Fresh off our announcement of voice actor Johnny Yong Bosch comes Eyeshine!
When we shared the news of Johnny Yong Bosch on our Facebook page, we received a positive response. Thank you for your input! We know you’ll love this four-piece act, featuring Johnny as the lead vocalist and rhythm guitar player. Eyeshine is an “edge rock” band that consists of Johnny Yong Bosch, Maurice Salmin (drums, percussion), Masataka “Polo” Yazaki (lead guitar), and Ginny Eck (bass, strings). They have since toured worldwide and self produced over 11 albums. Eyeshine won Ford Motor Company’s worldwide band battle in 2012 and recorded a single with Grammy Award winning producer Don Was.
Learn more about Eyeshine by visiting “Who To See” and stay tuned for our official schedule to find out when they’ll be playing!
