A guy looking for singing gigs in the evening or on weekends within or in close proximity of Tokyo, Japan.
Hi there. This is Alvis, a Taiwanese male expected to start a full-time work in Shibuyaku in this coming Aug.
While I do have a full-time job as I said in the beginning, it’s on a contract basis and the hourly wage isn’t very flattering. My work starts from 10 am to 7 pm, almost always from Mon-Fri. And the folks who interviewed me said that working overtime would be a rarity. That kinda makes sense given I’d be paid by the hour. I’ll get a work visa (under the Engineer/Specialist in humanities/International services category) from my company and I’d stay in Tokyo for at least a year (potentially for good!).
In short, due to my future meager income in Tokyo, I am looking for some singing gigs in the evening after my office work to make some pocket money. Any places that I should look into? I am currently still in Taiwan, waiting for my certificate of eligibility that I’d use to apply for a Japanese work visa at the TW-JP office here. If things work out, I should be able to move to Japan in early August. In the meantime, my schedule is rather flexible for a Skype interview. (Skype ID: alvisspeaking)
I’ve always had a burning passion for singing and do frequent karaoke establishments a lot here in Taiwan. On top of it, I’ve entered several singing contests and won the first place most of the time. I prefer and mostly sing hard-rock songs, though I also like and sing ballads and R&B, albeit to a lesser degree.
Just in case language is a relevant factor, I speak very fluent English. Mandarin (aka Chinese), evidently, is my mother tongue, and my Japanese is somewhat lower intermediate.

Looking forward to hearing from y’all! Any pointer will be greatly appreciated!
