Fantasy will have play dates at Torii Station, Kadena Air Base, Camp Schields and the Globe & Anchor at Camp Foster starting on Valentine’s Day. The six-member Motown group began its Pacific tour last month, with stops set for Japan, Okinawa, Guam and Hawaii.
“We all know someone who has served in the military and deeply appreciate how devoted these individuals are to serving our country, no matter the cost,” says Steve Ervin, the band’s manager, singer, base guitar and keyboard player. “We hope that through our performances we bring joy to the troops and keeps their spirits high.” The other members of the team are Eugene Erin with lead vocals and percussion, Myke Furham on lead guitar and background vocals, Jerome Joseph, drums and background vocals, Terence Barber on keyboards, Pete Ross on rhythm guitar.
Fantasy plays a mixture of rhythm and blues with Motown roots. The group has played together for seven years, and is touring under the Armed Forces Entertainment Office.
The group plays Kadena Air Base at 8pm on Feb. 14th, Torii Station at 4pm on Thursday, Feb. 15th, Camp Shields at 9pm Friday, and the Globe & Anchor on Saturday, Feb. 17th at 9pm.
