Announcement !

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

Today I have an announcement !!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I already asked about it on my Facebook fun page tho…

 

 

 

” If I form my own band Juna Serita Band, will you come to see the performance 、、? “

 

Some people offered me to perform what I wanna do at their places but I couldn’t afford to think about it before…

Then so many peple put some comments much more than I expected .

 

 

 

 

Therefore…!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

!!On July 1st!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

!!At RPM in Shimokitazawa ,Tokyo!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

!! I’ll have the first gig of Juna Serita Band !!

 

 

 

 

I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita, but I don’t wanna be only bass guitar player.

This is because  all my bass hero plays not only as backup-musician, but also solo artist !!

They show different performances with their solo work .

 

 

In the case of Tal Wilkenfeld , I think she played the guitar more than bass guitar  on Japanese tour…

 

Then I could see she wants to play not only bass guitar . She wants to play MUSIC.

 

 

Some people often ask me what I wanna be , like recording musician, tour musician, band , bass teacher , and so on..

Actually then I’m not sure how I should answer because there are toooooooo many things that I wanna do.

I wanna be a recording musician, I wanna perform with my favorite artist as backup-musician, I wanna be more freedom when I jam with musicians, And also I wanna create many works .

(some people disagree with my opinion, but it doesn’t matter because it’s my life.)

 

 

Anyway !

This is the band!  I used to have solo performance with minus one tracks but Juna Serita Band must be totally different with it ! Both my original songs and cover songs.

(I already decided the set list 80% ♪♪)

I’m preparing a song that everione can sing together,too!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And !!!!!!

 

Most important information .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The member is…………

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’ll tell you guys maybe some other time .

(Ladies love playing hard to get♡.)

 

※RPM is very small bar. If you come to the gig, please reserve soon♡ Through the comment box on my blog or Facebook fan page or twitter.

 

 

 

 

See ya!

I uploaded new video

 

 

 

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

 

I uploaded new video on my youtube channel.

That is a digest video that I played in California  . (Anaheim & Los Angels)

Unfortunately , I don’t have all  of  my performance video. So not good enough at all though .

Please check it out  and puts some comments if you want ; )

 

 

 

 

By the way  , recently  I actually talking with a person to do something together ; )  Maybe some people can guess who the person is if they check my SNS often. : )

I was thinking I wanna play and create something with her when I listened to her songs  for the first time.

She is kickass .    I hope I will show my fans the collaboration ASAP ♪

 

I tried to wink but that was difficult… lol

Strange .

 

See ya!!

one more gig.

 

 

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

 

Finally I updated live schedules  on my official website!!

I want to change some design in particular head picture . In fact score of people has told me to change it . Still ,unfortunately I don’t have the one which matches the size .

I’ve been  thinking about it for a long time but I’m not sure yet when I can get it.

Anyway, 2017 is finishing .  I have only one more gig as SHOKA OKUBO BLUES PROJECT on December 31.

The event called New Year Rock Festival is presented by Yuya Uchida. We performed there last year,too.

I really appreciate for inviting us again.

It will be on the TV I think as last time. So if you have some plans on the day already, you can check our performance later through TV program.

However , to be honest I want you to come there if possible…. of course ♡

See ya!!!

Compared with someone

 

 

 

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

 

I feel good today but I have diarrhea without stomach ache .

Losing weight is good, but losing the protein I had is bad!!! I don’t wanna lose my muscle mass.

 

I went to a lesson of English conversation in the evening.

There were 3 students including me in the class.

Other students had better English skills than me.

It’s important to compared with previous myself but it’s also important to compared with someone.

I need to study English more seriously…

 

By the way, I have a gig tomorrow with some nice guitar players at Oto yokocho in Ueno, Tokyo.

It’s not a band, don’t have rehearsal . So probably it’ll be kind of jam session.
I’m looking forward to the gig because I’ll perform some guitar players I’ve never met.

See you tomorrow.
I think about tomorrow’s costume.♪♪

Hey guys! I am a bass guitar player Juna Serita!

 

I went to the personal gym called beaugoal  in Roppongi today!

I think this training is hardest for me. It’s always killing me.

However drinking protein juice couldn’t be better after hardest workout! LOVE.

 

And I had a meeting of SHOKA OKUBO BLUES PROJECT at Shibuya in Tokyo.

The caffe called JINNAN CAFE she chose.

There were many healthy foods.

I’m sure that’s why it is very popular from women. I am happy to eat many vegetables .
