    I love Taiko and sure would like to see this performance.

    I have an insatiable desire to see this exhilarating musical experience of rhythm, melody, and movement woven together. What a great way to inspire and educate us all about Asian-American heritage and culture. Would love to get tickets to the Saturday evening performance!!

    I’ve never seen any Taiko, and I hear the Portland Taiko drummers are super good

  4. Tim L. March 21, 2013 at 1:33 pm #

    Love the drums.

  5. Erin March 21, 2013 at 3:57 pm #

    My stepson has taken three years of high school Japanese, and is insatiable for Japanese culture. I’d love to experience this with him, maybe it will whet his appetite to actually take the chance and find a way to spend some time there! However, being a po’ VISTA makes buying tickets to events like this out of my reach.

  6. MacKenzie March 21, 2013 at 4:02 pm #

    I would love to go to this

  7. MotherDoll March 21, 2013 at 4:08 pm #

    I would love to share this cultural experience with my daughter who loves music and dance…What a great mother daughter bonding moment!!!

  8. Liz March 21, 2013 at 4:10 pm #

    I saw a Taiko performance in Portland years ago and was blown away. I would love the chance to see such an innovative performance!

  9. SusanH March 21, 2013 at 4:14 pm #

    My kids have been exposed to Taiko in school, and I’d LOVE to take them to see this performance!

  10. Brittany March 21, 2013 at 4:17 pm #

    I have a friend coming to visit next week, and I’d love to take her to see this!

  11. CT March 21, 2013 at 4:27 pm #

    I’d like to win tickets so I can take my Hapa (Japanese/American) girlfriend to see, hear, and learn about the performing arts related to her heritage. Being of Asian Pacific Islander descent, living in the states we miss out on a lot of traditions and important parts of where we come from, which makes us who we are. Not only that, but I heard Portland Taiko performances are AWESOME!!! :D

  12. Larry Ervin March 21, 2013 at 4:47 pm #

    I love the way Portland Taiko rattles my bones!

  13. erica March 21, 2013 at 6:35 pm #

    Me like taiko, want win tickets.

  14. Hilary A March 21, 2013 at 6:40 pm #

    Wok this way. Insatiable need to feed my soul. Take 5, Taiko. Nothing beats winning these tix. Bang Bang BOOM.

  15. Quinn March 21, 2013 at 7:37 pm #

    Because I’m learning Japanese ( I really think so) .

  16. Arlo March 21, 2013 at 8:37 pm #

    Have desired to attend for quite a while now, as I heard them years ago at an event. Broadening our horizons as we sail through life is always a great thing. Best of luck to all!

  17. Colleen March 21, 2013 at 9:29 pm #

    Saw them once at the Portland Art Museum and would love to take one of my sons.

  18. Bill Stewart March 21, 2013 at 9:45 pm #

    Loud is Good ;-)

  19. Rene' March 21, 2013 at 9:47 pm #

    I have several Japanese Friends and One of them would get a CHARGE to get out and attend this performance. (Aki) does not speak English, therefore, his chances of possibly meeting folks who speak Japanese will defiantly increase and we would also have the opportunity to see
    this X-tremely Interesting Drum Perforce.
    Drums have a POWERFUL effect on People…they are Festive and also Ominous when used in War Tactics in the HISTORY of Humanity…Drums Shake the Spirit and Move the Soul into action!!
    I can’t wait to GO…I feel it in My Bones …it just seems RIGHT!

  20. Scott March 21, 2013 at 10:15 pm #

    I wouls really like to see this.

  21. Anne P March 22, 2013 at 2:15 am #

    I would love to go, they are amazing!

  22. Jillo March 22, 2013 at 2:58 am #

    I am in a very stagnant place. I have an Insatiable need to be moved, inspired and lifted up out of this state of being. I would love to let the Taiko in and feel it speak to me. Seriously, I need to commune with something such as this but I just can’t afford the ticket.

