The annual Music and Games festival, MAGFest, has finally unleashed its big performer announcement for MAGFest X: Nobuo Uematsu and his new band EARTHBOUND PAPAS will perform!
Most of you no doubt know Nobuo Uematsu for his incredible compositional contributions to Square Enix's Final Fantasy series. Following the disbanding of his group The Black Mages—with which Uematsu performed bombastic covers of FF tunes—he formed EARTHBOUND PAPAS. The lineup is as follows:
Nobuo Uematsu - Keyboards - Composer for most of the Final Fantasy Series
Michio Okamiya - Guitar - Performer/arranger on several Square Enix soundtracks, and former Black Mages member
Yoshitaka Hirota - Bass - Shadow Hearts trilogy composer
Tsutomu Narita - Keyboards and Guitar - Composer for UnchainBlades ReXX
Arata Hanyuda - Drums - Performer on the More Friends, and Final Fantasy III (DS) albums, and former Black Mages member
Who's going to MAG? I'll be there!
