By far, one of the hottest funk bands on the planet.” Marva Whitney, Soul Sister #1

With their sharp suits, synchronised routines, and powerful horn section, Osaka Monaurail have been exuberantly filling dancefloors across the globe. Led by the charismatic showmanship of singer Ryo Nakata, Osaka Monaurail’s dynamic show will have your feet movin’ and your hips shakin’ from the moment they hit the stage.

“Each well-timed move thrilled the excited crowd… the dance floor was a mass of funk converts unable to stop themselves dancing feverishly to the explosive rhythmic energy that Osaka Monaurail generated.” Upside
As well as some storming originals, funk fans can anticipate workouts on tunes by Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, The Temptations, Isaac Hayes, Rufus Thomas and of course, the godfather of soul, James Brown.

“Nakata does not disappoint with his contagious energy, smiles or cheeky grins… A bitchin’ night of Japanese funk!” Matrix Barcelona
