Everyone at Celebrate CSUB was in for some rocking entertainment by the local youth band Creation.

The band, made up of 13-year-old guitar player Angel Perez, 11-year-old drummer Adam Perez, and 9-year-old “Ace the base” Perez, took first place and $1,000 in the Bakersfield’s Got Talent competition that day.

“It’s amazing really,” said Angel when asked how it felt to win the group section and over-all show.

The group started the competition with an instrumental rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” followed by the Nirvana song “Smell’s Like Teen Spirit”.

“I’m just completely blown away. I knew there were going to be a lot of great acts here today, a lot of good talent, I told them they were going to be up against some pretty good talent and I couldn’t be more happy with the way things turned out,” said Angel Perez Senior, father of the three talented rock stars.

Perez Senior said that he and his wife are both musicians as well. They support their sons completely and try to help them with music choice and inspiration.

The boys have been playing music together for three years now. They play every week at their church Canyon Hills.

They have also performed at a variety of other locations and are not at all shy to perform in front of a crowd.

The brothers were featured on 23 ABC News on Sunday, April 29. You can watch clips of their performance on our Instagram,
