Groo Me!! in concert


Groo Me!! is a brass ensemble formed by Yuina Mita (107th Class drummer who became J-pop idol singer and drummer after graduating). Members of Groo Me!! are mostly Tachibana alumni, some of them adored fan favorites. Inaugural concert was held May 2018 (see below) although the roots of the band extend a bit further in history.

  1. Mita-chan had just uploaded a nice long livestream on her YT channel.

    Can’t understand much, but picking up a few sentences here and there where she’s noting she’s studying English. She’s certainly coming to her own, and what a journey to follow.

    • Yeah, I think that may have been one of her 17Live “deliveries”, as they call it. Apparently, she can read english fairly well. Writing it, she gets some things wrong, but that’s to be expected from someone learning a difficult new language.

      Listening to her songs, I’ve picked up some new Japanese words, but I doubt I’ll be fluent in the language anytime soon. 😀 😀

  2. Looking at the 2017 video at Shibuya Guilty where Yuina and friends performed “Sing, Sing, Sing,” I wonder if she invited the alumni back to celebrate, since it was her 25th birthday that very day. Perhaps the performance was her birthday gift TO the audience.

    Also, that is the aforementioned Yuki Enomoto on alto saxophone, another of the KT alumni that are now professional musicians. Sledge posted one of her live performances below.

  3. Another KT alumni that went professional, Yuki Enomoto,

    She was a saxophonist from around the same era as Mita-chan, by the looks of it. Her IG (enomotoyuki) has this pic of a commemorative photo from KT’s 2012 RP https://www.instagram.com/p/BOW4pyIh-qe/

    Her album, “Moonlight” was announced in January this year.

    Here’s her performing live back in 2018
