"Kosuke Okamura is a fine musician who exhibits a joy in playing music that is contagious and just plain fun."

Wayne Wallace - Five-time Grammy Nominee/Latin Trombonist, Composer, Producer, Professor

"Kosuke's love for music is infectious."

Galen Lemmon - Principle Percussionist of Symphony Silicon Valley, Ballet Silicon Valley, Cabrillo Festival Orchestra/SJSU Percussion Professor

"Excellent at networking and one of the most versatile musicians on the scene today"

Lisa Pegher - Solo Percussion Artist

"Kosuke is a talented and versatile drummer/percussionist and his positive energy is as infectious as his groove!"

Jeff Lewis - Two-time Grammy Winner/Trumpet Player, Clinician, Educator

"There are a lot of great young drummers in this area, and Kosuke Okamura can hang, but what he brings to the game is a secret wildcard of sorts, with emphasis on wild. Okamura has a gift that only the very best performers do, and once you've seen him play you'll realize (along with the rest of the audience) what it is: a fiery, honest, and thorough enjoyment of what he's doing. It's a simple idea, but one that's amazingly hard to pull off, and it's the reason why, whether he's playing in a jazz trio, funk band, or 80's cover band (or any of the other dozens of styles he's capable of) Okamura lights up the stage and his audiences in turn."
