DA PUMP consists of Issa, Yukinari, Ken and Shinobu. All of them were born in Okinawa.

They came out on 11 June 1997 with their first single "Feelin' Good -It's PARADISE-". They dance very well and choreograph their songs on their own. Their dance is very energetic and dynamic and Issa (main vocal) sings very well. DA PUMP fascinates fans, including me, with their dance and songs.

They are around as not only song group but also actors. They appeared in some movies. Shinobu and Issa appeared in TV dramas "Churasan" and "Let's go Nagata-cho" respectively.
