It's been a year since the passing of the great drummer, Shuichi "PONTA" Murakami. So, we will take over the Shinjuku Pit Inn, where he had been playing for decades, for a day and will hold the final event of this year's 'Ponta Museum' in the afternoon, which has been held in 13 locations across Japan since last year. In the evening, we will commemorate PONTA with 'Mars Engine' and 'Ponta's Parade’, led by his direct disciples, KenKen (bs), who was a favorite of PONTA's since childhood, and Isao "Sankichi" Miyoshi, a jazz guitarist and ally of Sankichi-ism.
