Dressed in “New-Gang-Style“, "NAMONAKIBAND” is rockin’ the world from TOKYO.
Before NAMONAKIBAND, “the heiz" was formed in 2008. After several months of covering Chuck Berry, Johnny Burnette, Gene Vincent, Johnny Thunders, Shaku Keiji (vocals/guitar), Asako Yoshinaga (bass) and Takashi Kimura (drums) decided to start to write their own material. In 2009 the first heiz album was released, which led to international recognition. The band left Japan to U.S., played 50 of wild and frantic shows in 35 cities. But unfortunately, Asako got trouble with her left hand during this hard tour. When the band’s back to Japan, she needed to have an operation and take a break. Asako began to sing instead of playing bass, Shaku and Kimura started “Kim-Ramones”, Ramones-Tribute-band. Finally “NAMONAKIBAND” wad founded in 2010 when Asako’s back to the band. They got 3 lead vocals in the band. In 2011 the first “NAMONAKIBAND” album was released. They had 3 times of live performances with no supporting acts during 2012 to 2013 including the show at “Shibuya O-West”, capacity of 600.
In 2014 “NAMONAKIBAND” is now representing TOKYO in the “Hard Rock Rising 2014” and in the global online vote which starts on the 28th April to determine the top 25 bands. The winner plays a gig at Hard rock live in Roma festival in July.
