Well it seems my assessment of how “friendships” and business on Okinawa work (West Wind, East Wind) was pretty much on the nose. The organizers of the Gate 2 Fest are people Taki has been associated with for many years. Each month they get together to discuss plans for promoting and advancing the street for all the businesses’ benefit. Yet when they planned not to include JET as part of the entertainment this year, not one of these so-called friends had the guts to be straight forward with Taki about it. After waiting until three days before the festival to hear from them concerning confirmation of the schedule, Taki finally called them and found that the band was not on the schedule! Even though JET will not be performing this year, as it has in the previous Gate 2 Fests, we still wish the organizers the best of luck in having a successful event where they can rake in the profits.
