SAN ANTONIO - This week in The Garage we took a field trip to the D-Spot for Jake Castillo’s open mic night. Castillo’s 3 piece band – JC3 – rocked a few jams for us. For fans of Santana and Stevie Ray Vaughn, JC3 is a soundtrack for San Antonio. Click here to watch…
Jake Castillo is a working class music guy. He owns and operates his own recording studio, Topstring Productions, where JC3 started. Castillo has a ton of original songs and feels songwriting is the strength of his band. They sing about life and play instrumentals serving the metal tastes of our town. It doesn’t hurt to have a studio to lay down tracks in either. Castillo gives back to the local music scene with incredible deals at his studio. He puts the same love and care he puts into his songs as he does for his client’s projects.
“I dare any other studio to beat our prices” says Castillo.
Bassist James Orr says he likes rocking in JC3 because he gets to really showcase his talents. Some people stick to root notes and just keep the rhythm but Orr likes to push the limits on his talent.
“I’m kind of a show off and this is the first band I’ve been in for a while that allows me to be a show off ,“ explained Orr.
