Happy birthday to me

 

 

 

 

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

 

My dad brought crabs to me as present(?)

yeeeehhhhh ; ) !

I don’t have gorgeous osechi ryori but I feel so happy!!

And my mom made pumpkin cake for me instead creamy cake because I’m on a diet.

It’s healthy but natural sweet tastes !!!

Very matches soy latte .

And my fan gave me birthday present at the last gig!!!

woooooooooow it’s very useful!!!   I wanna try it in rehearsal studio with big bass amp sooner !!

 

And my grandmother gave me money ; ( !    I’m so poor still now in spite of that I’m not a student already…. lol

Thanks.

 

 

I took my parents to a omelette and rice restaurant .

I’m so happy that my mom looked fine . However my dad was saying that for him the volume is not good enough at all …..lol

He is quite overweight  , so I ‘m really afraid his health. I want him to take care and I told him it again and again but he has never accepted my suggestion ……

 

And my elder sister gave me a one-piece dress through my mom .

According to my sis, it is the  same with hers.

I’m looking forward to walking  by her side with the cloth .   ; )!

 

 

 

See ya.

Yuya Uchida New Year World Rock Festival

 

 

 

 

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

 

Today I performed  as SHOKA OKUBO BLUES PROJECT featuring Chihana at Yuya Uchida New Year World Rock Festival in Ginza Hakuhinkan.

 

After sound check, I went to Soba restaurant with Shoka . In Japan, we usually eat Soba (is kinda noodle)at the end of year. It’s Japanese culture.

However , I ate katudon(deep fried pork on the rice )instead soba because it looked very delicious.   Shaka was wondering why I don’t eat soba…lol

I’m satisfied with it♪♪

Anyway, I’m so happy to perform here again!!

Perhaps majority of people must be  so busy today but thanks a million for choosing to come to the gig!!

Today’s member

Gt.Vo Shoa Okubo & Chihana

Ba.Cho Juna Serita

Dr.  Makotomo Sonohara

It was fun time. I really enjoyed the performance.

If you couldn’t see it , you can check on TV on January 7th. ; )

SHOKA OKUBO FUNKY PROJECT’s drummer Emi Yonekubo came to see us ; )!

I was really missing Emi !!!!! She is one of my few friends…!!  Shaka , Juna and Emi will go on tour  in January . I’m looking forward to performing with Emi again.

 

All acts were awesome. Especially I’m really inspired by Naoto Takenaka’s performance .

In my opinion , he is very famous as an actor . Today he was not only singer , but also entertainer !!!  And he smells pretty good actually….♪

 

Thanks Mr. Rock’n Roller Yuya Uchida for inviting us.

I wanna perform next year, too…♪

Happy new year you all!!

See ya.

smoothy (protein + acai+milk+soy-milk+green juice)/apple/

lunch: cream stew/avocado /almond /

dinner:dumplings

snack :vienna sausage /cheese /cream puff /

 

 

Today I went to Shibuya for buying new costume .

First, I couldn’t beat my appetite…..lol  So got in dumpling restaurant .

It is deep fried dumpling , deep fried chicken , and some vegetables …   These were nice but frankly speaking I prefer more natural tastes. (For me it was kinda salty.)

But other menu (baked dumpling and boiled dumpling )was fantastic!!

If I have a opportunity, I ‘ll come here again ; ) !!

 

overtime, I visited SHIBUYA 109 but there is  no my cup of tea and also expensive…

So I went to FOREVER 24 after 109.

There ware many clothes that I like!!

It’s so elegant !!!! Don’t you think so?

I’m a little worried whether I got fat too much or not…. ; (

Anyhow I can’t wait to wear my new costume ; )!!!!!

 

 

At night , I had a meeting with a guitar player Atsushi Shido for gig in April .

According to him, the gig ill be kinda metal music.

I’m looking forward to playing it because usually I don’t have a opportunity to play metal music on the stage. : )

 

Anyway, I have final gig in 2017 tomorrow .

Have a nice year everyone.

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!!!

Bass battle with my hero Jino

 

 

 

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

 

Today , I went to  Mobius Yotsuya for jam session.  One of the host members Kazui invited me . I have met him only once but he was very impressive  because of his cool bass playing. I realized soon that he loves Marcus Miller from his phrase. ; )

He is Kenji “Jino” Hino’s disciple . I was really looking forward to seeing Jino, too.(He is also the host member.)

It’s been about 1 year since I took his lesson in Ikebukuro  .   I’m a big fan of his fantastic groove.

 

When I arrived there , it was already full of people and the session was a blast!!

 

On my tern, I performed with Jino.

 

Slap bass battle Juna VS Jino……. !?!?

 

https://www.instagram.com/p/BdQZbpmgn2D/?taken-by=junaserita

ohhhhhhh  He beat me…  ; (  lol    Then I felt nervous and was sweating .

I wanna beat him someday….. ; (!!!

Anyhow I’m so happy that I could see his bass play for the first time in a while.

