The ID Spring Roll is the signature fundraiser for the Seattle Chinatown International District Preservation and Development Authority (SCIDpda). Since 1975, SCIDpda has led the effort to preserve, promote, and develop the Seattle Chinatown International District as a vibrant community and unique ethnic neighborhood. Our goal is to ensure community members of all income levels, ages, and ethnicities can live and thrive in our neighborhood.
Born in Kochi, Japan, raised in Seattle, Washington. Tomo Nakayama has been an active and versatile member of the Northwest music scene for the better part of a decade. Whether performing as frontman in his art-rock band Grand Hallway, playing multiple instruments in local rock groups (Gold Leaves, Sera Cahoone, The Maldives), or collaborating with orchestras (composer Jherek Bischoff, Portland Cello Project, Seattle Rock Orchestra), his musicianship and stage presense are not to be missed.
“The most compelling moment is a musical interlude in which Jenny and Paul attend a performance by Tomo Nakayama, the lead singer of the Seattle band Grand Hallway. Delivered by Mr. Nakayama in a plaintive cry as he accompanies himself on guitar, his ballad “Horses” distills the inchoate longings of these likable characters more effectively than any spoken words. “Is it a blessing or a curse to be found?” the lyrics wonder. “Is it a burden or a gift to be bound?” – New York Times
