Local Rock Musician Lands National Anthem for Pacifics Game

See his audition video.

Glenwood neighbor Jesse Brewster just landed a spot singing the national anthem at San Rafael Pacifics baseball game.

The rock guitarist recently auditioned with Local Music Vibe, . See his audition video above.

Brewster and his hippie parents settled in Berkeley, Calif. after several moves in his early life, according to KFOG. He began learning guitar in elementary school, drawing inspiration from the Stones, Bob Marley, James Taylor and Willie Nelson.

Before becoming a soloist, Brewster toured as a guitarist and backing vocalist. KFOG reports that in 2005, he released benefit record called Confessional for Polycystic Kidney Disease, a condition he and many of his family members live with.

“I love to donate to charitable causes,” he said.

Although the musician has played several concerts, the Pacifics game will be his first ball park.  He just hopes there will be another microphone to pick up his acoustic guitar.

His tips to other people auditioning for a spot: “Don’t try to sound like anyone else. Just sound like yourself.”
