Jake DeMarco wins radio contest.
Over the summer, KBPI 106.7 held a contest to find the greatest guitar and bass players in the state. Sophomore Jake DeMarco felt like he was up for the challenge, and entered himself, winning the title of best teen bass player in the state.
DeMarco started playing bass when he received one for his 13th birthday. “I’ve practiced a few hours a day,” DeMarco said, and “about six on weekends.”
DeMarco and his band, The Pedestrians, recently played in the Homecoming parade. His band consists of him on bass, and sophomores Henry Daniels on lead guitar and Josh Martin on drums. Jake has worked hard on his individual bass playing, but he also works hard with his band. In the future, regarding his bass playing, “I always want to improve as much as I can,” said DeMarco.
