Legendary Motown drummer James Gadson and Def Leppard lead guitarist Phil Collen join Yukiko Matsuyama (koto), Diana Dentino (keys), Greg Vail (sax/flute), Vince van Trigt (bass), and Steve Biondo (percussion) for an evening of Japanese flavored World Pop with a dose of R&B and a touch of Funk. Phil Collen of Def LeppardPhil Collen will make a special appearance with the band for this show only.

Yukiko's original compositions fuse the rhythms of Los Angeles with the flavors of her native Japan. From performing with Shakira at the Latin Grammy Awards, recording with Paul Winter on his Grammy Award Winning album, 'Miho: Journey to the Mountain' (Best New Age Album), to recording with Weather Report alumus Alphonso Johnson, Matsuyama introduces the sound of the ancient koto to diverse audiences worldwide.

James Gadson is one of the most recorded R&B drummers of all time. His beats can be heard on the Temptations album 1990, released on the Motown label in 1973. In 1975 he played with Martha Reeves, Randy Crawford, Quincy Jones, Herbie Hancock, BB King, Albert King, Rose Royce and the Motown classic double platinum album; "City Of Angels". Gadson appeared on several tracks on the 2005 Paul McCartney album "Chaos & Creation in the Back Yard".
