Naoto Kaiho @ Ichikawashi-bunnkakaikann

 

 

 

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

 

Today I had a hall concert of Naoto Kaiho at Ichikawa-shi Bunkakaikan in Chiba.

 

He is musical star ! So most songs on the set list are musical song.

I hadn’t played kinda musical songs ever actually.

At the first rehearsal day(day before yesterday ) , I got music charts and  we played  at sight .  I even didn’t know songs too ….

The songs are totally different with that I normally play. Change the rhythm many times ,change the tempo many times , there are many complicated “rit “, I was confused, so I practiced by myself all day for understanding songs after that.

Now actually I’m really into it because super dramatic !!

 

I was very nervous but I could relax after it was started .

Anyway the vocalist Naoto Kaiho is fantastic . I got shocked when I hear his voice for the first time. His voice must be one in a billion !!

Appreciate for the good opportunity .

 

With the guitar player Osato-san ; )!! Thanks for teaching me a lot !

After the concert . I couldn’t help my appetite …..

Curry ; )

 

See ya!!!

Buffet : )

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

Today I went take a vocal lesson .

I was checking Juna and The Sauce first show ‘s video  Yesterday .

I thought especially vocal is my weak point .
My target should be “ not being a bass guitar player who can sing too . Being a bass guitar player who can sing too AS A VOCALIST “

 

After the vocal lesson I headed to Hilton Hotel in Shinjuku for performance.

Actually it is my first time to perform at hotels .

Thanks for involving me guys : ) !!

Healthy life….

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

Recently I was slacked about everything . Especially about the health .  

My schedules were so hectic , so I couldn’t afford to think of myself . My life style was not good these days . Like  I take 3 cup of coffee a day (for me it’s not good thing, which means I count on coffee too much without sleeping ), I eat only doughnut a day(That was only sometime tho. this i.e. because no time.) , something like that.

So , I thought I should take foods which can make my body better !!! I meant , not only snacks lol

Today’s Juna ’s Kitchen !!

・Stir fried meat and vegetables (potato , onions ,beans )

・Miso soup which has to-fu and seaweed 

I can cook only  something easy when I have lots on my plate….  

It was still nice ; ) I used olive oil / pepper salt  as seasonings .

I usually upload my cooking picts on my instagram’s story . Check it out ;  )

 

 

 

! Juna Serita’s instagram !

 

In July , in my opinion  my schedules were kinda packed but seems like my schedules are totally full this month !!!

The reason is that I’m gonna perform with new artist that I haven’t played with ever .

 

Anyway  I have to keep to have my good motivation whole month !!! Because I wanna play better !!

 See ya!!!!

Jeff Beck Night vol.4 @ Akasaka CRAWFISH

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

Today I had a gig which is Jeff Beck tribute live.

member 

Guitar: Isamu Hoda 

Keyboard : Harunobu Okubo

Bass : Juna Serita

Drums ; Daiji Okai 

Vocal : Kenny

 

It’s already 4th time to perform together , the vocalist Kenny is new face tho.

We played both Jeff Beck’s song and Jeff Beck Group ‘s songs.

One of his most popular songs called ‘Cause We’ve Ended As Lovers , we play it everytime.

I think Jeff Beck ‘s fans definitely know the video on youtube which has bass solo played by Tal Wilkenfeld .

So I also play bass solo on the song everytime  . Actually  I’m a huge fun of her. I went see her performance twice a day while she had concerts in Japan. I wanna take solo like her but she is just awesome !!! My play is still far from her.

Anyway thanks for coming everyone !!!

My next gig is on July 1st which is my band’s debut live ; )

The seats are almost booked  but still available maybe one or two.

 

See ya!!

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

 

Today I had a meeting in the afternoon in Roppongi .

Talked about some plans and jammed a little .

I ate soki soba there, which is nice !! I’ve been to Okinawa only once for school trip . And I really liked Okinawa soul foods !! However usually I don’t have opportunities to have Okinawa foods . I’m so pleased that I could have it for the first time in a while ; )!! yum yum

 

After that I had a performance at Giga bar Tokyo in Minami-Aoyama.

Finally my repertories got over 100!!! YEY!!!! . (now I can play 112 songs on their song list.)

Which means , I need to learn left 140 songs tho …lol

It’s kinda hard but such a good chance to learn old school.

See ya!!

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!!

Rie a.k.a. Suzaku @ Silver elephant Kichijoji

 

 

 

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

 

Today I had a show  with this member at Kichijoji Silver Elephant !

member

guitar : Rie a.k.a. Suzaku

keyboard :Marie Fukai

bass :Juna Serita

drums:Kanade Sato

 

Rie was saying “the people who don’t come tonight will lose important moments in their life “(in Japanese, so I’m not sure my translating is correct or not tho)

I agree with her because this member is just amazing !!! I got goosebumps with just the rehearsal !! lol

There are lots solo parts for each members .

It’s quite rare that I play a lot bass solo…maybe only when I play with Rie .

I need be more technical anyway !

That was a fantastic night .  I really respect this member.

Hopefully we will play together again soon !!

 

See ya!!!