 

I need to practice more by the time I battle him next……!!

 

 

See ya ; )

Session Host @ Okachimachi Jam Session

 

 

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

 

Today I had a rehearsal with Gt&Vo Shoka Okubo / Dr Makotomo Sonohara / Gt&Vo Chihana.

It’s been a long time to see Shoka and Makotomo!!! I really missed them, so  I was going bananas.  Shaka Okubo Blues Project (Shoka+Makotomo+Juna)will have a concert featuring Chihana at Ginza Hakuhinkann for Yuya Uchida New Year World Rock Festival .

We’ll perform three songs together .  I need to consider which costume I will  wear because my body size probably changed…I’m “growing up”…. ; (

After the rehearsal, I was a session host with a guitar player Naoto Saito and a drummer Yuto Sasaoka at Okachimahi Jam Session .

Many musicians came there , thanks a million !

I played the drums only a song,too….. lol

It was terrible… I realized that I don’t have a sense of drumming….lol

These days  I was usually alone. I kind of like it but today I really enjoyed being with people and laughing well.

 

I feel happy that I can work as a musician even though I hadn’t been in Japan for several months .

I really appreciate it.

 

See ya.

KAHORI & Juna Serita@Strawberry fiels ,Komazawa

 

 

 

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

breakfast

orange / smoothie (protein + soy milk + acai +  a bit of milk + amazake)

lunch

tomato / stir fried pork, bean sprout ,and egg/ natto with kimchi /

dinner

sake / fried tofu & eggplant / pumpkin soup /

 

 

 

Today I had a gig in Komazawa strawberry fields with singer song writer called Kahori.

Both we performed there as solo player.

 

It was the first time in a while that I perform alone.

Not only I used some backing track but also I performed just bass & vocal.

I was so nervous… maybe you could see it…lol

 

Today’s set list

 

1 Spark

2 Get the funk out ma face

3 Listen tiny voice inside my heart (original )

4 Isn’t she lovely

5 Power

6 Dishonest man(original)

7 Run for cover

 

The reason I chose  Isn’t she lovely is that when I was in the Philippines I taught a teacher to how to play the bass guitar using that. That’s why it is my memorial song ; D!!

 

And I wanted to challenge one more thing from my English studies. So I translated my original song’s lyrics  into Japanese to English.

This is Japanese lyrics video, but today I sang in English.

You don’t know everything about me   

It’s hard time to wait for you in the dark room alone 

You don’t know everything about me

Never be able to say something bad about what you do

 

I hate to be used to prepending not to know you

I want to  hold your hand and walk by your side 

According to the men who have to get back for their treasure 

it sounds selfish I do not mean it

 

You are everything you are    You are everything you are

Hold me tightly break me so  as not to be stuck on such you again 

Oh head over heels in love  Oh head over heels in love

My heart is full of you all the time  I can’t breath I can’t breath 

because of you

 

You might be angry with me 

that I have lost my pierce inside of the car

You might be angry with me 

I am realizing you want no-one to know that I’m his toy

 

How should I do to get his attention oh my

How should I do to be with the guy forever 

sleep and forget all of things sunrises  world would change 

I can find out you  then  would you love me? 

This time for sure

 

You are everything you are     You are everything you are

Hold me tightly brea me so as not to be stuck on such you again

Oh cannot get out his arms  Oh cannot get out his arms 

I was going to say Good Bye that is why I came to see him to the same place

 

Sharing some skins is only the way to see him 

but true and false are not easy to tell apart 

I’m fed up with your excuses  my words are may gonna hurt you 

Please shut my mouth with your kiss 

Just laugh it off as per usual 

because you are dishonest man

 

You are everything you are   You are everything you are

Hold me tightly break me so  as not to be stuck on such you again

Why don’t you always call my name?

Why don’t you say to me I  love you

Should I just wait for that you will do farewell to me?

 

You are everything you are  You are everything you are

Hold me tightly break me so as not to be stuck on such you again

Oh head over heels  in love  Oh head over heels in love

My heart is full of you all the time  

I can’t breath   I can’t breath because of you

Seeing you  seeing your face 

I am pleased , I am pleased with just only for that

 

You don’t know everything about me

The small comment you say as joke confusing me so deep

You don’t know everything about me

I am just waiting for you to come and spoon me again

 

I’m so done with type it. lol    Is it long…..?  In fact this song is over 7 minutes .

 

Another act Kahori’s stage was fantastic!!

She is only 18 years old… I’m pretty sure she’ll go far in the future : )!

And we had a session as encore .

・Konnyawa karasawagi

・Johnny B good

・Sweet home Chicago

・I’m ready

The guest drummer was Desire. I met her 1 year ago. Since then I was keen to play with her . So I am so happy today!

Desire is not only a great drummer,but also superb singer . I do love her voice.

 

My next gig is maybe December 31st as Shoka Okubo Blues Project.

Oh it reminds me. The following day January 1st is my birthday : D!!
