Based in Boston, MA, “Video Game Orchestra” is a widely acclaimed music project that performs arrangements of mega popular video game scores in their signature “rockestral” style, which includes a high-energy rock band, singers, and an orchestra.

Founded in 2008 by Okinawan-native musician/guitarist Shota Nakama, Video Game Orchestra (aka VGO) quickly gained popularity for its engaging live musical performances that place entertainment and excitement at the forefront of their shows.

VGO has been featured in a number of large-scale international gaming events such as PAX East, PAX Prime, Brasil Game Show, ChinaJoy, San Diego Comic Con, Thailand Game Show, and more making them one of the few international video game music acts today.

In between tours, VGO is actively involved in the creation of soundtracks for video games with their music and video production company, soundtrec. VGO musicians can be found credited on major AAA titles such as Final Fantasy XV as well as indie smash hits like No Straight Roads and Gigabash.


VGO most recently collaborated with MARVEL to produce their first-ever online concert for their “Marvel Future Revolutions.”
