Buffet : )

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

Today I went take a vocal lesson .

I was checking Juna and The Sauce first show ‘s video  Yesterday .

I thought especially vocal is my weak point .
My target should be “ not being a bass guitar player who can sing too . Being a bass guitar player who can sing too AS A VOCALIST “

 

After the vocal lesson I headed to Hilton Hotel in Shinjuku for performance.

Actually it is my first time to perform at hotels .

Thanks for involving me guys : ) !!

Healthy life….

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

Recently I was slacked about everything . Especially about the health .  

My schedules were so hectic , so I couldn’t afford to think of myself . My life style was not good these days . Like  I take 3 cup of coffee a day (for me it’s not good thing, which means I count on coffee too much without sleeping ), I eat only doughnut a day(That was only sometime tho. this i.e. because no time.) , something like that.

So , I thought I should take foods which can make my body better !!! I meant , not only snacks lol

Today’s Juna ’s Kitchen !!

・Stir fried meat and vegetables (potato , onions ,beans )

・Miso soup which has to-fu and seaweed 

I can cook only  something easy when I have lots on my plate….  

It was still nice ; ) I used olive oil / pepper salt  as seasonings .

I usually upload my cooking picts on my instagram’s story . Check it out ;  )

 

 

 

! Juna Serita’s instagram !

 

In July , in my opinion  my schedules were kinda packed but seems like my schedules are totally full this month !!!

The reason is that I’m gonna perform with new artist that I haven’t played with ever .

 

Anyway  I have to keep to have my good motivation whole month !!! Because I wanna play better !!

 See ya!!!!

Jeff Beck Night vol.4 @ Akasaka CRAWFISH

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

Today I had a gig which is Jeff Beck tribute live.

member 

Guitar: Isamu Hoda 

Keyboard : Harunobu Okubo

Bass : Juna Serita

Drums ; Daiji Okai 

Vocal : Kenny

 

It’s already 4th time to perform together , the vocalist Kenny is new face tho.

We played both Jeff Beck’s song and Jeff Beck Group ‘s songs.

One of his most popular songs called ‘Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers , we play it everytime.

I think Jeff Beck ‘s fans definitely know the video on youtube which has bass solo played by Tal Wilkenfeld .

So I also play bass solo on the song everytime  . Actually  I’m a huge fun of her. I went see her performance twice a day while she had concerts in Japan. I wanna take solo like her but she is just awesome !!! My play is still far from her.

Anyway thanks for coming everyone !!!

My next gig is on July 1st which is my band’s debut live ; )

The seats are almost booked  but still available maybe one or two.

 

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!!!

That was such a fun time . Appreciate .

Toni is planning to perform in the end of year with the same member again ; )

And after that I went to see this show !!

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

And the bass player introduced the guitar player called Jun Sumida who plays in September 6 .

I really enjoyed both two bands !!

Probably I’ll play wth Jun Sumida in near future . I saw his playing first time but that was amazing !!

Penguin is so entertainers as usual !!!

 

 

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

I was gonna only listen to their playing , but the drummer Alex let me sit in !  We jammed  Chameleon .

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!!
