TOKYO TRAMPS - contestant of the International Blues Challenge 2011in Memphis, TN!!!
Hailing from the Land of Rising Sun (Japan), TOKYO TRAMPS is on a mission to deliver joy and excitement of true American music, Blues and Rock'n'Roll. Satoru came to Louisiana searching for the “Roots” of music. Yukiko left a very lucrative job in Tokyo to follow her heart to play American music. Playing since ‘99, they got 5 albums so far. Satoru took its name TRAMPS from his early idol, Bruce Springsteen's song, Born To Run - "Tramps like us, baby, we were born to run." Coming to a foreign land, not having home or families, traveling from place to place, what else can we do to make our dreams come true except playing for a Rock'n'Roll band?
