On January 21, 2004, the Museum of Making Music named its fifth gallery after Roland founder and CEO, Ikutaro Kakehashi. More than 80 of Kakehashi's close friends and colleagues attended the gallery-naming celebration, which took place at the museum's facility in Carlsbad, Calif.

After an unsuspecting Kakehashi was ushered to the location under the impression that he was to attend a private business meeting, Carolyn Grant, executive director of the Museum of Making Music, appeared at the gallery to announce him that the gallery was being named in his honor. Gallery five is now officially called the "Ikutaro Kakehashi/Roland Corporation" gallery. After an official ribbon-cutting ceremony, Roland U.S. president Dennis Houlihan congratulated Kakehashi with a warm speech, and was followed by comments by Larry "Link" Linkin, president of Board of Trustees of the Museum of Making Music, and Joe Lamond, the museum's president and CEO.

Featuring more than 500 vintage instrument exhibits, performances and education outreach programs, the Museum of Making Music highlights the innovators and inventions that shaped popular music.
