Phoenix, ARIZONA (July 17th, 2011) Saboten Con adds writer and actor Rob Blatt and Japanese rock group Kazha to their guest list for this year.
Rob Blatt started his career as a healthcare lobbyist in Washington, D.C. but he is now an award-winning writer and actor in Los Angeles. His recent work includes scripting Cartoon Network's "Kekkaishi", and MADHOUSE's exciting new "Wolverine" series airing on G4. As an actor, Rob voiced the role of Shuji for the English-language "Kekkaishi" series. He has also worked on various projects both on television and on the web for Comedy Central, MSN and Comedy.com. In addition, Rob lays claim to the peculiar title of "reality show writer" with credits on NBC's "The Sing-Off" and MTV's "America's Best Dance Crew".
All the way from Tokyo Japan, rock group Kazha will make an appearance at Saboten Con. Lead singer Kazuha Oda which the band gets its name, decided to start the band after her successful solo career. She released several albums in Japan and worked with a wide variety of different artists including the Grammy Award pianist Bob James. The band consists of Kazuha Oda on vocals with Hideki Matsushige on guitar, Yota Sato on bass and Rui Aranai on drums.
Kazha represents the new future of the world music; a fusion of cultures and musical viewpoints that create their sound ranging from soulful, jazz-tinged pop to the verge of Goth metal. The band has said their music "combines the softness of a falling feather with the heaviness of a hurricane".
