yolis birthday live@ Hyphen Jiyugaoka

 

 

 

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

Today I had a gig with my most favorite singer yolis !!!!

member :

vocal : yolis

keyboard : Gakushi

bass:  Juna Serita

drums : Takao Toshiyuki

dance: Maiko

This is yolis ‘s birthday live!! I don’t know her age yet in spite of the fact that she is my best friend , but probably 20 years old or something , maybe next year too !! ; )

Many people came there !! A person talked to me this gig was much better than the last gig , shouldn’t be compared .  yey yey ; ) I really enjoyed the last gig too but this time I was like over the moon !

We performed around 14 songs including encore song. we really haven’t expected the audience ask us to play one more song , so we just jammed and yolis raped . That was such a special moment in my life.

The keyboard player Gakushi is the  best keyboard player I’ve ever seen in Japan !!  I’m so glad that finally I could play with him . from rehearsals he always leaded me to better performance.  Then I realized how bandmaster should be , how great he is.

Anyway , HAPPY BIRTHDAY my sis yolis!!!!!   I’m always proud of you .

The owner  gave us a glass of wine ; )   Thanks ; )

See ya!!

Rie a.k.a. Suzaku @ Silver elephant Kichijoji

 

 

 

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita !!

 

Today I had a show  with this member at Kichijoji Silver Elephant !

member

guitar : Rie a.k.a. Suzaku

keyboard :Marie Fukai

bass :Juna Serita

drums:Kanade Sato

 

Rie was saying “the people who don’t come tonight will lose important moments in their life “(in Japanese, so I’m not sure my translating is correct or not tho)

I agree with her because this member is just amazing !!! I got goosebumps with just the rehearsal !! lol

There are lots solo parts for each members .

It’s quite rare that I play a lot bass solo…maybe only when I play with Rie .

I need be more technical anyway !

That was a fantastic night .  I really respect this member.

Hopefully we will play together again soon !!

 

See ya!!!

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita !!

 

Today I had a rehearsal for a singer song writer called yolis with this member !!

member

Vocal :yolis

Bass: Juna Serita

Keyboard : Gakushi

Drums : Toshiyuki Takao

 

We will performa on June 23rd at hyphen Jiyugaoka.  It’ll be my second time to perform with the badass singer yolis!!!  She is my most favorite Japanese singer and also my best friend ; ) You can find her songs on apple music !! My most favorite songs are Getto Queen / Alice in a miller / I love you girl . : )!! My TOP 3!!

 

And … I’m huge fan of the keyboard player Gakushi actually !! His playing is awesome, I couldn’t stop grinning while we’re playing songs because of his dope groove !!!!!!!

 

The drummer Toshiyuki Takao, I really enjoyed to play with his drums  and pads !! He is lefty and his setting is kinda special according to Gakushi. Today’s rehearsal studio was kinda tiny. So he couldn’t set his drum as usual but he was still so great !

We will have one more rehearsal before the gig. I’m looking forward to playing with them again !!!

 

BTW I ran into a bass guitar player OKAPY  on the way to the rehearsal !!

I do love her playing and her personality of course this pretty face too ♪

Our characters are opposite I guess . She is always bright like a sun and positive thinking.  She has many good points that I don’t have . So I love and respect her ; )!! What a coincidence ♪

She made my feeling good all day ; )!!!thanks.

 

 

See ya!!

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!!

 

Today I had a recording from early morning ! 10:30 AM, which means I left home at 8 :30 AM. How healthy life ,isn’t it !? lol

 This time I played with the  badass drummer called Daichi san who always plays with the most popular artists in Japan like Ayumi Hamasaki /EXILE / Yuna Ito / Lisa / and so on.

 

I’m so happy that I could play with him , appreciate for this opportunity !  

That was maybe within two hours or something  but I learned a lot from his drumming , such as how to groove in the song / attitude /  etc..

 

I really enjoyed it!  I’m really looking forward to listening to the end result !! 

Recently I’m getting some recordings , So  I was thinking  I should make “works ” page on my website .

It’ll be when I have time tho… : )

See ya!!

And after that I went to see this show !!

