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..)
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 !!
New collaboration with the young talented musicians !!

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! ”
I’ve never thought I am !! but sounds so cute ♡♡ Yes I wanna be “the Queen of Funk “!! yey yey!!
I have had performance with either Natsumi or Yashiro before, but it’ll be my first time to perform with Kozo Suganuma in other words “King of number of moves in hit”. (I’m sorry to say but I have no confidence of my translation .lol)
I can’t expect how the gig it will be. It’ll takes place after I come back to Japan from Los Angeles.
Therefore, I’m pretty sure I can show you guys matured me more than now 333
