AMUSE1 500x353 PornoGraffitti, Perfume & flumpool plus 11 other Amuse music groups hold a photoshoot for BBQ event

Amuse will be holding a special summer event called 「BBQ in Tsumagoi ~ Bokura no Beat wo Kurae KORA! ~」 this July 13 and 14 in Tsumagoi, Shizuoka. To promote the event, all participating artists did a special photoshoot together.

「BBQ in Tsumagoi ~ Bokura no Beat wo Kurae KORA! ~」 is an event derived from the annual BBQ Rally that Porno Graffitti holds every year. Porno Graffitti usually holds this event with artists they have deep connections with, but because it is Amuse’s 35th anniversary, it has become a celebration with 13 other Amuse groups. The confirmed number of artistes at this point is 14 groups (totaling 41 people) for the two-day event.

The photoshoot was held on one April day when all of the artists schedules miraculously matched. Before the shoot, the artists were all making friendly talk with each other and those with instruments even held a short jamming session. However, once the godfathers of the event, Porno Graffitti, entered, the atmosphere became a little heavier.

The photoshoot was done with three variations: one with instruments, one without, and one with the artistes holding a board with written messages. The photographer, Makoto Okuguchi, can only say words of amazement and wonder with each shot as he sees all 41 members perfectly matching each other. The staff also gave out instructions like “let’s have a cool photo!” or “let’s take a lively one!”  to which the artistes gladly obliged.

In one amusing scene, when the artistes were asked to be “loud and celebratory”, the boys among the group started to feel shy. In the midst of the awkwardness, Perfume’s A-Chan turned around to face them and shouted, “with a smile now!”. After which, all 41 members broke out of their shyness and the shoot proceeded smoothly.