I know PENGUIN well !! I used to play with them as another act .

Penguin is so entertainers as usual !!!

 

 

After the show I went to see my friend’s performance  to Hilton Hotel in Shinjuku .

Rie’s RH

 

 

 

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

Today I had a rehearsal with Rie a.k.a. Suzaku

member

Guitar: Rie a.k.a. Suzaku

Keyboard : Marie Fukai

Bass: Juna Serita

Drums : Kanade Sato

I have played with the guitar player Rie for a while .  Her songs are actually quite difficult and change the rhythm a lot .  I was so confused when we played together at the first time.  However ,  I’m getting used to her songs little by little. Then the songs are very fun to play !! Dramatic , tricky , sometimes technical, there are a lot of attractions .

The keyboard player Marie Fukui,  on June 17th it’ll be our first time to perform together but actually we already jammed. When I was hosting jam sessions , she came to play there ; ) !

About Kanade Sato, I watch her video sometimes but we had never ever played together . I’m so glad that I could hear her drumming in real rife.

I can’t believe she is still hight school student . lol

She’s got great chops . What a talented girl ….!!

Anyway I’m so looking forward to the show !

June 17th at Kichijoji Silver Elephant !

That must be fantastic !!

 

After the rehearsal , I had  bass lessons .

I used to teach bass guitar when I was 19~20 years old at a music school but I quite because I just wanted to focus on my performance .

But now , I’m already adult . And I got lots knowledge and experiences more than before. So I thought now I can help my students. : ) So I restarted teaching job this month ♪

See ya!!

Wanted !!

 

 

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

What’s up peeps ? I’ve been keeping quite busy .

As you know, I’m forming my own band !! And the 1st gig is on July 1st .

We had the first meeting a few days ago !!

Guitar Ryan Carter and Drums Kenny Mosley !!

Of course I know both of them but it was their first time to meet  each other .

That was such a funny meeting !! lol  I completely  realized I chose the BEST members !! The band will be fantastic , I’m pretty sure . ; D

 

Anyway , I was thinking about the new name , because just “Juna Serita Band ”is too normal , nothing special ,right?

We came up with an idea , seemed like they love the name ! but in the case if you have a nice idea about the band name , please let me know ♪♪

 

Anyway don’t forget to book your schedule on July 1st !!!

 

 

See ya!!

Akane Tajima @ Shimokitazawa club 251

 

 

 

Hey guys !! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita !!

 

Today I performed at Shimokitazawa club 251 for Akane Tajima as a backup-musician .

Member :

Vocal&flute Akane Tajima
Gt&Cho Kenta Kato
Ba&Cho Juna Serita
Dr. Takuro Yoshida

This is my first time to have a gig with these members .

I used to perform with a pianist and drummer for Akane .
So this time , feels like  kinda rock band more than before .

I have lots backing vocal sections too while playing the bass guitar  . Sometimes a little complicated but it’s beautiful melodies . I’m so inspired by her sense as a creator .

I’ll have a gig with her in July again , and also I’ll have recording for her new albums this month .

It’s exciting ; )!

See ya !!

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

I was cooking this afternoon . Juna’s Kitchen

seafood pilaf , spinach soup , stir fried pork and vegetables .

In my opinion, stir fried pork and vegetables were most yummy ; )

 

This evening , I had a jam session as host member at Ikebukuro Somethin ‘ Jazz Club.

The guitar player Ko Tomiyama invited me to play together , thanks !

It’s weekend , so many nice musicians came there , appreciate !

This is a guitar player Kay Brown from Korea.

I was shocked ! He is just awesome !!!!!!

You can see how nice player he is with this video.

 

I hope I will play with him again ; )

 

BTW I’m hosting jam sessions at Ikebukuro Somethin’ jazz club B2 on third Tuesday every month from July .  Probably I’ll be not only a bass player , but also a vocalist then !  Exited  ; )

 

 

It’s been almost 4 years since I met him . Badass bassist called Hayato “toyo” Toyosaka .

His hair has grown up …

I borrowed his hair as my new front  hair ; ) Looks not bad ; )

 

See ya!!
