|Four bands (Kentucky Ho-Bo, Casino, Out Of Bounds and Mako Unit) exist
now in Nagano-shi. Each is active originally,
but holds a joint concert (Nagano Bluegrass Special) every year in October. A bluegrass band began activity in Nagano-shi and reached the 43th anniversary in this year. We perform the commemorative concert on October 26 (sat. night). We would like the support of all of you.
