Maneki Neko "A Midwinter's Night" February Concert

Day: Sunday, February 19, 2006
Time: 7:30 pm
Place: Nifty


Happy New Year to everyone!


Thanks to all who came out to see our New Year's performance. We were surprised to see the cafe packed with our supporters!


For our February 19th concert, we will be inviting a special guest musician. Look forward to something a little different from us this time.


Directions to Nifty
Take the Karasuma subway line to the last stop, Kokusaikaikan station. The four-lane street in front of the station is Takaragaike-dori. Walk about 870 feet to the west. At the second traffic light, you will see the cafe "DORF" on your left(the south side of Takaragaike-dori). Behind DORF, you will see a large New England-style house--this is Nifty. As Nifty is a cafe (with excellent food!), and as they have been so supportive, we ask that people who come to see us order a drink or so.

Announcement of the Maneki Neko Website!

Hi everyone,

We are happy to announce the opening of the Maneki Neko homepage!

How is everyone faring in the midst of all this snow we have been getting?

After three months of planning and ninety days of construction, we have finally finished preparations for our website. We invite everyone to take a look, and please feel free to leave a message for us in our guestbook. Your comments provide valuable fuel for our activities.

This is the easy-to-remember address:
http://manekineko.in

And the guestbook:
http://manekineko.in/modules/mybbs/index.php

Starting with our first performance at Nifty on October 20th of this year, we were able to get a taste of the difficulties and joys of performing. We would like to thank Junko-san and the staff at Nifty. We look forward to more performances in the coming year! Also, we would like to thank Kawanaka-san and Takada-san for generously inviting us to perform at their Christmas party at the Kyoto Royal Hotel.

We're busy polishing our performance skills and hope that our music will be even better in the coming year. If you have any suggestions on how we can accomplish this, by all means leave us a message!

You can leave advice for us in the guestbook:

Thanks to all of you for your support this year. Look forward to more from us in 2006!

Happy New Year!

Maneki Neko--The "pretty good" guitar duo
Adam and Yujiro(2006/01/24)


MANEKI NEKO

---the "pretty good" guitar duo---
Live Cafe Performance Schedule



October 20 (Thurs) and November 6 (Sun), 2005
Time: 8pm
Place: Foodies Cafe Nifty



Adam Catt and I, Yujiro Komatsu, have formed a guitar duo! For our name, we have decided on "Maneki Neko" (Beckoning Cat), as this is a play on Adam's last name, and also because it expresses our desperate struggle to "beckon" people to come hear us!



At this point, we are still only a "pretty good" guitar duo, but we hope that at some point we can become a "good" guitar duo.



With the help of our friends at the cafe "Nifty," we have made our first leap into live performance. We will notify you of our future performance schedule as soon as it is decided on.



Comments and criticism highly welcome!
