Hoshi*Furu is a Japanese variety style rock band hailing from every part of Toronto. If you haven't a clue of what "variety style" is, it is just the basic term for "we play everything!". Within the last 5 months in time, these boys and girls have drastically whipped up themselves into shape, and to create fun, original, hardcore music the rest of the world just has to get their ears hooked onto. Believe them; you're missing out on a whole lot if not.
Hoshi*Furu band members include Mari on vocals, 'Nan on sound, Roma on bass, Okasan on the keyboard, and Peter on the drums. Although there are a few musical differences from each of the members, this doesn't mean they are incapable of working together to create a whole new vibe. No, because Hoshi*Furu can and is best known for continuing to strive for their dreams. Nothing can ever bring these buddies down!
Enchanter formed in 2004, is a group of lively, dynamic, dedicated, and talented individuals who share a passion for music. With strong musical backgrounds, each member brings their own unique flavor into each song and every performance. Drawing from their favorite genres, Enchanter's music is strongly influenced by Japanese Visual Kei, Cantonese pop and Western rock. The group is constantly striving for improvement and takes pride in their original compositions.
Enchanter has performed at various venues and events for charity, including relief efforts for the Asian Tsunami of 2004 and Red Cross. As well, performances have been held at other venues such as the stage of Toronto City Hall, Metro Square's Asian Night Market, Club Mirage and Canada's Wonderland.
