Biography

Japan (1982 – 2008)

C-C-B or Coconut Boys (” ココナッツボーイズ ” jp.) was a pop-rock band from Japan 1985to 1989 and then 2008 under the label Polydor Records.

Members:

* Watanabe Hideki (渡辺英樹; Bass, Precussion, Leader)
* Ryu Kouji (笠浩二; Drums)
* Sekiguchi Makoto (関口誠人; Guitar, Saxaphone)
* Tagura Tomohara (田口智治; Keyboard)
* Yonekawa Hideyuki (米川英之; Lead Guitar)

The band formed in 1982 when Watanabe wanted to start a band with Ryu and Sekiguchi as Coconut Boys. They performed at various events and live concerts later that year as they painted a image as the Japanese-made Beach Boys. They got their major debut a year later with the single “Candy”], the image song for a Yoplait Yogurts commercial.

Soon after, the band released their second single as they added Tagura and Yonekura to the band and changed their name to C-C-B. Their big hit came in January 1986 when they released the single “Romantic ga Tomaranai”. Their summer single, “Lucky Chance wo Mou Ichido”, was also a hit as the song gave the band’s first appearance on the end of the year special Kouhaku Uta Gassen. They also won the Gold Award at the 27th Annual Japan Record Awards and the Best Ballad Song Award at the 1986’s FNS Kayousai.
