On today’s episode, North Platte guitar prodigy, Jack Bunger joins us in the studio. Jack is a senior at North Platte High School and one of our students in the NebraskaLand University Program. Jack and the Pros will be playing a variety of blues-rock at the Fox Theater on Saturday, March 5th.
Taking after his father, guitar quickly became one of Jack’s favorite pastimes as he grew up. Now, as an exceptional guitarist, he’s expanded his skills to singing, songwriting, and performing.
As many of us know, the pandemic changed live music, but Jack still enjoys performing and reaching out to his fans. We’ll discuss Jack’s journey as a guitarist, his experience at NebraskaLand University, and he’ll even be playing a bit on the show!
Join us today as we further discuss:
· Jack’s journey as a guitarist, who taught him, and his inspirations
· Where he hopes his music career will take him
· His experiences playing in North Platte and beyond
· His experience as a member of the NebraskaLand University Program
