yolis birthday live@ Hyphen Jiyugaoka

 

 

 

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

 

Today I had a gig with my most favorite singer yolis !!!!

member :

vocal : yolis

keyboard : Gakushi

bass:  Juna Serita

drums : Takao Toshiyuki

dance: Maiko

This is yolis ‘s birthday live!! I don’t know her age yet in spite of the fact that she is my best friend , but probably 20 years old or something , maybe next year too !! ; )

Many people came there !! A person talked to me this gig was much better than the last gig , shouldn’t be compared .  yey yey ; ) I really enjoyed the last gig too but this time I was like over the moon !

We performed around 14 songs including encore song. we really haven’t expected the audience ask us to play one more song , so we just jammed and yolis raped . That was such a special moment in my life.

The keyboard player Gakushi is the  best keyboard player I’ve ever seen in Japan !!  I’m so glad that finally I could play with him . from rehearsals he always leaded me to better performance.  Then I realized how bandmaster should be , how great he is.

Anyway , HAPPY BIRTHDAY my sis yolis!!!!!   I’m always proud of you .

The owner  gave us a glass of wine ; )   Thanks ; )

See ya!!

Wanted !!

 

 

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

 

What’s up peeps ? I’ve been keeping quite busy .

As you know, I’m forming my own band !! And the 1st gig is on July 1st .

We had the first meeting a few days ago !!

Guitar Ryan Carter and Drums Kenny Mosley !!

Of course I know both of them but it was their first time to meet  each other .

That was such a funny meeting !! lol  I completely  realized I chose the BEST members !! The band will be fantastic , I’m pretty sure . ; D

 

Anyway , I was thinking about the new name , because just “Juna Serita Band ”is too normal , nothing special ,right?

We came up with an idea , seemed like they love the name ! but in the case if you have a nice idea about the band name , please let me know ♪♪

 

Anyway don’t forget to book your schedule on July 1st !!!

 

 

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!!

We performed together as backup-musician  for a voice actress called Yumi Hara ( IDOL MASTER , etc..) at Namba Hatchi  when I was an university student.

He is still young  but his groove is  matur !! Already has a lot of career .

I’ve never expected that I can meet  him again here♪

 

There was a upright bass , too.

I didn’t use on the recording but I was playing it during a break.

 

We played about 5 or 6 songs

I’m  happy that I played with those great musicians !

Sax: Mike Roberts , Kohei Ando
Keyboard: Naoki Sugi
Guitar: Takuma “beppy “Higashibeppu
Bass: Juna Serita

Wooooooooooooooooooooooooow I was sooooooooo missing tick meat hamburger..🍔😭😭💕💕💕💕 Finally I could meet again with my love …😌❤️

This is the beef hamburger, that was awesome, I was over the moon. 🌝

I’ll have a jam session as host member with the drummer Simon McDowell at Shimokitazawa RPM  on May 1st  .

If you’re free then , join us ; )!

 

 

And after the recording , I had a jam session with a drummer Masayo Nakahata as host member at Nishiogikubo w.jaz!
