Mush"Boogie Boots" Hosotani

Boogie Boots," Mush Hosotani, was born in Tokyo and picked up a guitar at the age of thirteen. He taught himself to play by listening to blues, Motown, R&B, funk, and rock' and roll. His original style, which Mush dubbed "Boogie Boots," is achieved by attaching a spoon to his boot as percussion to accompany his guitar. Mush Hosotani's exciting, dynamic and energetic blues create a unique sound that expresses his soul and inner feeling through the use of a guitar rather than words.
