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

 

Today I went to have sushi for lunch with the mature guy Steve!

He is the owner of the bar called Ikebukuro Somethin’ jazz club .

I often have jam session at the bar as host member .  Then we see each other but there is no time to talk enough .

I’m kinda introverted, so I always think something negative about myself .

Then Steve says

“You can do it , don’t worry anything , just have confidence in yourself , like ‘ I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita IN THE WORLD’ !!”

I have no-confidence in myself but his word always make my mind better.

That was a fun time ; )  I could get a nice motivation ; )!

 

 

See ya!!

Rie a.k.a. Suzaku @ Sugamo Shishio

 

 

 

 

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

 

Today  I had a gig as Rie a.k.a. Suzaku instrumental band.

The other act RiViNi is the all female band formed by Rie.

About Rie a.k.a. Suzaku instrumental band, there are many difficult songs !!!!lol

I have performed with her some times but I always feel nervous !!  I’m getting used to it little by little tho…; )⭐︎

Today’s set list 

1Stardust 

2 Time Paradox 

3Southern Wild 

4sunrise 

5Kingdom of the sun

6ocean breeze 

7seven seas 

8Across the sky

I was a little afraid to use 5 strings today because I’m kinda beginner , but  feels like that was not bad.

My next target is using low strings more.

 

I’ll perform with Rie on July 17th,too!

Then we will have a super young talented drummer called Kanade Sato.

She is only 16 years old actually . I’m pretty sure no-one believe it from her drumming…lol

I’m so excited to play with her  ; )  That must be fantastic !!

 

 

 

BTW

I brought original tickets for Juna Serita Band ‘s first gig ; )!

The design is too good ; )  I made it through iPhone application . !!   I’m pretty sure I have a sense !!

The question mark is hiding something..  because it is too good ! I don’t wanna show it so easily …lol

 

 

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…………

(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!

yolis&Juna session@Somethin’ Jazz Club B2

 

 

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

I went to walk around in the morning this is because I wanted to listen to  my bass & vocal original song during I’m relaxed .

(Don’t worry , I’m decent : D)

Surprisingly , about vocal , It was much better to sing while playing the bass .  I haven’t expected .

About bass …. I’m pretty sure only playing the bass guitar would be much better than singing at the same time. I’m gonna record this song with a drummer soon but I just  came up with that I wanna take vocal lesson  at least once for my English pronunciation before the recording  ..lol

Anyway it ‘s so exiting ! I want you guys to hear it soon !

 

 

 

At the night  I had a jam session as host member with musicians!

vocal : yolis

guitar : Ryan Carter

Keyboard : Nobuhiro Takamoto

Drums: Masayoshi Kanazawa

 

We played both vocal songs and instrumental songs. And yolis was rapping ; ) I do love her rap!

My most favorite keyboard player called Gakushi also came there!! He is the best… I got a little nervous to jam with him because I’m a huge fun of him.. lol

 

Anyway thanks for coming everyone!!!

I and yolis will have a gig without any acts at Jiyugaoka Hiphen on June 24th!

Please book your schedule😘

 

See ya!!
