I shot some footage of a Japanese band called Jonetsu Marie and Shabondama High School at the 2010 Sakura Matsuri street festival (which was held as part of the National Cherry Blossom Festival) in Washington, DC. According to the information that I read in the official program book, the band is a 1970’s style retro music group from Kyoto that adds a lot of Kansai comedy to its performances.

I know that the sound quality isn’t the greatest in the world (despite my editing efforts in iMovie) but this clip should provide a glimpse of the band’s enthusiastic concert performance.
