Team Hideo gathers the best, most enthusiastic video game and/or anime-loving musicians, actors, and artists to produce all-original shows featuring video game and anime music performed live to a dramatic story. Their first production, Hideo - A Theatrical Concert of Music from Japanese Animation and Video Games, premiered at UC Berkeley's Zellerbach Hall in 2010 to media attention and the group has since performed at various venues and events all over California as well as on the East Coast.
Most recently, Team Hideo performed a special hour-long concert of classic video game and anime tunes from such titles as Super Mario Bros., Cowboy Bebop, The Legend of Zelda, Chrono Cross, Mega Man 2 and 3, Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VII, Castlevania, and more for AOD 2014 in San Francisco, California and Hideo: Counterpoint was on stage at the Paramount Theater in Seattle, Washington as part of PAX Prime 2013. The group has produced a 4-track studio EP, Songs from The Shiny Mug, a 5-track live EP, An Evening at The Shiny Mug, and they currently publish original anime and game music arrangements along with the sheet music via their YouTube channel every two weeks.
