HOUSE BAND: Andy Kinlay – Vox / Guitar Bill Benfield – Guitar Juna Serita – Vox / Bass Johnny Walker – Hammond / Piano Lyle Carr – Drums
I had met Andy and Lyle before, but that was first meeting with guitar Bill and keyboard Joynny!!
To be honest, now I’m kinda sick….. So I was looking for the other bass player who can play blues well instead of me but I couldn’t find .
After all that was good because many nice musicians came to the session and I really enjoyed !! Of course the host member was funny and awesome ; )!!
I’m proud that I could play blues with many players ♪
When I was young , I wasn’t interested in blues music at all. But now, I’m head over heels in blues and many people also think I’m “blues bass player”. Very interesting, isn’t it? I’ve never expected like that .
(some people told me they think I’m jazz player, but that’s wrong. I like listen to it but I’m suck at paying it.lol)
Playing blues is always fun ; ) Thanks everyone for coming to the blues session 😉
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 have had performance with either Natsumi or Yashiro before, but it’ll be my first time to perform with Kozo Suganuma in other words “King of number of moves in hit”. (I’m sorry to say but I have no confidence of my translation .lol)
I can’t expect how the gig it will be. It’ll takes place after I come back to Japan from Los Angeles.
Therefore, I’m pretty sure I can show you guys matured me more than now 333
