends, and family in Japan.
While we are relieved to say that the Entertainers we know and work with (many that we do consider family) and direct family and friends of our Japanese staff are safe, we do have friends that are still looking for their loved ones and have been impacted greatly by this devastating event. We at Toramaru Entertainment and Pop Show Japan send all our prayers their way and to all of Japan and any family and friends of those living there and those that have been impacted.
We are also impressed at the amount of generosity, prayers and inquiries coming from all over the world. Many have inquired about our participation and we are proud to say that we will be involved in some upcoming fund-raising efforts with some very positive organizations that we plan to soon announce. In the mean time please give to your local Red Cross or contact local Government agencies to help the Japanese relief effort.
Again Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone impacted by this event and we thank everyone for throwing your own thoughts, prayers, and support towards the people of Japan.

It has been a couple weeks since the big night of, recognition, respect and celebration of the Late, Great Nujabes’ contribution to our eardrums. Peaceland: A World Without Words was as much spiritual as it was exciting! We’d like to thank everyone for coming out to this special event and helping us to make the first official U.S. Nujabes Tribute event a TOTAL SUCCESS!!! Just under 300 funky souls came out and celebrated the life, Beats, breaks, and harmony of Nujabes- meaning that Nujabes will forever be memorialized at Bobby Mckey’s – Every Special event bringing in 200 or more get’s honored with a special Bobby McKey’s License Plate Plaque. Once the numbers we in we immediately asked for Nujabes’ name to be put on the Plate.
With that said, we’d like to thank everyone who was involved in front and behind the scenes including- Substantial and Hydeout Records for trusting us with this delicate project, The General Store Inc. for an incredible media campaign and other support, and the Peaceland performers: Bop Alloy (Substantial & Marcus D) Emancipator, Pase Rock- and Apani B, Truth from God’s Illa, Steph Love, DJ Asu Rock, and Artist Aoi Yamaguchi. We’d also like to thank Kokayi, DJ Jav for trusting us with what some DJ’s consider their FIRST BORN, Eddie from Tombs 4 Art photography, Christian & Matt Oh, B The Second Letter, Ike, Javier, Mr. Translator Man, and a big huge thanks to Bobby Mckey’s for having us, our Sponsors, Funimation, Tokidoki, Ketchup, The Find magazine, and Light It Up- The Grand Illumination. Most of all we’d like to thank each and every one of you for coming out and Sharing the night with us!!
