Instrumental quartet Vanilla Mood first came together in 2003 and quickly achieved success because they have talent to match their looks. They’re known for covering songs from many different genres with their own unique arrangements. They particularly do justice to some classic American pop songs, that comprise a good part of their repertoire.
Above is the original line-up doing their version of “Tequila.” They are; Emilee (violin), Yui (violin), Mariko (cello), and Keiko (piano). In early 2005, Emilee left the group and was replaced by flutist Waka, rather than another violinist. (See a later performance with Waka after the jump.) Waka left the group in late 2010 and it now appears the remaining three ladies are continuing on as a trio.
