After two decades, the wheels are very much still turning for Japan's premiere Funk orchestra, which has grown from a university combo to one of the world’s leading group in the genre. Nine musicians on stage in sharp uniforms inspired by 60s fashion; trumpets are spinning in the air; leader Nakata dancing “Mashed Potato”; from jumpin’ Bebop instrumentals to James Brown funky dancers. Osaka Monaurail just celebrated their 20th anniversary by touring many cities in Japan
