Shakatak @ Billboard Live Tokyo

24 07 2012

Went to see the English pop-jazz band Shakatak last night @ Billboard Live Tokyo.  They were extremely popular in Japan in the ’80s and their popularity, although on a smaller scale, continues to this day and they keep coming back every year to perform live while releasing new albums and newly compiled greatest hits.  They played to a nearly packed house last night.

To listen to their biggest hit “Nightbirds”, go to, then to “Video Vault”, and click on the blurry stage image out of the five thumbnails listed.  It was filmed in Japan in 2005 with very good sound and visual quality and you cannot see this on youtube.
