It’s Not a Beerfest…It’s Sactoberfest!

The Sacfoodies team was recently invited to get a sneak peek at the festivities planned for the 2nd Annual Sactoberfest 2014!

Hiroshima performing at Crest Theatre Sept. 26!

Hiroshima performing at Crest Theatre Sept. 26!

Building on the success of the Taiko Project performance last year, the Sacramento Asian Sports Foundation (SASF) is happy that Hiroshima will be the performer for the Second Annual Benefit Show.

The Grammy nominated jazz/fusion ensemble Hiroshima is performing on Friday, September 26 at the Crest Theatre. Hiroshima’s unique blend of pop, jazz, R & B and Latin influences with exotic strains of their Japanese heritage has endured for over 35 years.

Hiroshima is very excited to be coming back to Sacramento. Dan Kuramoto and June Kuramoto, founders of Hiroshima, said the group has not performed in Sacramento for almost 20 years! SASF is extremely fortunate to host their return to Sacramento and hope all of our supporters will join us for a memorable night at the Crest Theatre.
