"Swing in the JICOO" with Nakatsuka Takeshi

中塚武中塚武Last Saturday, May 7, was another swinging cruise hosted by Nakatsuka Takeshi aboard JICOO, the water bus-turned-floating bar designed by manga artist Matsumoto Leiji. The event was a sort of reprise of the release party held last September, as everyone had loved the atmosphere.

This time, the boat departed an hour earlier at 19:00 (or a bit past 19:00 because of the number of passengers still boarding), and spent the first hour going around Tokyo Bay... I actually failed to pay much attention to the cruise itself, as I chatted with friends while enjoying the DJs who took turns playing mainly house tracks on the futuristic boat. It was unfortunate that Rainbow Bridge was in energy saving mode and wasn't all lit up as it used to be.

The event's timetable went like this:
18:30~ JIRO
19:15~ mariiiila
19:45~ Cozy
20:15~ Kazyanight
20:45~ Inagee
21:30~ Nakatsuka Takeshi (live)
22:00~ masaru (Marche)
22:30~ mune.

Of course Takeshi's live set was the best part, everyone got on the dancefloor to dance and sing and have fun!

My friend managed to make this really nice video that shares the feeling of being there.

I'll look forward to the next JICOO ride!
