Flier

 

 

 

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

 

Today I cooked dinner for the first time in a while . I usually eat out .

〜Juna’s Kitchen 〜

・stir fried vegetables

・miso soup which has tofu and seaweed

・cooked salmon and beans

I had lived by myself for 4 years but I felt lonely to eat dinner  alone at home . No prob tho ..

I hope my grandma will get better soon and come back home . ( she is hospitalized now..)

 

BTW!

 

Today I have one thing that I wanna get the word out !!

That is about Juna Serita Band !!!

I created a flier for our first gig  !! So cool , isn’t it ?? I might have a sense 😍

Well , I wanna introduce about the member !!

First , the drummer Kenny Mosley !!

I met him for the first time when I was 19 years old . A guitar teacher in university invited me to play together at the gig , then the drummer was him !

Actually I couldn’t understand English at all and Kenny don’t understand Japanese ( I doubt him tho.. lol ) . So we just talked only a little before playing together like Hello, nice to meet you , that’s all .

However when the performance started , I got shocked !! He is the kick-ass drummer !!  Since then, I’ve thought I wanna play with him more and more !!

 

Next , about the guitar player Ryan Carter!

We actually got to know each other very recently .  He can handle all genre , not only the guitar , but also other instruments like bass, drums , keyboard , etc…! Especially he is great at bass guitar , I got so jealous when I heard it lol.

When I had sessions with him , I felt he makes songs more attractive. Kind of an arranger !  So I came up him first when I form my own band !!

 

To be honest , I’m a little weak . Basically negative thinking .  Therefore when I ask them to play with me in my band , I was so afraid ….

But they said  “ It would be my pleasure to play in your band “ . ; (!!  How sweet they are !!

 

I can’t wait to perform with them !

Anyway please book your schedule now for my band’s gig on July 1st !!

 

See ya !!

the Queen of Funk….?

 

 

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

 

Did you guys already check it out ??

New collaboration with the young talented  musicians !!

Good Day For The Blues – Sina feat. Emma Marie

⭐︎Vocals & Guitar – Emma Marie

⭐︎Bass Juna Serita

⭐︎Lead Guitar Andrei Cerbu

⭐︎Keyboards – Rick Benbow

⭐︎Drums – Sina

Written by Emma Marie, arranged by YourSoundTube

 

That’s soooooo  cool right !?  Now I’m watching the video again and again!! lol Perhaps I’m one of the huge fans . They all are fantastic !!

the vocalist Emma Marie : When I got her live performance video before the recording, I was so shocked like “who is the dope blues girl !! “.  I’m pretty sure she’ll be a blues legend lady in near future.

the Lead Guitar Andrei Cerbu: I collaborated with him on Sine’s video before , and the style was hard rock. That’s also pretty cool but I do love his blues guitar ♪♪ Surely his guitar is screaming like a voice !!

the drummer Sina : Sina can  handle everything much more than me. When I first heard her drums, I was watching the video too. So I was thinking  “wow amazing girl !! How has she got the great chops at a young age …!? ” but when I started recording for her and listened her sounds  without video,  I fell in love with her more and more . Even though I don’t see her appearance , my hart got full of the groove by the drums ..!!!  Sex / cute looking / age don’t even matter for her , she is exactly the groove maker .

 

About my bass sounds, I chose the Fender jazz bass as usual .

but the sound is so fat !! Isn’t it ?

The reason is I used pre-amp this time.

MBT-custom .  I just started to use this very recently but it’s already my most favorite one.  Anyway if you didn’t check the video out yet, please check my bass sound ,too ; ) !

 

I also read the comments a little  ! I’m so glad they like the video !! Every comments make me to have a good motivation (^_^)

I found an interesting comment .

” there’s Juna – the Queen of Funk! ”

wooooooooooow

I’ve never thought I am !! but sounds so cute ♡♡ Yes I wanna be “the Queen of Funk “!! yey yey!!

 

See ya!!

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…

Juna Seritaさんの投稿 2018年4月26日(木)

 

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!

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 .

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.♪♪