  23. Cassia March 22, 2013 at 5:54 am #

    Would be such a fun event!

  24. Darcey P March 22, 2013 at 9:12 am #

    I’d love to attend the Taiko performance because drumming, and music in general, is the best medicine for me. It takes me away from the chronic pain I experience, daily, with it’s rhythm and melodies. I enjoy the experiences on more than just a sensory level. I am disabled so I don’t have enough money to buy these kinds of tickets for myself, or I would! I’d greatly appreciate being able to show my support for our arts community, if you give me the opportunity. Thank you.

  25. Fabian Dorgan March 22, 2013 at 9:15 am #

    I’d be overjoyed to be able to attend this performance because I live for music! Live music, especially, give me a feeling of peace like nothing else. I have attended Taiko before, but am too poor to buy the tickets this time. Please extend me the opportunity to experience the superb talent showcased in this performance! Thank you for your consideration.

  26. Eric March 22, 2013 at 9:34 am #

    How does the relentless passing of time shape your decisions? Do these cycles consume or empower us?

    These are questions in my thoughts of late… perhaps this performance may provide some insight

  27. Hugo March 22, 2013 at 12:15 pm #

    I would truly appreciate the chance to see this show.
    Thank you.

  28. Ditty Nicolaides March 22, 2013 at 12:37 pm #

    Drums, no doubt, humans’ first musical instrument, vibrate with life. I’d very much like to see this program, but as a retiree, I can’t afford tickets. Help!

  29. Laura G March 22, 2013 at 1:57 pm #

    I’d so love to take my son to this. He’s a huge fan of drums & has played before plus we love Japanese culture. Please pick me! Any show is fine by me.

  30. Lauren March 22, 2013 at 2:44 pm #

    I first saw Taiko drumming at my graduation party in 2006 and ever since then I’ve wanted to go to another performance but never had the chance to. The whole ensemble is amazingly structured and meticulous yet such powerful sound is made from these drummers. Your heart almost feels like it’s beating to the pounding of their drums and your imagination runs wild, dancing along side with their performance. So awesome! Hope I get to go this time!

  31. Rose March 22, 2013 at 4:05 pm #

    I REALLY WANT TO GO! This sounds amazing. I love Taiko!

  32. Ashley March 23, 2013 at 7:16 am #

    My son is half Japanese but never seen Taiko performance. Growing up in Japan, I remember how energetic the performance ca be. I would love to take my son to let him experience a part of his origin. Yes, I would like to go see the Taiko performance with him if I could.

  33. Stacey March 23, 2013 at 7:21 am #

    I’d love to go because I just worked 3 weeks in a row with overtime and I want to go out and do something fun!

  34. Emma B March 23, 2013 at 11:10 am #

    I have loved Taiko for years but haven’t had a chance to see it live. However, I have to pay double shares of rent and utilities and can barely afford food. That is where free tickets come in!

  35. Kyle S March 23, 2013 at 11:31 am #

    As a percussionist and fan of Japanese music I would love the opportunity to see this performance.

  36. Kaitlin Fitzgerald March 23, 2013 at 11:59 am #

    I love Taiko drumming! It would be an absolute thrill to see live taiko. One of my favorite groups is Kodo, they are how I first found out about Taiko.

  37. Nicole smith ryan March 24, 2013 at 9:58 pm #

    This would be fun and I like performances.

  38. Sache March 26, 2013 at 12:27 am #

    Never seen a performance like this before. Can’t wait!

  39. Christie March 27, 2013 at 9:25 am #

    I love Japanese culture!

  40. jason walton March 28, 2013 at 2:46 pm #

    I’d like to take my 8 yo son, because his class at CSS is studying Japan and I don’t take him to enough cultural events. And he is a drum nut.

  41. April Ruthie March 28, 2013 at 4:50 pm #

    drool….. taiko makes me….. to win tickets would be uber beattastic!
