Hatch Hatchell Band, Tokyo


The Hatch Hatchell Band are one of Japan’s leading live bands, and they travel the country with their mix of old jazz, gypsy swing, and popular songs.

They pay homage to the muse of quirkiness in bringing you untold variations of anthems to daily life. Enjoy the nonsense they bring to their stage shows through the delight they display in their eccentric performances. This is an outstanding sextet, always unexpected and surprising, led by the self-styled genius Hatch Hatchell. They go by the Japanese tag line of “Detarameinchiki okamai nashi!” We had trouble translating this into English… The Google translate rendition is suitably obscure: “No bullshit bogus hospitality!”
