Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!
Today I had a jam session called “curry club ” as a host member at Okachimachi Jam Session in Tokyo!
I’m not sure why the session is named curry club though…
Today’s host member
Guitar: Naoto Saito
Bass: Juna Serita
Drums: Yu Sasaoka
Naoto brought cheese cake for everyone as a gift of white day!!!
Seems like it is made by his wife . So yummy !!! Thanks Mrs.Saito !!
Many musicians came there especially vocalist!!
I think it’s advantage of curry club that many singers come every time .
In my opinion , most jam sessions have instrumental players and they play only instrumental music . Of course singer is also allowed to come there though.
Unfortunately , There aren’t so many bass guitar player today compared with other instrumental player .
Therefore I was playing a lot! lol
Thanks for coming everyone!!!
