Whisky Live! is about much more than whisky. As well as being able to sample other products such as cigars, chocolates and craft beers, we also have a program of entertainment planned for the Main Stage.
Back for the 3rd time as DJ and compere is Tokyo's top "Scotch-Jock" DJ, Guy Perryman.
Guy has recently started a daily breakfast show, downloadable from his website at:
Guy will be selecting the music to go along with those drams, and generally making sure everything runs to time.
Whisky Magazine Japan's Editor Dave Broom will be chairing 2 talkshows in stage, discussing with senior members of the Japanese whisky industry Michael Jackson's contribution to the whisky industry, and also the globalisation of Japanese whisky.
Live music is provided by the fabulous Lenne Hardt Jazz Cabaret Band, who will be performing several sets on stage throughout the afternoon. Details about Lenne, including her career as the voice of martial arts "Pride" events, can be seen at:
A first for Live! is the performance of a Noh play about Japanese whisky by the Kami-Asobi troupe:
We close off the day with a Charity Draw. Live! commemorative bottles and other prizes will be raffled off in a draw that is free to enter- although we ask that you contribute generously to the "Parkinson's Association" charity- an organization that supports sufferers of the disease that sadly affected Michael Jackson during the closing years of his life.
